Srini hails 2015 WC as most popular ever

Hailing the just-concluded World cup as the most popular in cricket’s history, ICC chairman N Srinivasan on Monday said the event’s success has proved the ODI format is in good health.

Australia beat New Zealand by seven wickets in the summit clash yesterday in front of over 93,000 spectators at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Srinivasan said ICC was delighted with the manner in which the game’s pinnacle 50-over event was hosted and delivered. “On behalf of the ICC, I would like to firstly congratulate Australia on its fifth ICC World Cup win. Australia displayed great tenacity, skill levels and consistency throughout the tournament and are worthy winners. It was a wonderful event with many thrilling highs and magic moments, which will live long in the memory. Australia has set a new benchmark for limited overs cricket,” Srinivasan said.
