It is not like England doesn't have frailties in all departments. On paper Australia has a more complete attack than what England does.
I thought India would do well last time we toured, and we all know how that ended. We also saw how India fared in New Zealand in 2020. So, I don't think it is time for us to feel positive about how we'll perform in England. In India, before that, I feel more positive of our chances.
