SYDNEY - England’s assistant coach Graham Gooch has said that his team is treating their warm-up games ahead of the Ashes series against Australia as a three-match series.
“We’re here to beat any Australian side put up against us. We’re not here to practice batting and bowling. If you play to win, invariably you get what you want out of the game anyway,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Gooch, as saying.
“This three-match series, as I like to call it, against Western Australia, South Australia and this game [Australia A], it’s a series to win.”
“We’ve won one, drawn one. We can win this one, that’s a two-zip win. That’s the difference. We’re here to win the games,” he added.
England had drawn the first match played against South Australia at Adelaide and won the second match played against Western Australia at Perth.
The team is currently playing their last warm-up match against Australia A at Hobart. (ANI)
