Australia crowned champions

Australia won the ICC Champions Trophy for the first time after dismissing dissapointing West Indies in the ICC Champions trophy final in Mumbai, India early this morning.

The west Indies went on to a flying start reaching 49 runs for no wicket but it was downhill after that thanks to Nathan Bracken who started the Windies collapse.

after five overs the West Windies had scored 49 runs but for the next twenty five overs they they could only add a further 89 runs and that sums it all.

On the other hand Damien Martyn and Nathan Bracken starred with the bat for Australia with man of the match Bracken scoring an unbeaten 57.

Its very hard to tell whether the Champions Trophy victory has any bearing on the Ashes test but it should give the Aussies that bit of extra confidence.
