Australia will 'be a threat' in England - Vaughan

Former England captain Michael Vaughan says Australia will overcome their struggles in England and pose a threat in 2019.

"I have a concern that this Australian team might arrive in 2019 and be a little bit more threatening than what we’ve seen.

"In 2019, Australia will be as they are now – probably a similar group. They might find a batsman or two, which they’ll have to for English conditions," Vaughan said.

England surrendered the 2017 Ashes as Australia stormed to a massive win in the third Test in Perth and an unassailable 3-0 lead. Needing 259 to make the home side bat again, the tourists lost their remaining six wickets in 34 overs to be bowled out for 218 on the fifth day.
