Dubai: T20 World Cup 2021-winning Australia captain Aaron Finch has said that the ‘toss’ was one of the main reasons for his team’s success throughout the tournament, but his team also played excellent and aggressive cricket. In fact, Australia won all the matches won during this tournament by bowling first. Finch had won the toss in six out of seven matches of this World Cup.
Finch said after the match, “To be honest, the role of the toss was very important, although we were always prepared that in some match we may lose the toss and we may have to bat first. Like every other match, this match also had a slight dew, but the dew had a role to play and the slow bowlers were finding it difficult. ,
“The way we bowled with the new ball throughout the tournament was very important. In the final also we allowed New Zealand to score only 57 runs in the first 10 overs. The dew fell more in this match than in the entire tournament and we benefited from that as well. You also need luck in T20 cricket. We won the toss in six out of seven matches, which had a big impact on our campaign, but also the fact that we played excellent and aggressive cricket, which put the opposition teams on the back foot. ,
The Australian captain has also praised David Warner, who scored 53 runs in 38 balls in the match. Finch said, “Warner’s aggressive batting reflects the aggressive approach of the entire Australian team. Questions were being raised about his form before the tournament, but I was sure of him. I also told coach Justin Langer that he would be one of the best players of the tournament. He is a fighter and one of the best batsmen of all time in T20 cricket. ,
It is noteworthy that this was Warner’s third consecutive 40-plus score. He scored 89 off 57 balls in the tournament’s last league match against the West Indies and 49 off 30 balls in the crucial semi-final match against Pakistan, though he maintained that the ‘Player of the Tournament’ award was won by Adam for the highest wicket-taker. Zampa should have met.
Australia kept us under pressure: Williamson
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has not blamed his bowlers for the loss in the T20 World Cup final against Australia. He said that his bowlers have bowled excellently throughout this tournament.
Williamson said after the match, “Australia played much better cricket than us today and kept us under pressure. We didn’t get wickets at regular intervals, so that didn’t put pressure on them. He gained momentum and never lost it again. ,
It is noteworthy that New Zealand’s bowling unit could not defend the target of 173 runs in the final match. Barring Trent Boult, all the bowlers seemed to have strayed from their line and length. As a result, he was severely beaten up. The Australian batsmen especially took a dig at Ish Sodhi and Tim Southee. There is no doubt that this Dubai pitch got a double bounce in the first innings.
New Zealand could only manage 32 runs during the powerplay, which is their lowest powerplay score during this tournament, although captain Williamson himself took the responsibility and scored a brilliant 85 off 48 balls to take the team’s score to 172.
The New Zealand captain said, “Given the conditions of the second innings, it cannot be called a huge score, but it was a good score nonetheless. We probably could have defended this score by pressing for the early wickets, but it was probably not our day. Australia team is very strong. He played excellent cricket throughout the World Cup, which he retained even in the finals, although we are proud of the cricket we played throughout this tournament. In the final also we played good cricket, of course it was not good enough to win the title. ,(talk)
