Australia: 2007 World Cup winners

We said that Australia hadn't really been tested. Now they have and they've triumphed. We're more than happy to give them credit. Actually, we've been vomiting blood all morning at the prospect of lauding them, but we're still going to do it because we like to at least pretend that we're fair.

We've had to split this into two because we've just realised that we've written too much for one post.

Australia were far and away the best side in this tournament. It'll be interesting to see what happens in the aftermath as well. The inevitable cull will be a lesson in cold-hearted planning for all the other nations. Australia's success is no accident.

Brad Hogg is sure to go, but bigger names like Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist won't be appearing at the next World Cup. Will they get another one-day game? Expect a rash of jump-before-pushed retirements shortly.

Perhaps other teams might like to hire "has been's" Gilchrist and Hayden to show them how to bat.

Any team would take Gilchrist.
