Ricky Ponting led his mighty invincibles to the second World Cup victory in a row as a captain. Like in 2003 his team did not lose a single match and have defeated every opponent quiet convincingly. Adam Gilchrist could not have chosen a better time and place to strike his form and what an amazing innings he has played. In a rain shortened match, he completely demoralized the Lankan attack and shut the doors on them. As the Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene said in his acceptance speech Sri Lanka was left to do only catching all through their innings with the target after Australia made total of 281/4 from 38 overs. Though Jayasuriya and Sangakkara raised a glimmer of hope for the Lankans, in the end the kangaroos proved out to be too good for the lions to chase.
