    Ducks and a dux

    World Cup final: Ducks and a dux as Australia triumph.

    This is the headline from Sydney Morning Herald.

    What I understood to the above head line is: Australia bowled out their opponent 5 batsmen for ducks. The captain of Australian team played an important knock which leads to Australia's victory.

    Am I correct?

    Re: Ducks and a dux

    Yes, 'dux' probably refers to Clarke. It's there more for the pun.
