Australia got over the finish line in rousing fashion to clinch their first-ever Men’s T20I World Cup, scripting a turnaround of biblical proportions. Coming into the World Cup, Australia had lost their last five T20I series and looked far from favorites. But having already staged a coup by getting to the final, Australia rode on sublime efforts from David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Josh Hazlewood as they crushed New Zealand to lift the silverware. With the benefit of the 173-run target in sight, and a hang of the pitch, Australia were ruthless right through the chase to bring home the elusive trophy.
