Australia stormed into their fourth straight World Cup final beating South Africa emphatically by seven wickets to set up a rematch of the 1996 World Cup final against Sri Lanka. It has produced another brutal display at the Cricket World Cup, dismissing South Africa for 149 before coasting to a seven-wicket victory in the semi-finals and Sri Lanka bowled out the Black Caps for 208 with more than eight overs to spare.
Australia had entered the tournament with five successive defeats — two against England in a triangular home one-day series and three in New Zealand despite posting big totals. But in the Caribbean, Australia has been unbeaten and has looked unbeatable with nine wins in nine matches. Sri Lanka on the other hand is hoping to beat the best Australian team and that’s the way they are preparing and putting things into play.
Saturdays showdown in Barbados might turn out to be a repeat of the 1996 final when the islanders beat Mark Taylors Australians by seven wickets in Lahore. But this year Australia has emerged as the only superpower in world cricket. They won the World Cup last time without losing a single match and have been dominating both the One-Dayers and the tests and Australia have already beaten Sri Lanka in the tournament when they won their Super Eight clash by seven wickets in Grenada 10 days ago. Will Sri Lanka be able to take revenge on the final day? Watch out only on Pehla.
