Australia captain Ricky Ponting was delighted to see his side regain their place at the top of the world one-day rankings just days before the start of the defence of their ICC Champions Trophy title in Australia.
"We've got a lot of players in really good form at the moment, which is a really good sign," he said.
"To remain switched on and keep improving in every game is very pleasing.
"I've been asked about whether the six wins are compensation for the Ashes, but they are two totally different squads.
"All we can do is keep winning games."
Wicketkeeper/opener Tim Paine, who hit 111 in only his seventh one-day international, added: "I'm rapt. I got a bit nervous out there so to get it (a maiden hundred) out of the way and for the team to win a sixth straight game is a great performance.
"My job opening the batting for Australia is to score runs and in the first few games I felt reasonably good but just didn't go on with it.
"I'm spending a bit more time at this level and getting comfortable with big crowds."
