It just weeks before hosts Australia get into the cricketing grove, with their biggest cricketing rivalry against visitors England in the 2017-18 Ashes. With all the build-up in full swing, along with tons of experts comments, former Australian pacer Ryan Harris too has joined the panel. Harris was a member of the 2013-14 Ashes winning squad, where England were whitewashed 0-5. Meanwhile, Harris feels than Australia’s current pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins is better than the trio from his 2013-14 season, which consisted of Harris himself, along with Mitchell Johnson and Peter Siddle. The Ashes gets underway from November 23 at The Gabb in Brisbane. The Ashes 2017-18: Steven Finn ruled out with knee injury

On current Australian pace attack

“Hazlewood’s probably doing the job that I did [four years ago] and he’s quicker than me, and he gets more bounce. And you’ve got Starc who can definitely do a Johnson role, and you’ve got Cummins so you’ve probably got an extra bit of pace. Cummins on his day he’s fast as well. Obviously we did a good job last time, but the key is going to be working as a team, as a bowling unit. That’s what we did well last time and obviously got the results,” said Harris, as reported by IANS.
