Hotelier Hemmes treats Australian team to ritzy Ashes victory party

Sydney, Jan.10 : Australia's cricketers were treated to an exclusive bash at the beachside Vaucluse home of hotelier Justin Hemmes after handing England a 5-0 Ashes thrashing.


Michael Clarke's men spent the evening of their fifth successive win against England on Sunday at the SCG, first in the dressing room and on the ground, and then moved their celebrations to the gothic-style estate owned by Hemmes parents John and Merivale.

The barbecue at the sprawling waterfront residence, was also attended by television presenters Hamish Blake and Andy Lee.

Entertainment was provided by Thirsty Merc's Rai Thistlethwayte. At one stage, keen muso Shane Watson joined him in bashing out a couple of tunes, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

There was also a civic reception at the Sydney Opera House for the team.
