They have done it again!

There are no words to describe the Aussie performance in the 2007 World Cup Finals. For the third time in a row, they have dominated the finals and made them look as opening round matches and that too against minnows.

Remember the 1999 finals when they bowled out the Paks for a paltry total of 132 and scored those runs in 20.1 overs by just losing 2 wickets and Pakistan is already a world champion.

And then in 2003, Australia scored the highest ever total in a world cup final of 359 after losing only 2 wickets and then skittled out India (again a former world champion) for 235 and winning by a huge margin of 125 runs.

And now in 2007, they ran up 281 runs in just 38 overs (truncated because of rain) and restricted Sri Lanka to win by 53 runs.

So its official! Aussies are the only nation to have lifted the World Cup for 3 Consecutive Times and for the 4th time overall.

Join me in congratulating Australia for their incredible achievement!
