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.
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.
