Mitchell Marsh produced the defining innings in the chase as Australia cantered to the win.
Australia may not have been many people's favourites to break their T20 WC duck in men's cricket. They slipped to series defeats in West Indies and Bangladesh in the build-up to the tournament where many of their big-name players sat out. But once at the World Cup, they worked themselves into rhythm steadily, and despite a heavy defeat to England, did enough to qualify out of a tough group. Then came the big semifinal against favourites Pakistan. Once they hurdled that, they put on their big-game boots once more against neighbours New Zealand, romping home to the title in Dubai. The Twitter world doffed their hats to the champions.

Daniel Cherny 📰 @DanielCherny So despite being thrashed when undermanned in the Windies and Bangladesh, getting very little all tournament from the greatest cricketer of the generation, and having their pace spearhead hammered in the final, Australia storm to their first men's T20 crown. Never down for long. 05:22 PM • Nov 11, 2021

Bharat Sundaresan @beastieboy07 Those 4-1 series defeats in the Caribbean and Bangladesh look so worth it for Australia now, considering they led to the discovery of Mitchell Marsh at No 3 & subsequently their maiden #T20WorldCup win 06:23 PM • Nov 11, 2021

Ajith Ramamurthy @Ajith_tweets Safe to say he won't stay back in his hotel room during #IPL2022. David Warner, take a bow. #T20WorldCup #PlayerOfTheTournanment 06:03 PM • Nov 11, 2021
Vithushan Ehantharajah @Vitu_E Chuffed for Mitchell Marsh. Remember this from the 2019 Ashes when @beastieboy07 asked him about how he's viewed back in Australia: “Yeah, most of Australia hate me.” Probably not anymore, Mitch #T20WorldCup 05:25 PM • Nov 11, 2021
