Yes, good people of websville, I am proud to say that once again Australians are champions of the world. But honestly, could anyone not see it coming??
A stunning performance from Gilchrist’s massive 149 brought the World Cup to a close on Saturday. Although it seems to be a World Cup that most would rather forget, you can’t begrudge the Aussies their triumph – they didn’t lose a single match.
“We’ve dominated this tournament probably like no other cricket World Cup has been dominated before,” Ponting said. “To make some very, very good international cricket teams look pretty ordinary at times, everybody had to be proud of that.” And we damn well are, Ponters!
So farewell Glenn McGrath – you’re a real champion who’ll stay in the history books. And we’ll have to come up with another player-related, crowd-pleasing chant! (Ooo ah, Glenn McGrath!)
