London: Australia's legendary fast bowler Glenn McGrath feels the forthcoming Ashes will be hard fought unlike common perception.
McGrath feels the late appointment of his former teammate Darren Lehmann as the coach could kick-start a change in fortunes for Australia.
"When I was playing it was easy. But now I find it tough to make a prediction. I'm a very loyal, parochial Australian and I can never say we're going to lose a series. So I'm going to say it'll be a good, tough series," McGrath was quoted as saying by The Guardian.
