Australian captain Michael Clarke chats after Australia claim a 3-0 series win over Sri Lanka in the final Test at the SCG.

Clarke spoke about the series win and said that it was a fantastic feeling after a series loss to South Africa at home. He highlighted the drastic improvement in all departments after the poor series against the Proteas.

Clarke, who was the top run-getter in the calendar year of 2012 in Tests, was named the man of the series.

He top scored with 316 runs in three Tests against Sri Lanka, with one century and three half-centuries at an average of 79.00.

Clarke led from the front and helped his side whitewash the Sri Lankans and deny the visitors their first ever Test win on Australian soil.
