3. Australia’s World Cup win:
One of the highlights of the year was Australia’s glory in the World Cup 2015. This was the fifth time when the Kangaroos emerged as the 50-over World Cup champions. The Baggy greens were one of the red hot favorites going into the mega event as it was held in Australia and New Zealand respectively. The conditions were tailor-made for the Aussies but still you have to go out and perform on the field which the Australian team did with perfection. The final was utterly dominated by the Kangaroos at Melbourne where they thrashed the Black Caps in every department and ended their dream run in the World Cup on a bitter note. James Faulkner was named the Man-of-the-Match while Mitchell Starc was adjudged as the Man-of-the-Tournament. It also marked the end of Michael Clarke’s glittering ODI journey on a wonderful note.
