Sydney: Australia captain Michael Clarke says Mitchell Johnson and his fellow bowlers proved they were the best bowling attack in world cricket by whitewashing England 5-0 in the Ashes series.

Australia completed a 281-run win inside three days at the Sydney Cricket Ground as England capitulated to be all out for 166 chasing 448, with pace due Ryan Harris (5-25) and Mitchell Johnson, whose 37 wickets earned him player of the series, again decimating the England batting lineup.

Clarke said he told his bowlers "at the start of the series that I thought they were the best attack in the world and I think they've shown that in five Test matches."
