For almost fifty years, there have been cricket World Cups. And for almost fifty years, no other nation on Earth has dominated them quite like Australia.
Whether it’s Ricky Ponting’s and Meg Lanning’s all-conquering teams, Allan Border’s underdogs, Aaron Finch’s unfashionable T20 champions, Steve Waugh’s thrilling tightrope-walkers, or any of the other Australian sides to hold a trophy aloft, these World Cup wins are not defined by the outcomes of the tournament but by the paths each side took to get there.
In The 10 Greatest World Cup Wins in Australian Cricket, sports journalist and comedy writer Dan Liebke counts down the best of these tournament victories. He guides us through the dominant, thrilling, improbable or ground-breaking journeys that the various Australian sides took to secure those wins, and salutes the cricketing legends that were forged on the biggest of world stages.
This is a book that could be written about no other cricketing nation, a celebration of the greatest World Cup-winning country there is: Australia.
