Twitter erupts as Australia wins their first T20 World Cup

The Australian team managed to defeat New Zealand comprehensively in the final of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Courtesy of this resounding victory, Australia bagged their maiden T20 World Cup. Overall it is their sixth World Cup across formats.

Chasing a decent target of 173, Australia got off to a relatively careful start. Trent Boult (2/18) bowled wonderfully and dismissed opposition skipper Aaron Finch to give New Zealand a good start.

However, Mitchell Marsh (77*) and David Warner (53) began their carnage from that moment and took Australia to a commanding position.

Trent Boult castled out David Warner during the finishing stages. However, Glenn Maxwell (28*) played a blazing cameo in the company of Marsh to steer Australia past the finishing line.

The high voltage action in the final entertained the fans. They took to Twitter to applaud Australia for putting on such a power-packed performance in a crunch game. They were impressed by David Warner's determination and Mitchell Marsh's ultra-aggressive intent in the chase. Many cricketers also joined in with fans to congratulate Australia for winning their first T20 World Cup.

#Australia just too powerful. What a player Mitch Marsh has become. Hopefully his body becomes a partner in his future because he is too good to be playing as little he has. Brilliant today
Zampa's wicket of Guptill was the moment of the match. It was a good match up for New Zealand, had to take him on but wasn't to be. This lead to New Zealand being 20 runs short. #NZvsAUS #AusVsNZ #T20WorldCupFinal
Only 3 days old this tweet! I’m absolutely buzzing for you brother! Seriously proud of you! 💙…
Chuffed for Mitchell Marsh. Remember this from the 2019 Ashes when @beastieboy07 asked him about how he's viewed back in Australia: "Yeah, most of Australia hate me." Probably not anymore, Mitch #T20WorldCup

Just wanted to put on a great spectacle for our supporters: David Warner

Swashbuckling opener David Warner opened up about how the Australian team wanted to put on a great spectacle for all their supporters through their performances.

Many critics questioned Warner's form heavily coming into the tournament. However, Warner gave a thunderous response to all those critics with his player of the series performance. He played a starring role in Australia's journey to winning their maiden T20 World Cup.

Speaking at the post-match presentation after victory in the final, David Warner reflected on his performances in the tournament and said:

"I always felt really well in the middle. I did not get much time in the middle during two practice matches before the World Cup. But for me, it was about going back to basics. I practiced on hard, synthetic wickets and tried to hit some balls there to get back into the groove. This win is definitely up there with the one in 2015. Being part of the World Cup final against England a decade ago definitely hurt me."

He also praised Australia's support staff and fans. He added:

"These guys are a great bunch of guys. We have great support staff, great team, great support back home. Just wanted to put on a great spectacle for everyone who backed us."

New Zealand suffered yet another heartbreaking defeat in the final in a World Cup. It was their third successive loss as Australia and England defeated them in the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cup finals.
