PHILLIP Hughes’ tragic death rocked Australian cricket to core, but the popular batsman would have been proud of his former teammates for their courageous summer.

    AUSTRALIANS may be celebrating another Cricket World Cup triumph this morning, but the sentiment around the globe is one of disappointment.

    AMID Michael Clarke’s fairytale it was easy to forget that it was another odds-defying fighter who will go down in the record books as man-of-the-match.

    JAMES Faulkner was man of the match while some big name Kiwis went missing in a one-sided World Cup final. See how every player rated.
