T20 World Cup final: ‘Feel for Kiwis but in the end Australia peaked at the right time’

Australia defeated New Zealand by 8 wickets as David Warner and Mitchell Marsh took the initiative and steered the Kangaroos to their first-ever T20 World Cup. Regardless of dropping Aaron Finch within the third over, Australia pressed on and clinched the victory.

Marsh smashed an unbeaten 77 off 50 balls and Warner made 53 off 38 as Australia reached 173/2 in 18.5 overs.

Earlier New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson was brutal and inventive throughout his superbly crafted knock of 85, which took New Zealand to a aggressive 172/4 in 20 overs.

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

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

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

A plethora of reactions poured in from all corners of the social media as everybody chimed in to congratulate the Aussies.
