Australia wins maiden T20 World Cup 2021 Title

It was a gripping moment for Australia. They needed four more runs to win the maiden title. Glenn Maxwell chose to attempt his reverse sweep, to make the ball come past: the third man to seal a historical win. 

Australia won the toss, and chose to bowl over New Zealand in the first half of the match. But the prediction of 'catch-22', incited fear among the AUS team, as New Zealand set a high score of 173 for four in Dubai. Kane Williamson kick-started the match for NZ with 85 off 48 balls. 

Australia won the T20 World Cup for the first time, as they defeated New Zealand in the final by 8 wickets. It was difficult and AUS were at a good risk to chase the score of 173/4. They got 7 balls to spare till the end, as Mitchell Marsh and David Warner sweeped off the Kiwis by hurling two half-centuries. 

Daryl Mitchell and Martin Guptill started the innings for the Blackcaps and the latter broke a boundary in the second ball of the first over. Josh Hazlewood played the second over and he accounted for only 4 runs and hurled 5 dot balls. Pacer Josh Hazlewood secured the first quantum leap for Australia as he played over star performer from their last match, Daryl Mitchell (11) in the 5th ball of the 4th over. In the 5th and 6th overs, the Kiwi batters scored only 4 runs and they were at 32/1 in the 6 overs.

Skipper Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill were highly cautious about their batting game. They managed to secure 57 runs in 10 overs for their home team. The 11th over changed the game set for NZ as they blew out 19 runs off Mitchell Starc. 

Meanwhile, in the next over Adam Zampa ran over Martin Guptill. Opener Guptill played a heinous strike, right in the beginning, of 28 runs off 35 balls. The 100 runs breakthrough was secured by the Blackcaps in the 14th over.

In the 16th over Kane Williamson got frenzied, against Mitchell Starc and ran out 22 runs. Playing an exceptional 85 runs, the captain had to stop to serve his home team. NZ cracked 172 runs for AUS to win. 

The skipper Aaron Finch failed to put a  massive strike, and he lost out after only 5 runs. However, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh came out as true assets for AUS, scoring 82 runs in just 10 overs. David Warner had to come out after a score of 53, but Mitchell Marsh stood strong till the end, not bowled and scored 77 runs for his home team. All-rounder Glenn Maxwell drew the end by smashing his customary reverse sweep. 

After the victory, Marsh and Adam Zampa yelled and cheered for their first win in the T20 World Cup. The Blackcaps had earlier headed the tournaments with 5 consecutive series losses, Australia lost 2-1 vs England, 2-1 vs India, 3-2 vs New Zealand, 4-1 vs West Indies, 4-1 vs Bangladesh. Coach Justin Langer was relieved, calmed and excited for this splendid win from Australia.
