Australia wins the World Cup for 5th Time! | Full Scorecard

After bowling out New Zealand for 183, Australia finished the run chase within 34th over losing only 3 wickets. Now like Brazil in football, Australia also penta world champions in cricket.

The run chase wasnt so smooth as it seems. Aaron Finch got out early on a duck when the team had only 2 runs on the board.But Warner kept going hitting every ball out of the park! Eventually when they achieved warner’s wicket, he already had done a great damage to NZ bowling lineup. But Clarke was still their to play his best world cup innings, he eventually got out on 74 but the fate of the match was sealed by then. Steven Smith yet again played a mature innings of 56 and Watson was unbeaten on 2 runs.
