Australia Confident of beating New Zealand in World Cup Final

Melbourne, March 28: The Kangaroo team seem to be much confident of beating New Zealand in the World Cup final to bag the Trophy for the fourth time. The two teams will meet tomorrow at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Talking to media, Australian captain Michael Clarke said, "It is a special game, no doubt about it, but it needs to be about the team and I want it to be about the team. I just said it to my teammates then. And I have been the one to come out and say, it is not emotion, it is skill that helps you win major games and major tournaments, and tomorrow will be no different. It is a wonderful opportunity for every single player in that change room to walk out onto the MCG in a World Cup final. It is a very special event. But yeah, it is no more special because it is my last game. It is about timing for me, and like I say, I think now is the right time to walk away from the One Day game".

"I believe if we play our best, we can beat New Zealand tomorrow. I do not buy into the favourites or not favourites. New Zealand have been the form team of the competition. New Zealand have beaten us once in this tournament. But I am confident if we play our best, we can beat them tomorrow", he said.
