104th Over
That is all from the WACA today with Australia regaining the Ashes with a victory of 150 runs in the 3rd Test to let Australia have an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the 5 Test Series.
Cook: Fantastic innings from Stokes full of character especially on a tough wicket with all the cracks developing. Australia have been the better side, but we have been outskilled in all aspects and it is very hard to say that.
Man of the Match - Steven Smith with his first innings 100 where Australia needed someone to step up and he produced a fine 111. This is his 2nd Ashes Test 100.
Clarke - "The support has been outstanding and we could not be happier with the public support and credit to the players and the way they have played."
Clarke "I don't know what to say, it's been an amazing performance not only in this Test Match but the whole 3 Tests."
Mitchell Johnson on his return to Test Cricket "It was pretty hard running into bowl as the emotions were going, but it's a great feeling! I came back from injury with plenty of doubters but I worked hard and have taken the opportunity with both hands."
Ryan Harris on his first Ashes victory - Harris - "An amazing feeling for everyone in the team, we wanted it so bad and it's amazing to finally regain the Ashes!"
The Australian bowlers were amazing in both innings with the total wickets of the game were Harris (4) Siddle (4) Lyon (4) Johnson (6) Watson (2)
Australia have produced a clinical performance with both bat and bowl. Smith (111), Warner (112) and Watson (103) lead the way with hundreds while each bowler contributed in both innings.
Australian players now break off and thank the crowd for what was a tremendous effort in such hot conditions for both players and spectators!
That wicket sends Australia into celebration as they embrace into a team huddle celebrating an Ashes victory, the crowd is celebrating and the ground is a buzz as the country gets to taste an Ashes victory since 2009
