BBC Sport - Ashes 2015: Crowd could be decisive in series - Andrew Strauss

'Home crowd could be decisive in Ashes'

England cricket director Andrew Strauss says Australia go into the Ashes series as favourites but thinks the home crowds could help England in their battle to regain the Urn.

Strauss is delighted with how England performed in the recent series against New Zealand but says the Ashes is at a "different level".

The former England captain also says that new coach Trevor Bayliss is "chomping at the bit" to get started against his home land.
