Matt Prior says that England should 'bully' Australia in order to clinch the back-to-back Ashes series.

England wicketkeeper Matt Prior believes that he and his teammates will need to 'bully' Australia to win the back-to-back Ashes series.

England have clinched three of the last four series, but their fierce rivals have a strong record of eight victories in a row between 1989 and 2003.

"I remember watching Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden and Glenn McGrath, and the way they walked around and bullied England," Prior told BBC Sport. "Maybe it's our time to do a bit of bullying ourselves."

Prior and his teammates will host the Aussies in July and August before flying to Australia in November, December and January for the return series.
