Rolton sets up Aussie victory

An unbeaten century by Karen Rolton has helped Australia win the Women's World Cup after they beat India by 98 runs in the final in Pretoria on Sunday. Australia recovered from a precarious 2-31 to reach 4-215 off their 50 overs. India collapsed to 6-64 before being all out for 117 in the 46th over.
The Australian victory may finally alleviate some of their agony in losing to New Zealand by four runs in the final four years ago. Rolton admitted to the Herald prior to the tournament that that loss had haunted her. India were playing in their first Women's World Cup final after eliminating the 2000 champions New Zealand in the semi-finals.
