With a record breaking crowd of over 93 000 people who filled the MCG in Melbourne Australia to witness World Cup Cricket final between neighbours and co-hosts Australia and New Zealand.
It was a case of Hey Neighbour can I borrow some brown sugar with New Zealand winning the toss and opting to bat first. The Australian bowling was on point as always and a brilliant partnership between Taylor and Elliot could only help New Zealand secure 183 runs as the rest of the batsman faltered under the pressure of the Australian bowling attack. Both Faulkner and Johnson getting 3 wickets a piece 184 in 50 overs was more than attainable for this Australian side.
Michael Clarke scored 74 in his final ODI innings & Steve Smith added 56(not out) to guide Australia past the 184 target with 16.5 overs to spare, it felt like vengence as New Zealand beat Australia in the group stages. What a way to get revenge on the grandest stage of them all the World Cup Final.
Australia’s 5th World Cup win they are like the Brazil of cricket guess its the colour yellow an emphatic 7 wicket haul made them deserving of the title World Champions – Welldone
