The all-important final match between Australia and New Zealand is currently underway at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Meanwhile, NZ speedster Trent Boult has claimed the all-important wicket of the Aussie opening batter David Warner.
The incident took place on the second delivery of the 13th over during the second innings on Sunday. The left-arm quick bowled a perfect full delivery, crashing into the stumps which the batter completely missed while going for slog shot. Hence, the Kiwis got a crucial breakthrough as Warner was batting exceptionally well at 58 runs.

NZ post massive 172-runs total, Williamson shines
Australia skipper Aaron Finch won the crucial toss (which has turned out to be a vital cog in the ongoing tournament) and opted to field first. 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, the batting team’s captain 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.
