Michael Vaughan is confident England can recapture the winning habit soon under Andrew Strauss's guidance.
Yorkshire batsman Vaughan has been forced to watch from afar as England, under the guidance of Kevin Pietersen and now Strauss, has managed to win just one international match so far this winter.
Even that victory came in fortunate circumstances as West Indies made an embarrassing Duckworth/Lewis miscalculation in the first one-day international in Guyana last week.
But former skipper Vaughan is backing Strauss to get the team back on track in time for the Ashes this summer.
"I believe Strauss is the right man and a very, very good leader," he told Sky Sports News.
"I hope he is going to be captain for the Ashes and well beyond that, because he creates a stability about the team.
"We just have to get that winning momentum back to the team. It will just happen, as long as they keep doing the right things.
"There's a lot of talent in and around the England dressing room. It's just trying to nurture that talent into a winning formula."
Vaughan, who is currently completing his pre-season tour with Yorkshire in the Emirates Airline Pro ARCH Trophy in the United Arab Emirates, still believes he can reignite his international career, meanwhile.
"If they picked me tomorrow I feel I could go out and produce a performance. I'm in a good state of mind and I have no doubt that I could go in and perform at the highest level now," he added.
"But I have to go back into the county game to put pressure on the selectors to hopefully play against the West Indies in early May.
"I'd love to play against them at Lord's and give myself a chance of playing in the Ashes that's what I, and a lot of players in the county game, will want to be a part of."
