Australia have shown great patience with bat and ball in a 4-0 Ashes series win, and Steve Smith wants selectors to do the same as he aims to kickstart a golden era with a new-look XI.
Pat Cummins earned man-of-the-match honours on Monday at the SCG, where the hosts defeated England by an innings and 123 runs in the series finale.
Cummins cleaned up England's tail clinically after lunch on day five of the fifth Test, finishing with eight wickets for the match.
Smith's next assignment is a five-match ODI series against the same opposition that starts on Sunday in Melbourne.
However, the ensuing four-Test series against South Africa and next year's Ashes in England are also firmly on his mind.
Cummins finished as the leading wicket-taker in his first home Test series with 23 scalps but every member of the hosts' attack fired at various points.
Selection masterstrokes Shaun Marsh, Mitch Marsh and Tim Paine all stepped up, while every incumbent batsman posted at least one century with the exception of Cameron Bancroft.
Smith hopes Bancroft, who failed to reach 30 after excelling on Test debut at the Gabba, is opening the batting on March 1 in Durban.
"The more we play together, the more we're going to get better as as group," Smith said.
"He's worked hard and probably hasn't scored as many runs as he would have liked throughout this series.
"But he's a good young player. He's a great character - got a terrific work ethic.
"The more he plays, he's going to continue to improve and get better.
"So if the selectors keep the faith - and I hope they do - then it'll only be good for him and good for the group."
Smith argued the most impressive part of the series triumph was that every member of his side delivered at some stage.
"That's what has been so special about it," he said.
"It hasn't just been one or two guys.
"England have played exceptional cricket; we have just been able to get on top and win those key moments."
Smith is understating his influence as man of the series, having scored 687 runs at 137.4 including man-of-the-match knocks in Brisbane and Perth.
Smith outgunned opposite number Joe Root, who was hospitalised because of a gastro bug but batted briefly during Monday's morning session.
England conceded defeat at 9-180 on Monday, with Root unable to return to the crease after retiring hurt a second time.
Jimmy Anderson, serving as vice-captain in the absence of suspended star Ben Stokes, spoke as Root slept during the post-match formalities.
"It's been closer than 4-0. We've been on top in some games, if not all the games at some stages. We've just not capitalised at the key moments," Anderson said, his caught-behind dismissal having brought the curtain down on the series.
"We have been outplayed in the key moments of each game.
"They have a fantastic bowling attack and all their batsmen have come to the party."
