- Australia's 114-run win fetched them their sixth World Cup win - they'd also won in 1978, 1982, 1988, 1997, and 2005. (In 1978 the tournament format didn't have a final. Instead, each of the four teams played the others, and the team with the most wins was the winner.) The only final Australia lost was in 2000, when New Zealand won a tight contest by four runs. Of the ten World Cups played, Australia have won six, England three, and New Zealand one.
