Shane Warne highlighted that Joe Root-led England team is not the worst side to have toured Australia. Earlier, Ricky Ponting had dubbed the current team as the worst visiting team to compete in the Ashes Down Under.

Having lost three consecutive Test matches in the ongoing series, England have already surrendered the prestigious trophy. They managed to draw the Fourth Test but even in that match Australia were a better side.

England lost the series in just 12 days. However, Nasser Hussain’s England side was the worst, as they lost the Ashes in mere 11 days. They were beaten 1-4 during the 2002/03 Ashes series. England suffered three innings defeats and the fourth one by 5 wickets.

England won the final Test at the SCG by 225 runs. “They’ve lost the Ashes in 12 days, so it’s not a record. I think Nasser’s Hussain’s team lost it in 11. I don’t think it’s the worst team either to have toured Australia, but I think it is one of the worst teams with respect to the decisions that they’ve made in pure Cricket terms,” said Warne.
