History of the World Cup finals - 2003
 


2003 South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya

Even without Warne, who failed a drugs test for a slimming tablet shortly before the tournament, Australia scaled new heights when they went through the tournament unbeaten in 10 matches.

In the final against India captain Ricky Ponting struck a chanceless, unbeaten 140 with eight sixes to propel Australia to a daunting 359 for two.

India's remote victory chances disappeared when Glenn McGrath caught and bowled Sachin Tendulkar for four and Virender Sehwag's fighting 82 only delayed the inevitable.

Scores: Australia 359 for two (A.Gilchrist 57, R.Ponting 140 not out, D.Martyn 88 not out); India 234 off 39.2 overs (V.Sehwag 82). Australia won by 125 runs.Courtesy: Getty Images
