London: Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath has said that Michael Clarke and his team would now vie for a 5-0 Ashes whitewash over England after ensuring the return of the urn Down Under.

According to the Guardian, McGrath pointed out that victory in an Ashes series is the ultimate for any Australian cricketer, and it always has been, but this win is particularly special.

To have been under the pump for so long, to have lost three series against England on the bounce, and to come out and play the way they have done is outstanding, McGrath added.

England on the other hand look to be in a pretty bad place at the moment and Five-nil is a real possibility, he further said.
