The rest of this three country tournament, that had a very strong line up including world champions Australia, did not develop in the same manner. To often rain stopped play and spoiled the proceedings. The 220 mm rainfall caused some matches not to be played or just partially. The final between Australia and Pakistan was a low scoring match on 29th August. In the end this was the only match that was not influenced by rain. The entire tournament was broadcast live by FOX Sports and was followed by a worldwide television audience of several hundreds of millions viewers.
