    Australia 281/4 (38.0), Sri Lanka 215/8 (36.0)
    Australia won by 53 runs (D/L Method)
    Predictable. Congratulations though.

    Well done the Ozzies. Awesome!
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    Bloody brilliant work from the Aussies winning their 3rd consecutive World Cup.

    Gee, Gilchrist has been down on form too this series, what a day to make 149! Onya Gilly!

    Good to the see the champion Glenn McGrath finish his career on a high too.

    I'm a Sri Lankan , and I'm definitely proud of our guys. We fought to the end. But all hats off to Australia. Gilchrist was amazing.

    Yeah, Gilly did what Jayasuria did not do. That was the main difference. I'm glad for McGrath. He is one the the most underated bowlers. Most of the bowlers who get all the hype are the Lee's and the Bonds and the Akhtars because of their pace.

    Oh please...

    No technique... just mindless golf-swings and sheer power.

    That retarded looking fella with the plastic ras and white lip-stick seemed to have the most technique but even then he wasn't all that impressive.



    Congrats to the Sri Lankans... they fought all the way to the end but it was certainly depressing sitting there and watching that required run-rate just get higher and higher.



    A dis-appointing result.

    Maybe that's the way it comes across in the rest of the world but I can tell you for sure that McGrath's never been underrated in this country.

    The big debate is now, which is the best ever ODI team of the history, this Australia or 80's WI !!! Of course, we can't compare this Aussie team with any contemporary team of today ...

    Yes Shaun, Sri Lankans fought very good, but may be it was not enough to defeat the aussies ... I think John Wright and Ganguly's Indian team was closest to the Aussies in contemporary time, but again, consistency is a word unknown to the Indians what's comes so naturally for the aussies, in cricket, I mean.

    Coach is a great factor as well. As we have seen in the sub continent, a coach like Wright, Moody or Whatmore can do miracles, whereas there are others with whom a team can reach the rock bottom level, Chappel, for example.

    During the 80's I was more interested in learning to tie my shoes than in cricket but I'll still vote WI just because.

    Can't go wrong with Viv... isn't he the only guy in history to score 36 runs in a single over (aka... six 6's) ??

    Yes you got it spot on there. I remember Stephen Fleming once told that they were afraid of Ganguly's Team India than Dravid's Team India. When it comes to Indians.........more than self belief, the confidence they have in their leader is important. The team that played in the 2003 world cup was almost equal in talent to that played in 2007 but the absence of a spirited leader.....one who could lift his team members through shear enthusiasm even when the going is against them made all the difference. Remember the Indians lost badly to New Zealand in New Zealand just before the world cup. No body was making runs and when it came to the world cup didn't they have a bull run.....atleast until the final.

    Ah, no. You're thinking of Garfield Sobers who along with Ravi Shastri pulled the feat off in first class cricket. Herschelle Gibbs is the first to do it in a ODI and he did it at this world cup.

    Nice euphemism for not actually knowing much about cricket.
