T20 World Cup, Final: Wanted To Go Out There And Have Presence, Says Mitchell Marsh

Dubai: Australian batsman Mitchell Marsh on Sunday expressed his happiness after defeating New Zealand by eight wickets in the final match of the ICC Men's Twenty20 World Cup 2021.
Mitchell Marsh and David Warner scored 77 and 53, respectively, as Australia won their first T20 World Cup title at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

In the clash, Australia chased down a target of 173, beating New Zealand by eight wickets with seven balls to spare.
"A lot of people say that but I don't have the words yet. Six weeks with this group is amazing.

The coaching staff in West Indies came to me and said that you will be batting three times for this tournament / series. He jumped at the thought. A little bit of work for the Scouts, "said Mitchell Marsh in his post-match presentation.

"I must thank everyone on the support staff for their support," he added.

In the pursuit of 173 runs, Australia got off to a bad start as the team lost their captain Aaron Finch (5) in the third over of the innings when he was sent back to the pavilion by Trent Bolt.
Mitchell Marsh joined David Warner in the middle and at the end of the power play both of them increased the team score to 43/1.

Warner favored Kiwi spinners Ash Sodhi and Mitchell Sentner, and the left-arm batsman completed his half-century in the 11th over of the innings. However, the introduction of Trent Bolt immediately turned a profit as he clean bowled Warner (53) in the 13th over, reducing Australia to 107/2.

Marsh continued his carnage and scored his half-century in the 14th over, giving Ash Sodhi 16 runs and Australia needed just 48 runs in six overs to win. In the end, Marsh and Glenn Maxwell (28 *) led Australia home by eight wickets.

Earlier, Ken Williamson played a brilliant 85-run innings in which New Zealand scored 4/172 against Australia.
