After a series of injuries that kept him out of the national setup, Mitchell Marsh finally found his night’s count and glory as he guided Australia to their maiden T20 World Cup title at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. The all-rounder scored an unbeaten 77 off just 50 balls, and was involved in a match-winning partnership with David Warner, who smashed a 38-ball 53 as Australia beat 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 win:

Chasing a target of 173 runs, Australia won the match with seven balls to spare. Trent Boult gave a good start to New Zealand after the dismissal of Aaron Finch. However, Marsh and Warner added 92 runs for the second wicket as the Aussies crossed the boundary with ease.

Earlier, New Zealand had managed to reach a total of 172/4 thanks to captain Kane Williamson’s 85 off 48 balls.

Josh Hazlewood was the bowler’s choice 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 in his four-over spell.


Warner was named ‘Player of the Tournament’ after Babar Azam finished as the second highest run-scorer in the showpiece event. He scored 289 runs in 7 matches at an average of 48.16.

Warner had a disappointing IPL campaign with Sunrisers Hyderabad after being dropped in the first half of the tournament.
