Melbourne: Scoreboard of Australia vs New Zealand, World Cup 2015 final played at Melbourne Cricket Ground here Sunday.

A collective display of disciplined bowling from the Australians helped them restrict a nervous New Zealand to a paltry 183 in the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup.

A mid-innings collapse, which saw New Zealand lose their last seven wickets for only 33 runs in 10 overs, effectively ended their hopes of putting up a respectable total despite semi-final hero Grant Elliott's gutsy innings of 83 off 82 balls.

Seamer James Faulkner's brilliant change-ups during the middle overs saw him end with impressive figures of 3/36 in 9 overs as the Black Caps collapsed from a decent 150/3 after 35 overs to 183 all-out in 45 overs in about an hour.

Faulkner was well complimented by the two Mitchells -- Starc (2/20 in 8 overs) and Johnson (3/30 in 9 overs) -- who had the opposition batsmen in trouble with pace and movement on a lively MCG track in front of 91,000 plus spectators.
