Australia captain Ricky Ponting believes his side can whitewash England again during the Ashes this winter.
The last time Australia hosted a Test series between the two rivals they subjected England to an embarrassing 5-0 defeat.
England regained the urn with a 2-1 series victory in 2009 and have built on that success with a draw in South Africa, two victories against Bangladesh and are currently in control of a four-Test series with Pakistan.
However, Ponting also believes that Australia have made significant improvements since their defeat a year ago and can secure another comfortable win if they play to the best of their ability.
"It's absolutely possible. There's no reason why not. It's all in our hands. It's how well we play and how well we take charge of different situations," he said when asked if he thought his side could pull off a whitewash.
"We've learnt from a lot of the mistakes that we've made.
"There's no doubt we made some mistakes in the last Ashes series in England that probably at the end of the day cost us the series.
"We know now that we're a more experienced and probably a better team now than we were then."
Some of Australia's batsmen have had to fend off criticism recently, with Ponting suffering from erratic form and Marcus North also struggling.
But the skipper is not overly concerned by his side's recent displays with the bat and is confident they can improve ahead of the start of the Ashes in November.
He added: "I have got confidence in the batting line-up that we have, that they are good enough to win an Ashes series. That's certainly what I will be pressing on the guys over the next month.
"(North) by his own admission has probably been a little bit inconsistent.
"But when he's in and gets to 20 or 30 he generally goes on and makes a really big score and some of the hundreds he's made for the Australia team have been absolutely outstanding. When you see those types of innings you see the type of player he is.
"I have been a lot more inconsistent since the start of last summer than in most of my career. I have a lot of work to do - as the rest of us do."
England's bowling attack, which has enjoyed great success in the first two Tests against Pakistan, will look to exploit any possible weakness in the Aussie batting order.
However, Ponting does not think they will have it all their own way when they leave their home country.
"They are going well. They've played some good cricket for quite a while now," he said.
"We will have a different set of conditions and a different ball when they come out here."
