Australia has overcome a strong Indian team to emerge victorious in the International Lawyers Cricket World Cup in England this week, finishing off the tournament undefeated. After a serious night's celebrations, team manager and TressCox partner Ron Heinrich told Hearsay yesterday Australia won a nail-biting 35-over, one-day final at The Oval, with two wickets and one ball to spare.
Man of the match Ashley Tiplady top scored with "a hard-hitting" 75, while Greg Rowell added a crucial 24 at the end to help the team recover from a horror start, when it lost three wickets for eight runs.
Fast bowlers Rowell, Chris McGowan and Dan Maroske rattled the Indian batsmen and captain Karl Prince bagged three wickets.
