"From the moment we assembled in Brisbane for the first Test, through to the last wicket falling here in Sydney, we have had incredible support from the Australian public," Lehmann said.

"At times the crowd support was so strong, the boys felt like they had extra players on the field with them. It's been quite incredible. This is our small way of thanking Australians for their encouragement and passion throughout the Ashes. I've got no doubt it played a huge part in the team's performance."
