ICC Champions Trophy, Mumbai: West Indies 138 all out

Australia determined to break Champions Trophy jinx

Australia's quest for their elusive Champions Trophy will face its toughest challenge when they take on the unpredictable and defending champions West Indies at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. Both team captains are equally determined to win the coveted trophy. World Champions Australia, appearing in the final for the first time, have a slight edge over the Caribbeans with a five man pace attack. West Indies, who had to suffer the ignominy of qualifying to defend their title, will be helped by the convincing victory over South Africa in the semifinals. In the last four matches they played, they are 2-2, with West Indies winning the encounter in the group stages by 10 runs as Australia fell short of Windies' score of 234 for 6. West Indies (from) Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Brian Lara (Captain), Dwayne Bravo, Runako Morton, Dwayne Smith, Marlon Samuels, Carlton Baugh (Wicket Keeper), Ian Bradshaw, Jerome Taylor.
Australia (from) Shane Watson, Adam Gilchrist (Wicket Keeper), Ricky Ponting, Damien Martyn, Andrew Symonds, Michael Hussey, Michael Clarke, Brad Hogg, Brett Lee, Nathan Bracken, Glenn McGrath.
