Adelaide, Jan 28 (ANI): Australian captain Michael Clarke today said that his team has sent out a message to the superpowers of world cricket with their 4-0 Test series demolition of India.
Chasing a world-record target of 500, India resumed on 6-166 and was bowled out for 201 on day five at Adelaide Oval.
"We've shown a lot of people around the world that we're on the way up. We're getting better every day," Clarke said after Australia claimed a 298-run win in the fourth Test on Saturday.
India slipped from second to third on the ICC rankings on 111.10 points while Australia narrowly remain fourth on 110.80, trailing England (125) and South Africa (117).
Australia can climb to third with victory in the Test series in the West Indies in April, The herald Sun reports.
Clarke was in career-best form, hitting 626 runs at 125.20, including a triple hundred and a double ton to win the player-of-the-series award.
"The disappointment of last summer has inspired a few of us. There's been a bit of fire in the belly,' Clarke said of Australia's 2010/11 Ashes defeat. (ANI)
