The 2007 Cricket World Cup comes to an end

Some days ago, I wrote an update about what was going on at the World Cricket Cup 2007 in the West Indies. By then, only eight teams were still on the race for the trophy. Today, we know what will be the final destination of such prize.

On April 28, the final game between Australia and Sri Lanka was played at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. For the third consecutive occasion, the Aussies managed to win the World Cup and take it home. To do so, they defeated the national team of Sri Lanka by 53 runs, although the game was suspended after 38 overs per team due to rain. However, the result is out there, and I'm pretty sure that the Aussies should be very excited about this success.

I congratulate the Australian team for this achievement, and encourage other teams to keep working hard towards the next World cup, which will be held in 2011!
