It's an awesome experience to win Ashes: Smith

Australia regained the urn after an innings and 41 run victory over England in the third Test at Perth, moving into an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

Langer, a batsman who played 105 Tests for Australia, was pictured offering Shaun Marsh his congratulations while Johnson headed straight for his former team-mate and fellow fast bowler Mitchell Starc.

Michael Vaughan sees no other Ashes outcome than a 5-0 series defeat for England and has expressed his concern about what lies further ahead. The way we've gone about it was spectacular.

Regarding what might follow this series, he added: "The problem when I look at the England team is they are going to go through that tricky position very soon where they have three really senior legends in the team - Alastair Cook, Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson".

When Bayliss was asked if he was certain he was the right coach to take England forward, the Australian said: "I think I am". The way we've been able to win this series and wrap things up here in Perth and get that urn back, it's been quite wonderful.

In the bowlers' list led by England's new-ball bowler James Anderson, Australian paceman Josh Hazlewood has gained one slot to move into the top five after finishing with eight wickets in the match.

"The bowlers have done a terrific job throughout the whole series".

Smith shared a mammoth partnership with Mitchell Marsh in Australia's first innings, the all-rounder emphatically justifying his call-up by scoring 181 - his maiden Test hundred.

"It's important we don't panic and make hasty decisions after three games".

"We're going to celebrate this one first".

England had won four of the last five Ashes series' against its great cricket rivals but was swept 5-0 on its last visit to Australia four years ago and could face the same gloomy prospect again with back-to-back matches in Melbourne and Sydney still to come.

"He's done it so many times before and he's a very stubborn guy who likes proving people wrong", he said.

"They've been in situations where things haven't gone for them before and that's why they've played so many games. They will stay together and get better and better".

"Then we'll get to Melbourne for a Boxing Day Test match - it's an fantastic occasion, particularly an Ashes one, and hopefully we can keep playing some really good cricket and get ourselves 4-0 [up] and then maybe 5-0 in Sydney as well".
