March 29th Down the years,5th World Cup title for Australia
On this day in 2015,Australia beat New Zealand in Finals
A fifth World Cup title for Australia, made sweeter because they gained it at home, in front of a 93,000-robust MCG crowd. New Zealand faltered in their first ever World Cup final (that they had made the semi-finals six instances before). They and Aussies have been arguably the two strongest teams in the 2015 worldcup, however the final lacked a aggressive area from the start, whilst Mitchell Starc bowled the dangerous Brendon McCullum for a duck. Save for Grant Elliott, who scored eighty three, the remaining batsmen succumbed to the stranglehold of Australia’s left-arm seamers (Mitchell Johnson and Starc took apiece). The modest 183 become without problems chased down in 33.1 overs with contributions from David Warner, Steven Smith and Michael Clarke, who became playing his final ODI.
