Melbourne: Australia have "turned a corner" and would have won the third Ashes Test if not for the weather, former Test captain and selector Allan Border said.

England retained the Ashes when the third Test ended in a draw Monday after bad weather halted play at Old Trafford, with Australia in a commanding position. The Australians narrowly lost the first Test by 14 runs before a demoralizing 347-run defeat in the second Test.

With two matches left to play in the current series, and the return series starting Down Under in November, Border said in a members-only section of the Cricket Australia's website that England have reason to be worried. (Also read: Clarke now has eyes set firmly on drawing series)
