Champions Trophy 2006

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.

Adam Gilchrist sets record

Australia's Adam Gilchrist is better known for his explosive batting than his wicketkeeping but he secured a special place in the history of the game's glovemen yesterday.
The scorer of 30 centuries in Tests and one-day internationals, Gilchrist has become the first wicketkeeper to reach 400 dismissals in one-dayers. Gilchrist, 34, achieved the milestone when he accepted a chance off Glenn McGrath's bowling to remove Indian hero Sachin Tendulkar for 10 in their Group-A Champions Trophy clash in Mohali. Gilchrist, who boasts 16 hundreds in 85 Tests (5,124 runs at 48.80 overall) and 14 centuries in 255 one-day internationals (8,358 at 36.49), is also closing in on Queenslander Ian Healy's Test record of 395 dismissals.
