Australia won the toss in the final against New Zealand and opted to bowl first. Kane Williamson played a sensational knock of 85 runs against a star-studded Australia bowling line-up and took them for cleaners. New Zealand scored 172/4 in 20 overs.
Australian opener David Warner walked out with all guns blazing and scored a quickfire half-century. Aaron Finch got out cheaply before the man of the final Mitchell Marsh walked out in the middle. He scored a flamboyant fifty and remained unbeaten on 77 to take Australia over the line with eights wickets in hand and seven balls to spare.
Warner was named man of the tournament for scoring 289 runs in seven games. Adam Zampa also played well throughout the tournament as he bagged 13 wickets in seven matches.
Australian head coach Justin Langer praised his team’s effort after a comprehensive victory in the final.
“Everyone that wins a World Cup says it’s hard to process, it’s hard to put in words, but this is such a wonderful group of people. Every coach and every captain says the same but we have got some amazing cricketers here,” Langer said after the final.
