Aus vs NZ in T20 World Cup Final 2021: Australia and New Zealand will face each other in the Final of the T20 World Cup at 7.30 pm today. All eyes will be on the Australian batsman David Warner in the match at the Dubai International Stadium.
Warner is in a superb form in this World Cup. He has scored runs in almost every match for his team and is Australia’s leading run-scorer in the tournament. Aussies will rely on Warner for giving them a good start in the final. Most importantly, the star batsman might attain a big record by scoring just 30 runs in tonight’s match.
Warner has so far scored 236 runs in the T20 World Cup. If he scores 30 runs in the final vs NZ, he will score most runs by an Australian in a single edition of a T20 World Cup. Currently, ex-Aussie batter Matthew Hayden, who scored 265 runs in the 2007 T20 World Cup, holds this record. Second on the list is Shane Watson who has scored 249 runs in the 2012 T20 World Cup.
Warner has a good chance to overtake former Australian players Hayden and Watson in the final. No Australian batsman has crossed 150 runs in this World Cup except him. After Warner, skipper Aaron Finch has scored a total of 130 runs in the last 6 matches for Australia.
Another record which can be broken by David Warner: Today’s match will be played at Dubai international stadium. David Warner has hit 14 sixes so far and is just one six behind Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi. Shahid has hit 15 sixes on this ground. Warner needs to hit just two sixes in this World Cup final to surpass Afridi’s six-hitting record in Dubai.
