The first clash that would come to anyone's mind is the 1987 World Cup final.

Batting first, Australia posted a total of 253/5, courtesy David Boon's 75, while a cameo by Mike Veletta (31-ball 45) helped them a lot.

In reply, Steve Waugh and Allan Border's two wickets each, coupled with tight bowling, pushed England onto the backfoot, as Aussies won by 7 runs.


England trump Australia in two consecutive finals

England managed to tame the Aussies, away from home, in a clinical fashion during 2006-07 tri-nation series.

Having come off a commanding win in the first final, England posted an average total of 246/8 in Sydney.

However, rain made things easier for England, as the target was revised to 187 from 27.

Liam Plunkett picked three crucial wickets as England won the series.
