Aussies march toward World Cup Final
Another McGrath wicket sends the Aussies celebrating. I'm sitting up late here in China, reading the game on my computer as it happens in West Indies. Australia (153/3) walked all over South Africa (149/10) to win a place in the Final of the ICC World Cup on Saturday. Their opponent will be Sri Lanka in a replay of the 1996 Final. Glenn McGrath collected early wickets - three of 'em - in his final series for Australia. & the new gun, Shaun Tait gained four, with an improvement in his 'scattergun' technique. Michael Clarke starred for Australia with the bat, so even though the old guard has retired recently, the new blades seem to be showing similar style.
