Cricket World Cup: Australia overwhelm New Zealand, claim fifth title
March 29 , 2015
Grant Elliott and Ross Taylor's 111-run partnership was the only silver lining in New Zealand’s batting as wickets fell in a heap on both sides of that stand.
Australia, who had thrashed India in the semi-final, had little trouble in reaching the Kiwis' target, with captain Michael Clark, playing the last ODI match of his career, scoring a confident 74.
This was Australia’s fifth World Cup crown.
