Australia – Champion of Cricket World Cup 2015



Australia beat New Zealand to win the World Cup for a fifth time at an ecstatic Melbourne Cricket Ground

“It was a brilliant performance. Australia were the best team in the tournament, fantastically led by Michael Clarke. Today they were just too powerful and strong for New Zealand, who have been great throughout the tournament. They’ve had everything you’d need in a one-day side, with the left-arm pace of Johnson and Starc. They’ve got everything covered.” (Former England captain Michael Vaughan)
