Matthew has shared his predictions about the current Ashes series, which started at Trent Bridge on the 10th July. After watching England triumph in the first Test, he expects them to win the series 3-1 against Australia. The England team are hoping to emulate their series victories of the past, including the classic 2005 win which Matthew was a part of.
Expectation has been riding high for this England team and they entered the tournament as favourites. Alistair Cook's team looks extremely strong and has many fantastic players, though the first Test was an extremely close contest.
England won their most recent series in 2010-11 which was their third victory in four series. The 2005 winning team, which Matthew was part of, began the swing from the dominance of Australia to England enjoying more success.
Matthew will be at Lords this week to enjoy the second Test match and hopes to see another England victory.
