Ashes Series - English media starts the No.1 chant once again

No sooner the Ashes was regained by the English team in MCG, there are statements made about the team's potential to become the No.1. How many times have we heard this before?

Darren Gough says that England can beat India every day. He mentioned
India are fantastic in their own country and have some great individuals but I'd fancy this England side to beat them every day of the week
Look who is talking !!! How many tests, let alone series have the English team outside their own backyard? The opposition this Ashes does not have anyone outside of Michael Hussey (and probably Shane Watson) who would have been first-choice in previous Ashes series. Their current ICC ranking says it all.

Michael Vaughan goes on to say that for their own future, they have to win in SCG.
With the backroom management around the team and strength in depth in English cricket, there is no reason why England cannot achieve their goal of being No 1
The English team has given its supporters many moments of glory in the recent past - hence, the hopes of the supporters have soared. Dream on, England. Let us see how you fare in your next test series overseas.
