Ben on...Sri Lanka need a miracle

Australia are such overwhelming favourites for tonight's final that it is hard to see how Sri Lanka have any chance of winning. The World Cup has not always gone to the strongest team however.
  • In 1983 India beat the invincible Windies.
  • Australia won in 1987, back in those long lost days when they weren't actually very good.
  • In 1992, Imran Khan's Pakistan came through, even though they barely deserved to make it to the semis.
  • Setting a precedent for themselves, Sri Lanka took they title in 1996, despite having been the world's whipping boys up till then.
