and the winner is...

BBC SPORT | Cricket | Gilchrist stars in Aussie Cup win

So basically the world's longest presentation ceremony comes to an end. No-one even got near the Aussies. The final ended somewhat farcically but ultimately, from the outset of the competition all those weeks ago, there was only ever going to be one winner.

If I were going to be ultra picky the way the final ended with Sri Lanka chasing runs in rain and then near darkness meant there was never any chance of an upset. If the weather's not good enough then play it the next day...simple

This is a minor, minor niggle. No-one can say the Aussies were head & shoulders above everyone else.

England, at best, marked time throughout the tournament...never looked like putting together any real form after the Sri Lanka defeat. Pity as it would be nice to have all three world cups under our belts.
