Mitchell Marsh smashed an unbeaten 77 as Australia beat New Zealand by eight wickets to clinch their first T20 World Cup title in Dubai on Sunday.
Chasing 173 for victory, Australia depended on a 92-run second-wicket stand between David Warner, who made 53, and Marsh to achieve their target with seven balls to spare in Dubai.
“This is huge, to be the first Australian team to do it. I am so proud of how the guys went about the campaign,” said Australia captain Aaron Finch.
Wicketkeeper Matthew Wade said victory showed why Australia should not be under-estimated.
“We felt like a lot of people wrote us off but we spoke about being the first team to do this for Australia and it feels really special,” he said.
The seventh edition of the tournament was moved out of India due to the coronavirus pandemic to be staged in Oman and United Arab Emirates.
