The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 came to an end on Sunday night with Aaron Finch’s Australia winning their maiden global title in cricket’s shortest format with a clinical 8-wicket win over Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand. The Kiwis chocked in the summit clash yet again, as they failed to put up a big enough total at the Dubai International Stadium. Captain Kane Williamson’s fine knock of 85 meant the Blackcaps posted a record total (172/4) for a team batting first in a T20 World Cup final, but it was never going to be enough as conditions favoured the team batting second, as it had throughout the tournament. The duo of David Warner and Mitchell Marsh shared a 92-run stand to help the Aussies complete a comprehensive win.
