Australia lifted their first T20 World Cup trophy with a commanding eight-wicket win over New Zealand in the title clash which was rendered one-sided by Mitchell Marsh’s blistering 77-run knock, in Dubai on Sunday.

Skipper Kane Williamson top-scored for the Black Caps with his 85-run knock while opener Martin Guptill contributed 28 runs after Australia asked them to bat first.

Opener David Warner’s 38-ball 53 and Marsh’s 50-ball unbeaten 77 meant Australia overhauled the target with consummate ease in 18.5 overs.
