 FEATURED MATCH OF THE DAY  
 
Final, Australia vs New Zealand

Australia 186/3 in 33.1 overs beat New Zealand 183 all out in 45 overs by 7 wickets.

All the hype about the two best teams meeting, Trans-Tasman rivalry came to naught as New Zealand capitulated with hardly a whimper.

Winning the toss seems to be the only thing New Zealand did right on the day, losing skipper Brendon McCullum in the very first over to Man of the Tournament Mitchell Starc, and Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson shortly thereafter. There was a promising stand of 111 runs between Grant Elliott and Ross Taylor but the rest of the Black Caps failed to cope with the Aussie pace attack.

New Zealand had a glimmer of hope when they dismissed Aaron Finch for a duck in the first over but then Australia’s cricketer of the season Steve Smith was involved in two productive stands with David Warner and Michael Clarke, finally seeing them home with a boundary off the first ball of the 34th over.

James Faulkner who took three middle-order wickets including both top scorers fo New Zealand was adjudged Man of the Match.

Australia’s Mitchell Starc was chosen Player of the Series.

The next World Cup will be held in England and Wales in 2019 and the format is likely to be different to this year.

DISCLAIMER
‘What's the score?' does not in any way represent CEPA's official view on the policies pursued by the cricket playing countries or the activities of the featured organizations. It should not be taken as an overall ranking of how 'good' or 'bad' countries are – we are supportive of those countries who are effectively eradicating poverty but, more importantly, question why other cricket playing countries have not been able to achieve the same goal. Our aim is to draw attention to serious issues, but using a light hearted approach to include the cricket loving public in this discussion.
