Tears for souvenirs for Smith
After completing their rout of England, Australian skipper Steve Smith says the emotions of the Ashes win got the better of him.
There had been a worry that the weather would ruin the final day at the old Waca Stadium but thankfully it held off long enough for Australia to complete the job on a sorry looking England side, winning by an innings and 41 runs.
Smith has special memories of Perth making his home Test debut at the ground, against England, in 2010 and his first home century in 2013.
He has now capped that by reclaiming the Ashes on the final day of play at the famous old Perth ground before they move to a new stadium across the city.
"I was crying in the sheds a bit a minute ago," he said.
"Everything just came out. So much work and time has been put into this."
