Moeen's England spot in jeopardy
Former England bowler Graeme Swann says he "can't see" a place in the England team for Moeen Ali unless he improves.
Moeen has endured a torrid time in Australia during the ongoing Ashes series, taking only three wickets in the four Tests played and averaging 19 runs with the bat.
It is the 30-year-old’s first Ashes campaign Down Under and Swann thinks his dismal showing in Australia should leave his place under threat for the fifth and final Test in Sydney.
"His confidence has to be rock bottom," Swann told BBC Sport. "I feel for Mo. He's fighting demons at the moment. His confidence is so low that when he bowls there are no revolutions on the ball, no energy in his action.
"Unless they play two spinners in Sydney, I can't see how you could fit Moeen into the team."
