Video - Tottenham's Michael Dawson On The Ashes

Watch as Tottenham Hotspur and England defender Michael Dawson talks about his love of cricket, watching Joe Root bat and this winter's Ashes tour.

Tottenham captain Dawson, who has been capped four times by England, played cricket as youngster before realising his future lay in football.

However, he remains a keen fan and got down to Lord's to watch this year's second Ashes Test, and he recalls Joe Root's maiden Ashes century.

Speaking to us at a 'Battle Of The Ashes' event hosted in London by D & G Partners, he then talks about the squad's chances of a repeat series win in Australia this winter.
