Waugh's hard-nosed image of World Cup success
(21 June 1999)
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.
