Perth: After outshining England in all departments for the third time in the ongoing series to reclaim the Ashes, Australian skipper Michael Clarke on Tuesday thanked his fans and supporters for the support.

Clarke, who slammed two centuries in the first two Tests, thanked his supporters on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

Australia, who had won just one Test prior to the return Ashes series in 2013, defeated England in the first three Tests and sealed the series. Clarke, who has been through a tough time ever since players like Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey retired, expressed his happiness on Twitter after reclaiming the urn.

England are having a tough time in the tournament, and with two Tests remaining, the Alastair Cook-led side would want to show some fight in the remaining matches.
