$500,000 bonus for Aussie cricketers after Ashes triumph

AUSTRALIA'S Ashes-winning players are to be granted a tasty bonus of more than $500,000 as reward for their drubbing of England this summer.

Leading 4-0 approaching Friday's fifth and final Test in Sydney, Michael Clarke's players have emphatically put behind them a year of turmoil to be the toast of the country.

And just as the MCG was full as a world-record crowd descended on the MCG on Boxing Day, so will be the players' pockets with the lucrative financial windfall for their exemplary efforts over the past seven weeks.

The impending bonus payments for the Australians who have reclaimed the Ashes total $520,008, a figure that will rise to $580,008 if they complete a series whitewash at the SCG.

Few would argue that they do not deserve every cent.
