Two Ashes winners - and even 12th man James Faulkner - have urged the Australian selectors to keep an unchanged team for the fifth Test.
Opener Chris Rogers and spinner Nathan Lyon said the 11 players who had won the first four Tests deserved the opportunity to attempt a clean sweep at the SCG this week.
Doubts over the fitness of paceman Ryan Harris and all-rounder Shane Watson, and the modest results of No.6 George Bailey, have prompted the selectors to put Nathan Coulter-Nile and Alex Doolan on standby and contemplate promoting Faulk-ner into the middle order.
But with Harris and Watson both adamant that they would be fit, and Faulkner admitting it would be difficult to replace his Tasmanian captain, it is conceivable that Australia will employ an unchanged team throughout a five-match series for the first time in their history.
"It would be quite nice for all the guys who have played in the whole series to be rewarded at the end," Rogers said. "If you were to miss out this game, to be presented with a victory at the end wouldn't be as sweet. Everyone is keen to play."
Rogers revealed that Australia watched footage of England celebrating their 3-0 series win at The Oval in August to provide even greater motivation to finish off the clean sweep in Sydney.
Lyon has been one of the quiet achievers in the series with 16 wickets at 26.94.
A strong finish at the SCG could see him become just the fifth Australian off-spinner to claim 20 wickets in a series in this country and first since Bruce Yardley 31 years ago.
"I'm expecting the same XI," Lyon said.
"It's good to have Alex Doolan come into the squad but everyone has been performing really well.
"There's been (fitness) talk about Ryan Harris before all five Tests and he's come out and bowled really well."
Faulkner, who was named in the squad to play England in five one-dayers after the Ashes, predicted that he wouldn't be required. He joined the team in Sydney yesterday after being released to play a Big Bash match but was not confident of a call-up.
"I'm sure in the next 24 to 48 hours that they will give me some sort of indication but we've performed well as a team in the first four Tests so it will be a hard spot to get," he said.
Faulkner didn't buy into suggestions that Bailey might be dropped after scoring just one half-century in his first seven innings.
"He has played four Tests now and won four so he's got a pretty good record," he said.
Faulkner broke his right thumb while batting in the WACA Ground nets before the third Test but said the injury would not prevent him playing.
