Not League related but interesting nontheless. Taken from Cricinfo after the Aussie Cricket win:

The matchwinning-shot sparks off huge celebrations in the dressing room. Ricky Ponting and his men now run on to the field to celebrate with Martyn and Watson. This was the only cup that they had not laid their hands on. The wait is over now.

West Indies collapsed sensationally - calypso collapso as they say - after a dream start and Australia, after a stutter at the start, reached the paltry target without much fuss. Not for nothing they are the best team in the world. They must have been shocked when the West Indies openers carpet bombed them but recovered quickly to display the much-famed Australianism.

John Arlott had written about it in 1948 at the end of a successful tour of England by Don Bradman's men. ""Australianism," wrote Arlott, "means single-minded determination to win - to win within the laws but, if necessary, to the last limit within them. It means where the 'impossible' is within the realm of what the human body can do, there are Australians who believe that they can do it - and who have succeeded often enough to make us wonder if anything is impossible to them. It means they have never lost a match - particularly a Test match - until the last run is scored or their last wicket down."

Not much has changed in these 60 years. They are still the best.

Will we be able to say this about the Aussie League side?

It was a good win - that spirit has been developing at manly in 06, although not to that level we competed for 80 minutes in most games, something thats been missing for the last decade
