Sydney Drew Brees Jersey , Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- The beleaguered Australian cricket team is returning home with a taste of dignity after victory in the one-day international series against England, providing a tickle of momentum for the return series starting in the Australian summer.
Australian skipper Michael Clarke has been keen to talk up the positives after a miserable Ashes series for the once proud Australians, suggesting that Australia can carry their momentum into the return series after Clarke (75) and deputy Shane Watson (143) wrapped up the 49 run win in the fifth and deciding ODI in Southampton on Monday.
Watson's gargantuan eighth one-day century was the key as Australia won their first silverware of a dolorous English summer after failing in unexpected and sometimes stunning fashion in the Champions Trophy, the Ashes, two Twenty20 games to a powerful English squad.
While the English weather conspired against the Australians Custom New Orleans Saints Jerseys , wins in Manchester and Southampton proved ample for Clarke to finally front the press with some good news.
"Everyone knew how important today was for us to be able to win this one-day series," he told reporters.
On his own form, and the back problem that has dogged his career, Clarke was typically reticent, preferring to deflect praise to his under-performing colleagues Throwback New Orleans Saints Jerseys , in the style of all modern Australian captains.
"It was nice to contribute as well. I had the easy job of standing up the other end to 'Watto'." The way he played, "my job was made a lot easier." After suffering their third straight Ashes defeat, the Australians have a rare chance to reclaim the urn on home soil within the year, beginning with the first Test in Brisbane in November.
Poor performances on the pitch have been shadowed by controversy and scandal since the Indians handed Clarke's young side a thrashing in May.
After sacking former coach Mickey Arthur just days before the Ashes, star batsmen David Warner began a protracted public meltdown as equally spectacular as his meteoric rise.
Warner's omission for the ODI series was something of a surprise after ring-in coach Darren Lehmann suggested poor form Authentic New Orleans Saints Jerseys , rather than errant behavior was the reason.
And while the hard-hitting Warner has made just one half-century in his past 11 ODIs it was undoubtedly Warner's suspect composure - which saw him land a punch on England opener Joe Root in a Birmingham bar - that sealed the deal.
The celebrated incident - after the two sides met at Edgbaston when Warner scored just nine - appeared to foreshadow the chaotic Australian campaign. Warner was also suspended in the lead-up to the Ashes for abusing Australian journalists via social media, before being roundly sent home form Australia A's tour of South Africa.
As was widely reported, Warner's meek return in the third Test was greeted by boos from a delighted Manchester crowd.
"By his own admission, David would acknowledge that unfortunately he hasn't scored the weight of runs that he would like recently in one-day cricket for his country."
And while it may be a different format, Clarke New Orleans Saints Jerseys For Sale , who seems to have aged ten years since taking up the captaincy after Ricky Ponting's retirement is arguing his team have nursed some new found confidence heading into the Australian Ashes.
"I think for the guys that are involved in the Test series, it gives every single player confidence, there's no doubt about that," the skipper said.
"It's a different format. I certainly think the guys that are involved in the Test series, can take a lot of confidence out of having success and beating England in their own backyard."
While the form of fellow seamer Mitchell Johnson has been a fillip for Clarke's depleted bowling stocks Cheap New Orleans Saints Jerseys , in-form Mitchell Starc, is now likely to miss the return Ashes tests in Australia over Christmas after being ruled out for himself with a troubling back injury.
Starc was the third-highest Australian wicket-taker in the Ashes series against the 'old enemy', playing just three games, but snatching 11 Englishmen at an average of 32.45.
His loss highlights a ravaged Australian pace attack, with concerns lingeriong over the fitness of Ryan Harris (hamstring) P.J. Williams Saints Jersey , James Pattinson and Pat Cummins (back).
Dr Justin Paoloni, Cricket Australia's chief medical officer, said in a statement that Starc was suffering from an early stage ba.
