Australian cricket Captain Michael Clarke has refused to get caught up in talk of a five-nil Ashes series whitewash, after Australia reclaimed the urn yesterday.

Australia took an unbeatable three-nil series lead yesterday with a 150 run win in the third test at the WACA Ground in Perth.

Chasing an unlikely 504 for victory, a century from Ben Stokes raised English hopes, but four wickets from Mitchell Johnson and three from Nathan Lyon proved crucial.
