Australia retains ICC Champions Trophy

Australia retained the ICC Champions Trophy after beating New Zealand by six wickets.

Shane Watson was probably the difference between the two teams as he scored an unbeaten 105.

In the semis against England he had been even more impressive scoring a superb 136 for a resounding victory over England.

I think this has been a largely interesting tournament with lots of surprising results along the way.

I was surprised by India and Sri Lanka's performance. The hosts South Africa also performed poorly when I expected them at least to make the semis.

Sri Lanka were also off their usual best as they failed to make an impact at this tournament.

It was good to see Australia continuing with its form from the one day international series in England which Australia won 6-1.

After reaching the semis I think England were unfortunate to meet Australia again because I think that had they met another team chances are high they would reached the final.
