Feels that they are getting the rewards for their hard work which is pleasing to see.

09:50 IST:-Man of the Series, Pat Cummins, says he's pretty happy with how the summer went personally. Adds that after the India loss, he had a couple of weeks off so that helped. Feels that the wicket at the 'Gabba under the lights with the pink ball was amazing. Continues saying that the Burns-Head partnership really set it all up. Ends by saying that there's plenty of time left for the Ashes, so there are plenty of guys who can take heart from this and look forward to that.

09:48 IST:- Man of the Match, Mitchell Starc, says he tried to forget everything and bowl as fast as he could. Adds that the wicket slowed down a bit but he managed. States that they had an idea about what to expect here and the momentum from the win in Brisbane really helped.
