Australia is the ICC World T20 Cup 2021 champion!
Australia lifted the ICC World T20 Cup trophy for the first time by defeating New Zealand with eight wickets in a nerve-wracking final on Sunday.
Australia after winning the toss opted to bat and restricted the Kiwis to post a total of 173/4 in an all-important final.
Chasing New Zealand’s 173 runs, Mitchell Marsh scored blistering 77, David Warner scored 53 runs off 38 balls. Glenn Maxwell 76 runs off 49 deliveries. Skipper Aaron Finch once again failed to perform and perished scoring 5 runs off 7 balls.
Kane played a special inning to set up the win, however, the partnership between Marsh and Warner sealed the game for the Aussies. The way Marsh began his innings from ball 1 took New Zealand completely by surprise.
For New Zealand, Trent Boult was the most effective bowler who took two wickets.
