Oz clean sweeps Ashes 5-0 with 281-run win in Sydney Test

Sydney, Jan 5 : Australia has fulfilled their vow of completing a 5-0 Ashes whitewash after their 281-run win in the fifth and final Test in Sydney in only the third day.

The juggernaut revved up after tea and Australian bowlers Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson and Nathan Lyon have steamrollered England, whose top-order offered little resistance, in just 31.4 overs into surely the greatest embarrassment in the tourists' history.

However, England opener Michael Carberry showed some fight and went to the break on 43 alongside Gary Ballance on 7, although that did not manage to save England from seeing their fond memories of three years completely been eradicated with an utter annihilation.

England is 155 and 166 all out with 24.2 overs remaining.
