In the final held in Dubai, New Zealand batted first and scored 172 for 4 wickets. Captain Kane Williamson scored 85 runs in 48 balls for New Zealand. Australia won by 8 wickets from 7 balls. David Warner, who batted brilliantly throughout the tournament, also played a crucial innings of 53 runs in the final. He was adjudged the Player of the Tournament. Adam Zampa should have got this honor.
Finch said in the post match presentation ceremony that Warner was considered finished before the tournament. It was like ‘teasing the bear’. For Warner, it was a question of credibility and he batted brilliantly in the T20 World Cup, telling that he still has a lot of cricket left in him. Adam Zampa also bowled brilliantly. For me, Zampa is the player of the tournament. He controlled most of the matches with his bowling, taking wickets at crucial times. These are two such reasons, due to which he deserves the player of the tournament. For us, he proved to be a super player.
