Here’s all you need to know about the final, top run scorer in the tournament, prize money for the winners and more.
T20 World Cup Final 2021 Australia vs New Zealand
Australia defeated New Zealand in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Final at the Dubai International Stadium with yet another heartbreak for the Kiwis. The Aussies defeated the Kiwis by 8 wickets by Aaron Finch’s team’s outstanding batsmanship. What might have looked like somewhat a tough target to chase i.e. that of a 173 was actually a piece of cake for the Aussies as Mitchell Marsh displayed an incredible innings in the night of the final.
But we must commend Kane Williamson and his side for giving it their very best to set target of 173 for the Aussies, which however proved to be an easy task for the latter side. What New Zealand needed was quick wickets from the commencement of the second innings and that was something which looked probable after Trent Bout dismissed Aaron Finch in the third over. But as soon as Mitch Marsh stepped out to bat, there was nothing stopping him from demonstrating his beast like batting skills.
