    AUSTRALIA’S aggressive approach with bat and ball will prove too difficult for “little brother” New Zealand to handle in the World Cup final, writes Ian Chappell.

    IT may be a Cricket World Cup final but Richard Hinds still attempts to move the sledging of New Zealand beyond those childish sheep jokes.

    BEFORE he scaled the dizzy heights of world cricket, Brendon McCullum was jumping the fence of the Forbury Park trotting track in the tough streets of South Dunedin.

    NEW Zealand is awash with emotion ahead of the World Cup final. Babies names, Martin Crowe and Michael Clarke’s retirement are all centre of attention.

    MICHAEL Clarke exclusive column: These are the reasons the World Cup final against New Zealand will be my last ODI.

    The Official XXIX Club Song

    XXIX Club founding member Ian 'Doc' McDonald (left) with XXIX Club song author Doug ReidThere is a tavern at the ground, at the ground,
    Where XXIXers sit around, sit around,
    ‘Mid pints of beer and camaraderie,
    And talk about the MCC.

    Happy hours of reminiscing,
    Not a single stroke is missing,
    As the runs and wickets tumble from their memory,

    Good friends, the game will live for aye, live for aye,
    As long as XXIXers play, IXers play:
    So lift your glass and drink with throttle free,
    To Cricket and the MCC.

    Doug Reid – 1962
