Sixth World Title For Australia

Australia have finally added the trophy they were searching for quite long to their cabinet. They had five ODI World Cup titles – the most in the history. And with the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, they have increased that count to six now. New Zealand will be heartbroken. This is their second world cup white-ball final in just over two years and in both, they have suffered defeat. A world title in Test was sealed earlier this year, unfortunately, the white-ball championship remains elusive.

David Warner has settled in. And that only means red-alert for New Zealand. He picks Ish Sodhi as his target and muscles the second delivery through long-on for a four. He then pulls the penultimate delivery to backward square leg for another four and saves the best for the final – lifting it over the bowler’s head for a maximum. This is poor bowling from Sodhi – he’s feeding deliveries in the slot for Warner. 17 runs from the over. Australia 77/1 in 9 overs, chasing 173.

History in Sights

Australia have ended their wait for a maiden T20 World Cup Trophy as they defeated New Zealand in the final by eight wickets to become the champions in Dubai. Australia chased down the target of 173 in 18.5 overs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium with Mitchell Marsh scoring an unbeaten 77 while David Warner making 53.

NZ vs AUS Preview

A new T20 World Champion will be crowned tonight when neighbours New Zealand and Australia clash in the summit clash at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. New Zealand will be eyeing a second ICC title this year having earlier won the World Test Championship in June.

It’s a hat-trick of ICC finals for the once perennial underdogs of world cricket after they outplayed India to win the inaugural Test championship in June.

They beat favourites England in the semi-final to avenge their 2019 defeat in a dramatic 50-over World Cup final at Lord’s when they went down on boundary count after a super over.

Head coach Gary Stead said the Black Caps are excited to take on the Australian challenge in what will be their first ever T20 World Cup final appearance.

“That’s probably a final that I’m not sure too many people would have predicted a month or so ago, Australia and New Zealand,” said Stead.

The Kiwis though have suffered an injury blow after wicketkeeper Devon Conway was ruled out following a broken hand when he punched his bat on his dismissal in the semi-final.

Tim Seifert is set to take over the wicketkeeping duties from Conway who made 129 runs at the event with an average of just over 32. “Obviously the loss of Devon is a big one. He’s been a big part of all formats for us. It’s a disappointing and really freak thing to happen,” admitted Williamson.

Aaron Finch’s Australians, who have won the 50-over World Cup five times, beat title favourites Pakistan by five wickets in the second semi-final. Australia were in trouble at 96-5 while chasing 177 on Thursday when Marcus Stoinis (40) and Matthew Wade (41) put on an unbeaten partnership of 82 and win by an over to spare.

Wade smashed Pakistan pace ace Shaheen Shah Afridi for three straight sixes including two audacious scoop shots – the final one sailing over fine leg to silence the Pakistan crowd.

‘Piece to the puzzle’

Stoinis said a T20 World Cup title will “mean a bloody lot to us.”

“Obviously Test cricket and the Ashes, that’s what we grew up when we played. Then the transformation of T20 cricket. It’s not a hit and a giggle anymore in terms of the pressure,” said Stoinis.

“I don’t think many people gave us a chance leading into this tournament apart from the players and coaching staff. So it’s definitely going to mean a bloody lot to us and we will be super proud when we bring that home to Australia.”

Key will be the form of opener David Warner who has plundered 236 runs at the tournament. “Everyone had written us off, but we had a lot of confidence within. I think we came here with a really clear plan to win the tournament,” Finch.

“We always felt as though we’ve got the depth of the squad and the quality in our squad to put ourselves in a position to do that.

Finch acknowledged the importance of pressing home the advantage in the first six overs of powerplay, especially against a potent New Zealand pace attack including Trent Boult and Tim Southee.

“I think we’ve seen throughout the tournament the importance of the powerplay,” said Finch.

“A lot of games have been dictated by who has won the initial contest in the power play in both innings. No doubt it will be a real challenge. It won’t define who wins the match but it does help set up your innings if you perform.”

But the skipper said he does not “fuss” about the toss and bowling first despite 11 out of 12 matches being won by the team batting second at the Dubai International Stadium.
