“One Of The Finest Victories In Our Sporting History”: Adam Gilchrist On Australia’s World Cup Triumph

Former star batter Adam Gilchrist on Monday rated Australia’s World Cup triumph as one of his country’s “finest” cricket wins after they beat hosts India to earn a sixth one-day international title. Opener Travis Head starred during the final in Ahmedabad on Sunday by hitting a sparkling 137 off 120 deliveries, powering Australia to a convincing six-wicket win. Head joined Ricky Ponting and Gilchrist as the third Australian to score a century in a men’s World Cup final.

“So proud of this Australian team and crew,” Gilchrist wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“To win another World Cup in the manner and circumstance they have is one of the finest victories in our sporting history I reckon.

“Time to celebrate,” added Gilchrist, who scored 149 not out in the 2007 World Cup final win over Sri Lanka in Barbados.

It was the sixth time the Australian men’s side has won the one-day international World Cup after victories in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015.
