Ashes, Cricket, order, restored..

Revenge a dish best served rolled:

"Not considering the cricket we've played. If you look at the way we've played each Test match, then I think we've deserved to win in three," said Ponting, whose men won by 277 runs in Brisbane, six wickets when England's batsmen fell apart on the last day in Adelaide, and 206 runs here in Perth.

"The cricket we've played has been as good as we've seen from this team for a long time. A lot of hard work has gone into what we've done. Since the series started, the guys have been able to rise to every challenge that's been put before them. I'm really proud of the way we've approached this whole thing."

Men of the People: Both Rudd and Howard either turned up at the game or telephoned their congratulations. Keep up the good work, fellas.
