World Cup 2015: The Perfect Ending

A jam-packed MCG erupted with joy as Michael Clarke’s men lifted their 5th World Cup title, beating New Zealand by 7 wickets on Sunday. Say what you want, but this is Australia – a team that knows winning is their only habit. There is a reason they have dominated world cricket like none other over the years. They are ruthless, they are aggressive and now, they are world champions once again!
Going into this highly anticipated finale, Australia was undoubtedly the favorite. But nobody, including the Aussies, could afford to underestimate the Kiwis. After all, McCullum’s boys were on top of their game throughout the World Cup. But on the big day when temperament and skill mattered more than form and spirit, New Zealand was outdone. It was anticlimax for Brendon McCullum, whose final World Cup innings ended in the first 3 balls, thanks to Mitchell Starc’s beautiful swing bowling. The early damage reduced New Zealand to 1-1.
Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson began restoration, but were left helpless by a stringent pace attack and eventually gave in. Once again, it was the semi-final hero Grant Elliot who did all the hard work. His 82-ball 83 somewhat restored order, while Ross Taylor chipped in with much-needed runs at the other end. The duo stitched a 111-run partnership, giving New Zealand hopes of a 200-plus total. But Australia’s destroyer-in-chief, James Faulkner had other plans. Faulkner steamed in to fetch two Kiwi wickets just as the Batting Powerplay began, sending New Zealand into perennial trauma. They never recovered from it. Some impeccable pace bowling coupled with flawless fielding effort restricted New Zealand to a meager total of 183.

Anything below 250 at the G was going to be a cakewalk for the chasing team. But Trent Boult’s fiery spell triggered signs of an upset, when he sent Aaron Finch packing, leaving Australia 2 for 1. However, David Warner blasted through the early overs, shaking off all the nerves. His quickfire 45 made way for Steve Smith and Michael Clarke to ease into a century stand and deliver the winning runs in the 34th over. In the end, it was Australia who played like champions with a phenomenal display of skill and aggression. New Zealand just couldn’t match up.
It was no dream final for Baz and his boys. Yet, New Zealand remains one of the most beloved teams in world cricket, mainly because of the way they play their cricket. They’re passionate, they work hard and they deserve so much more than they’ve got. After 6 failed attempts, they finally broke the jinx and made it to the finals, only to lose to a better team. Australia will never have the soft corner that New Zealand does in our hearts, but they’re champions alright. 
Australia has won the World Cup on home soil. They can forget about 1992.
