Congrats Australia - World Cup 2003 Winners

Mon Mar 24, 2003 12:52 am

Congrats Aussies... that was an extremely dominating performance by what is undoubtedly the best ODI unit in the world.

Even the staunchest Indian supporter will admit that the best team won today. Great tournament by both Australia and India though.

2 SAA 744s and 1 SAA A340-600. Pretty impressive sight.

Congrats to Australia. Unfourtunatly Canada didn't make the super sixes and Kenya's cinderella run ended short.

I think the funniest thing is this morning's headline in the Times Of India.

"SHOCK AND AWE : World Cup goes Down Under"

Indeed, "shock and awe" is an appropriate description for the Aussie tactics in yesterday's game.
