Australia Beat Kiwis to Become Fifth Time World Champions

History repeated itself and again the kangaroos made victory over the Kiwis. After a break in the year 2011, Aussies won all the ICC world cups. The legacy was started in the year 1999 and Michal Clarke continued the same who also announced his retirement from one day cricket on this occasion. Aussies have grabbed world cup titles in the year 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007& 2015. There was not much to watch from New Zealand as Australian team had their control over the entire match. So still let’s see how it went.Aus Victory Celebration

New Zealand Skipper Brendon McCullum went for a duck and further to this Corey Anderson and Luke Ronchi, also disappointed us. Grant Elliott was the top scorer made 83 runs, with the partnership of 111 with Ross Taylor who scored 40 runs. Martin Guptill scored just 15 runs and was bowled by Glen Maxwell. Not much was left in the match when New Zealand settled for 183, which was supposed to be cakewalk for the Aussies. Mitchell Strac, James Faulkner and Mitchell Johnson bowled really well and took 2, 3 and 3 wickets respectively.

Aussies lost Aaron Finch on a duck but David Warner and Steve Smith together played a good innings and scored 45 and 56 runs. Steven Smith remained not out and the final blow came from the skipper himself. Clarke scored 74 runs and was bowled by Henry. Thus in just 33 overs Aussies scored 186 runs with the loss of 3 wickets. Daniel Vettori of New Zealand suffered with the injuries and thus proved to be ineffective.

James Faulkner was declared as man of the match for his excellent bowling spell and Mitchell Starc was declared as the man of the series. Aussies yet again made a dashing victory and proved that East or west Aussies are the best. There was all party, dance, merry making for the young players like Mitchell Starc, Johnson and Maxwell. It would take a lot of effort and time to break the world cup winning record of Australia.
