Australia’s 281 run win marks only the third whitewash victory in history.

Not long before England’s fate was sealed, Michael Carberry’s broken bat, snapped in half from a fast ball by Ryan Harris, was seen as a sign by some of England’s tour performance.

Harris took the last wicket of Boyd Rankin to complete a five-wicket haul.

Mitchell Johnson was named man-of-the-series after taking 37 wickets at 13.9, while Harris was named man-of-the-match, reports The AAP.

It’s a dream victory for the Aussies after England won 3-0 to secure the urn for a third consecutive series in the UK last year.
