Australia won its first T20 World Cup title. Defeated New Zealand by 8 wickets.
Australia won the trophy for the first time by defeating New Zealand by eight wickets in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup. Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bowl first. New Zealand's team scored 172 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs with the help of 85 runs from 48 balls by Kane Williamson. The Australian team won the trophy by achieving this target for the loss of 2 wickets in 18.5 overs. Mitchell Marsh, who was the player of the match for Australia and David Warner, who was the player of the series, scored half-centuries.
Electing to bat after losing the toss, New Zealand did not have a good start. New Zealand got the first blow on a total of 28 runs in which Daryl Mitchell, the hero of the previous match, was dismissed after scoring 11 runs. After this, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and opener batsman Martin Guptill, who came to bat, started moving the innings slowly. New Zealand got the second blow in the form of Martin Guptill on the score of 76 runs. Martin Guptill was dismissed for 28 runs in 35 balls. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson batted in a swashbuckling manner. Kane Williamson added 22 runs with the help of 4 fours and 1 six in one over of Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc, who came to bowl the 16th over. And one turn it seemed that the New Zealand team would comfortably reach the score of 180- 190 runs.
But Australia's fast bowler Josh Hazlewood, who came to bowl 18 overs, broke New Zealand's hopes by dismissing Glenn Phillips and Kane Williamson in the same over. New Zealand captain Williamson scored 85 runs in 48 balls. During his innings, he hit 10 fours and three sixes. Jimmy Neesham scored 13 runs in 7 balls. Due to the fall of two wickets in the same over, New Zealand's team could not score much runs in the last over. And thus New Zealand reached a respectable score of 172 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs.
The most successful bowler for Australia was Josh Hazlewood, who achieved three successes for 16 runs in 4 overs. Australia's spin bowler Adam Zampa also achieved a breakthrough for 26 runs in 4 overs. Australia's main fast bowler Mitchell Starc was targeted by the New Zealand batsmen and scored 60 runs in his four overs.
Won the final match by 8 wickets.
Chasing the target of 172 runs given by New Zealand in the final match of the T20 World Cup, Australia did not have a good start and Australian captain Aaron Finch was dismissed after scoring just 5 runs. After this, Mitchell Marsh and David Warner, who came to bat after this, together not only carried forward the Australia innings but also laid the foundation of victory. Both these batsmen batted in a quick manner. Australia got the second blow in the form of Warner in 13 overs. David Warner was dismissed for 55 runs in 38 balls. He hit 4 fours and three sixes in his brilliant innings.
Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh did not let a single wicket fall after the dismissal of David Warner and gave their team a resounding victory. Mitchell Marsh scored 77 runs in 50 balls, which included 6 fours and 4 sixes, while Glenn Maxwell scored 28 runs in 18 balls which included four fours and a six. This is Australia's first T20 World Cup trophy.
The toss was again an important factor.
The toss is the most important factor in the UAE as the team that wins the toss first decides to bowl as the dew falls there during the night and due to this it becomes difficult to bowl. Here the Australian captain won the toss and elected to bowl first after winning the toss. As the match progresses and an innings ends, the dew starts falling and the team that bowls later has to bear the loss. If the New Zealand team had won the toss earlier today, they too would have decided to bowl first and maybe today New Zealand would have won the match along with the toss and ended their 40-year drought. That's why we can say that winning the toss is a more important factor for any team than bowling and batting.
Australia was the runner-up of the 2010 T20 World Cup.
This is Australia's first T20 World Cup trophy. Earlier, Australia had once reached the final of the 2010 T20 World Cup. Where he competed with the England team.

The target of 148 runs given by Australia was achieved by the England team by losing 3 wickets in 17 overs.
There was also defeat in the final matches of the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups.
The New Zealand team had earlier reached the ODI World Cup finals of 2015 and 2019 where they had a chance to win the World Cup but had to face defeat in both these matches. Australia won the World Cup by defeating New Zealand by 9 wickets in the final of 2015. At the same time, he had to face defeat at the hands of England in the controversial final of 2019. New Zealand's team was not defeated in this match, but was declared runner-up due to the extravagant rules made by the ICC.
In the final match played today, everyone expected that New Zealand would end their 40-year drought and win the title, but the Australian team broke their dream by defeating them by 8 wickets. New Zealand has not been able to win a single World Cup trophy in ODIs or T20s so far. New Zealand have only one trophy which they won in 2021 World Test Championship by defeating India.
