[FLASHBACK] A lopsided World Cup final
It was a literal walk in the park for a brilliant Australian team led by Steve Waugh as they overwhelmed Pakistan in the final of the 1999 World Cup final at Lord's on June 20.
In a damp squib of a final, Man of the Match Shane Warne took 4 for 33 and Glenn McGrath had miserly figures of 9-3-13-2, as Pakistan was bundled out for a paltry 132 in 39 overs with Extras (25) being the top-scorer in the innings. Australia made a mockery of the chase as they reached the target for the loss of two wickets in only 20.1 overs to be crowned world champions.
