Oz players echo Haddin's defining words 'We got 'em back' after 'famous' Ashes victory

Sydney, Dec 18 : Bowling braveheart Mitchell Johnson broke down in tears when the moment finally arrived and Australia reclaimed the Ashes and the whole Australian team was ecstatic, according to reports.

According to, Brad Haddin, whose middle order batting was so often the glue through the three Test victories, had the defining line: 'We got 'em back' he said, over and over.

Captain Michael Clarke echoed that and he said it was a fantastic feeling

Johnson finished with 4-78 and the emotion of a man on course to be player of the series, under the weight of previous Ashes failures, was overwhelming, the report said.

Clarke added that he does not think it can get much better.

Ryan Harris said that every single player in the team deserved all the success.

George Bailey, who provided one of the series highlights with his world record 28 off the final over of Australia's second innings said he was lucky to be part of the experience, the report added.

Meanwhile, England captain Alastair Cook, who like Clarke was playing his 100th Test, had to concede Australia was a superior team following wins by 318, 218 and 150 runs, the report further said.
