Australian skipper keeps lids on expectations despite thumping 381-run win.
Australian captain Michael Clarke has sung the praises of his side after they drew first blood in the Ashes, thumping England by 381-runs in Brisbane.
It was the sixth biggest loss for England ever in Ashes history, however, Clarke said there was still plenty of work to be done to ensure they achieve the goals they have set out for themselves this Australian summer.
Mitchell Johnson earned man of the match honours for his efforts with bat and ball, while David Warner and Clarke himself starred with centuries in a near complete performance.
The second Test match gets underway in Adelaide in 10 days’ time.
