Australia are the 2015 ICC Cricket World champs and they deserved every accolade, as from the start of the event to the final match at the MCG they were just better than the other countries with this being the 5th time they have won. Australia certainly showed how destructive their seam attack was, with New Zealand just not in the game when the captain Brendon McCullum chose to bat first and within 3 balls he was back in the club house.
