Australia vs West Indies, final

November 5, 2006

Australia beat the West Indies by eight wickets to win the ICC Champions Trophy for the first time, at the Brabourne stadium, in Mumbai, on Sunday.

Chasing a revised target of 116 in 35 overs after rain interrupted play, the World champions coasted home in 28.1 overs.

Earlier, Australia recovered from an early onslaught by Chris Gayle to pack off the defending champions for a meagre 138 in 30.4 overs.

Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (27 in 18 balls, inclusive of four fours and a six) gave the West Indies a rousing start before Bracken, the pick of the Australian new ball attack, bowled Chanderpaul (in picture) off a bottom edge.
