Australia wins Champions Trophy

Australia lifts the 2006 Champions Trophy by emphatically beating the West Indies in a rain shortened final. Starting spectacularly the West Indies collapsed even more spectacularly to 138 in 30.4 overs. Australia were 45/2 when the heavens opened and when play could actually resumed messers Duckworth and Lewis had dictated a revised target of 116 in 35 overs. That the Aussies quickly achieved with 41 balls to spare and no further wicket hiccups.
