[Trevor Chesterfield

LONDON (England) - There is no euphemism to describe such a comprehensive victory as Australia achieved at Lord's on Sunday when their utter professionalism annihilated Pakistan: hard, tough and uncompromising.

To some they are the unsmiling giants, the true World Cup champions, making up for what they failed to accomplish in Lahore three years and four months ago; a time of torment turned around after their humiliation by Sri Lanka, the smiling, happy-go-lucky pygmies of the Test arena who rode their luck and good fortune.

Crofty's Last Thoughts on the World Cup (24 June 1999)

(24 June 1999) The furore has now died down, so perhaps I can give my general overview of what transpired from that very first game of the 1999 Cricket World Cup, played on May 14 between England and Sri Lanka at Lords, to the last game, at the same venue, between Pakistan and Australia, played on June 20.

At the final toll, I had the extreme pleasure of covering 12 games for television commentay, 11 games for radio commentary and an additional 5 games for the written press. To be sufficiently involved to cover 28 of the 42 total games was a true delight for me. I would not have traded it for the world! I am very pleased! [More]
