Steven Smith and Shane Watson are convinced Australia are on course to retain the Ashes in England later in the summer.

Smith said he doesn't think England will "come close" to challenging the Australian team on current form, while Watson said there is "huge hunger" within the squad to end the sequence of three consecutive Ashes series defeats in England of 2005, 2009 & 2013.

Smith is widely expected to be formally named Australia's one-day captain after Michael Clarke decided to retire after the World Cup.

Smith is also tipped to take over the reigns of the Test team when Clarke decides to hang his boots.
