Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff believes that Australia have missed their only chance to register a Test victory over England this summer.
Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff believes that Australia have blown their only chance of picking up a win in the Ashes series.
The Baggy Greens fell to a 14-run defeat in the first Test at Trent Bridge after coming close to pulling off an unlikely victory, before Brad Haddin edged a James Anderson delivery to Matt Prior.
Flintoff wrote in his column in The Sun: "I'm sorry Australia, as close as you got I can't help think you might have blown your best chance for a win in this Ashes series.
"Because as well their lower order battled, Michael Clarke's side are not in the same class as England. They don't look very good.
"England made a meal of beating them at Trent Bridge, but will only come back stronger at Lord's on Thursday."
The second Test begins at Lord's on Thursday.
