Steve Waugh warns England to come up with a 'Plan B' for The Ashes as Bazball could collapse
Steve Waugh has warned England they are set to be exposed by Australia in The Ashes if they don't have a back-up plan for when all-out attack doesn't come off.
England's 'Bazball' revolution in the past 12 months has revived Test cricket in the country, and prompted the most anticipated Ashes series in 17 years.
But Australia have made no secret of the fact they have serious question marks over whether it can withstand the Australian attack.
England have scored at 4.85 an over in the past year while racking up an 11-2 record in Test cricket, and five of their batsmen have scored at a strike-rate of above 75.
In contrast, Australia have made their game out of building pressure and strangling opponents with the tightest economy rate of any team in recent years.
