Joey Rasdien's Five-For

Bravo Aussies!

This is the last #FiveFor covering the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. It included the following...

1) Watching the game between the other two favorites Aus and NZ I am even more convinced of our chances of going all the way. Both teams showed clinks in the batting. Surprisingly Australia bowled better then what I expected but I knew New Zealand will bowl well. On current form they have the best bowling attack in the tournament.

And they proved it again in the final.

2) Funny thing is NZ was the only team to have chased targets well through out the tournament. It was actually unfortunate for McCullum to win the toss. If Micheal Clarke won the toss I doubted he would have sent New Zealand in to bat.

3) watching the final it scares me that all Australia's fast bowlers besides Mitchell Johnson are under the age of 25. In my opinion Mitchell Stark was by far the best bowler of the tournament with his pace and accuracy and being a lefty. We spoke about how left armers will be difference in bowling attacks. James Faulkner with his poise and skill proved to be a handful as well taking wickets at key moments for Australia throughout the tournament.

4) I am some how happy for Micheal Clarke to have contributed when it matters most. He didn't have a great tournament but his batting steered Australia to victory in their most important match of the tournament.

5) and lastly I would like to to say that this tournament identified future greats of the game. Steve Smith of Australia has the calmness of Steve Waugh, The talent of Ricky Ponting, tenacity of Allan Border, the self belief of the Chappel brothers combined and he is still a student of the game in the Shane Warne mode. This lad has a bright bright future. Kane Williamson has the makings of being New Zealand's all time leading run scorer. Kyle Abbott will probably lead the Proteas attack in years to come. But although he wasn't at the World Cup Kagiso Rabada together with Quintin De Kock will be carry the Protea Fire for years to come.

Here is joey's last #FiveFor in full...
