Australia opener David Warner, who was struggling with poor batting form ahead of the 2021 T20 World Cup, has come back hard in the recently-concluded tournament. The southpaw has been adjudged as the ‘Player of the Tournament for smashing 289 runs in seven innings. 

Earlier, he had a miserable run while playing for the franchise of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL 2021 on the same grounds. However, his national side backed him throughout the all-important competition before he ultimately found his lost mojo back.

Meanwhile, the left-handed batter’s wife, Candice Warner has slammed all the trolls who had raised questions on Warner’s dipping performance.

The mighty Australians have done it yet again as they have pocketed their sixth overall ICC World Cup trophy on Sunday. The Aaron Finch-led side beat their old rivals New Zealand by eight wickets with the help of all-round performance in a clinical final match of the 2021 T20 WC at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. 

The Australian skipper won the crucial toss and opted to field first while keeping the track record of the tournament in mind. The kangaroo bowlers provided their side with a great start as the Blackcaps scored just 32 runs at the end of the powerplay overs. 

However, Kane Williamson capitalised the innings well from there with his mesmerising knock of 85 runs off just 48 deliveries. Meanwhile, he also smashed 10 class fours and 3 gigantic sixes. The 31-year-old missed out on a well-deserved ton as Josh Hazlewood claimed his wicket in the 18th over while Steve Smith completed the catch.

In the end, the New Zealanders posted a great total of 172/4 on the board at the end of their quota of 20 overs. In reply, the ‘Men in Yellow’ never let their opponents come back in the game despite losing the early wicket of their captain.

Warner (53) and Marsh (77*) stitched a match-winning partnership of 92 runs to take their side home in the all-important clash. This marked the maiden title victory for the Down Under side in the shortest format of the game.
