ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) Michael Clarke's Australians finished off England's tail-enders in less than an hour Monday to win the second test by 218 runs and take a 2-0 series lead into Perth, where they're aiming to reclaim the Ashes with a third straight win.
Australia won the series-opener by 381 in in Brisbane, only three months after losing 3-0 in England for its third consecutive Ashes defeat. Now Clarke and Co. are heading to the WACA ground at Perth, where England hasn't won since 1978 and where Mitchell Johnson bowls his best, confident they can end England's Ashes roll.
"The next test is what's important," Clarke said. "I'd love it to be three-nil - that's our goal."
