World Cup 2000 - Match Reports



These two teams have been the stand-out teams of this World Cup. Add to that the fact that the score between them stands at one-all, and the scene is set for a truly great World Cup Grand Final.

Earlier this week, South Africa achieved the historic first ever win over Australia in a World Cup. The Australians regouped admirably, responding in their second meeting with a resounding win.

Today is the third, the deciding, and the most important meeting between these two teams. A delicious prospect.

We're away ....

Australia batting first.

In the 12th over, Australia are 81
( with a batting pair to go, Australia at this stage would be looking to score over 100 )

But not to be. Australia finished with 97

In the 5th over, South Africa have scored 24. Another close game is looking a distinct possibility. One of the South African players was carried from the court in the 15th over of the Australian innings, with a badly sprained ankle. No further details available at this stage.

Last over. South Africa 50. Australia Women will win and retain the World Cup

While we're waiting for this game, the Canberra Rockets site has some inside information from the Australian camp. And some big calls on the make-up of the teams and outcomes of both Grand Finals.
