    Awesome effort form Watto though, and when it counted most. One of the few times I wish fiery was no longer banned
    Haha, he posts on Cricsim. Funnily enough he made a ridiculous thread laughing at Watson after those two ducks. Has been thoroughly laughed at since.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Watto now averaging over 40 with the bat and under 30 with the ball in ODIs. WAFG.

    Good to see us get up, when I went to bed last night I was reasonably confident we'd win given the position NZ were in. The way we started with the bat would have made me a bit nervous though.

    Australia have to ask themselves a serious question though: Was it worth winning when the end result was being photographed in those jackets?

    Browsing it now too. Fiery acting as toolish as ever, which is no surprise, but some of the rubbish from Julian is just as bad. Still, Fiery got everything that was coming to him.

    Poor showing from the kiwis. Well done Aussies and Punter for player of the tournament and winning the golden bat. Well done Watson for MOTM.

    Australia is still too good for the rest of the world.

    Gotta agree.. They seem to slip up now and then but no one plays these knock out games better than these guys.. Gotta hand to Australia.. Always step up in the big finals and semis games.. Awesome and thoroughly deserved defence of the title.. Punter showing that he is one of the best, if not the best, knock out match players ever...

    we may argue all day long that he is not in Sachin and Lara's league but he does own both of them in terms of important odi knocks.

    Lara and Punter are both matchwinners. The former more for playing in a rubbish team and the latter is just an outright gun in matches which count. He was clearly the batsman of the tournament again and no other batsman in contemporary cricket can get near him as a big match player.

    ****y game, NZ had some goodplaying batsmen, but the OZ bowlers really went hard on them.

    OZ won the game and deserved to play.

    Pity the guys I wanted to see preform didn't manage to do so; Ponting , McCullum.

    I actually agree... Sachin doing his best to sort of reducing that hole in his record now, but for sheer consistency in doing that, you have to pick Punter..

    Averaging close to 50 as an opener, good strike rate, good conversion rate when he passes 50, if he can keep that up then along with his bowling, he could go down as an ODI great.
