NZ vs AUS final highlights: Marsh, Warner win Australia their first T20 WC

Aaron Finch and Kane Williamson with ICC T20 World Cup trophy.


Australia lifted their maiden T20 World Cup trophy with a commanding eight-wicket win over New Zealand in the title clash which was rendered one-sided by Mitchell Marsh with his blistering 77-run knock, at Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

Skipper top-scored for the Black Caps with his 85-run knock while opener contributed 28 runs after Australia inserted them in to take first strike.

Pacer Josh Hazlewood (3/16) took three out of four wickets while leg-spinner (1/26) accounted for one Australian batsman.


Opener David Warner’s 38-ball 53 and Marsh’s 50-ball unbeaten 77 meant that Australia overhauled the target with consummate ease in 18.5 overs.

Put into bat, New Zealand literally struggled in the first 10 overs with Martin Guptill’s painful 28 off 35 balls slowing the proceedings.


Williamson made the stage his own own with a grace of a ‘ballet dancer’ hitting 10 fours and three sixes in his 47-ball knock.


In the last 10 overs, New Zealand scored an astounding 115 runs to make a match of the ‘Grand Finale’.

Williamson shifting gears with such ease that it was a treat to watch him play. The first 16 deliveries that he faced fetched him only 15 runs as was back then in the midst of a good spell while Guptill’s scratchy form also affected the skipper.


But once, he decided that he needed to get a move-on, he hit all those copybook shots at his own free-will scoring 70 off the next 31 deliveries.


The Black Caps skipper showed why he is one of the modern-day greats during the back-10 as he strategically took the attack back to the opposition camp. He became the captain with the highest score in a T20 World Cup final surpassing Kumar Sangakkara.
