Notably, it is the first time Australia managed to win the T20 World Cup title since the tournament’s inception in 2007.
Offering to bat first, New Zealand posted mammoth target of 172 runs on the board in the scheduled 20 overs, thanks to Kane Williamson’s impressive knock of 85 runs off 48 balls.
Coming to chase, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh provided a terrific start to Australia as both smashed quick half-centuries. Australia chased down the set target with seven balls to spare and thrashed the Kiwis to lift their first ever T20 World Cup Trophy.
Mitchell Marsh was their highest scorer, having smashed 77* runs off just 50 balls with the help of 4 sixes ans 6 fours. While Warner got out on 53 after smashing 3 sixes and 4 fours.
