THE triumphant Aussie cricket team has left itself open to criticism after drunken revelry while celebrating its World Cup victory.

UNDER-FIRE and under the influence, Brad Haddin has shot back at the critics, saying the Kiwis deserved the berating he gave them.

ONE of the Hunter Valley’s leading thoroughbred studs is expected to complete the purchase of unbeaten Golden Slipper winner Vancouver this week in a deal which values the colt at more than $40 million.

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.
