How Twitter Reacted to Australia’s Maiden T20 World Cup Triumph After Win Over New Zealand | Cricket News


After a series of injuries that kept him out of the national setup, Mitchell Marsh finally found his night of reckoning and glory as he guided Australia to their maiden T20 World Cup title at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. The all-rounder smashed 77 not out off just 50 balls, and was involved in a match-winning partnership with David Warner, who also starred with a 38-ball 53 as Australia trounced New Zealand by 8 wickets in the final.

After Australia’s win over New Zealand, Netizens flooded Twitter with congratulatory messages for the Aaron Finch-led side.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Australia’s maiden T20 World Cup triumph:

Chasing a target of 173, Australia won the game with seven balls to spare. Trent Boult had given New Zealand a fine start after he dismissed Aaron Finch. However, Marsh and Warner added 92 runs for the second wicket as the Aussies crossed the line with ease.

Earlier, New Zealand had managed to reach a total of 172/4, thanks to a 48-ball 85 from skipper Kane Williamson.

Josh Hazlewood was the pick of the bowlers for the Aussies as he took 3 for 16 from his quota of four overs. Adam Zampa also contributed with the ball, taking 1 for 26 from his four-over spell.


Warner was named ‘Player of the Tournament’ after he finished as the second-highest run-getter in the showpiece event behind Babar Azam. He aggregated 289 runs at an average of 48.16 in 7 games.

Warner had a disappointing IPL campaign with SunRisers Hyderabad after he was dropped from the team in the first half of the tournament.
