Steve Waugh undecided on Ashes favourite

Australian great, Steve Waugh has decided not to call favourites for the upcoming Ashes series as he believes the series will be closely fought between the arch-rivals. Australia will be seeking their first away win in the Ashes for 18 years.

"Depth in the squad will be important but I honestly think if I was a betting man I wouldn´t back either side because I don´t know who´s going to win. It´s going to be that even. I think it´s going to be a fantastic series," Waugh said.

England is going into the series buoyed by the World Cup triumph – they also beat 2015 champions Australia in the semi-final -- but Waugh believes that win would have no impact on the Ashes.
