Mitchell Marsh and David Warner plundered half-centuries as Australia won its first Twenty20 cricket World Cup with an eight-wicket victory over New Zealand in Sunday’s final.
New Zealand lost the all-important toss, was sent in to bat and posted 172-4. Marsh finished unbeaten on 77 off 50 balls. He shared a 92-run second-wicket partnership with Warner, who scored 53 off 38.
However, a couple of years ago, Mitchell Marsh had stated that most of Australia hates him after his repeated failures in international cricket.
The video of Marsh making the statement about himself went viral after his match-winning innings against New Zealand in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup.
Fans expected Marsh to rule cricket, but the all-rounder was let down by frequent injuries and poor performance across formats.
However, on Sunday, he finally justified his place after he led Australia to an emphatic win by 8 wickets in Dubai.
