It does not get any better than this!!!!

Michael Clarke’s Ashes heroes have completed a 5-0 series win.
Nathan Lyon led them in the team song, Under the Southern Cross I Stand , in the middle of the SCG soon after play, rather than simply in private in the dressing room as the players would usually sing it.
''Whenever he wants to sing it, we do as we're told,'' skipper Michael Clarke said. ''He wanted to do it in the middle of the wicket so we happily obliged.''
A lethal cocktail of fast bowling, positivity with the bat, playing with freedom and, most of all, a renewed sense of fun - concocted under the leadership of coach Darren Lehmann and Clarke - was behind the huge victory.
The difference between the two teams was enormous. The margins in the five matches were 381 runs, 218 runs, 150 runs, eight wickets and, finally, on Sunday, 281 runs. Alastair Cook and his men simply had no answer.
''I think we've played the brand of cricket that Australians expect and that we expect as a group. I think that's been pretty evident watching from the sideline,'' said Haddin, who after a brilliant individual campaign was pipped for the man of the series award by Mitchell Johnson.

Brad Haddin and man of the series Mitchell Johnson celebrate Australia's 5-0 clean sweep at the SCG yesterday.
