New Zealand experienced a scintillating run in the 2021 T20 World Cup
The New Zealand side experienced a superb run in the 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup. Kane Williamson and his men won 4 out of their 5 matches in the Super 12 stages of the tournament and qualified for the knockout stages.
Then, in the semi-final against England, the Kiwis chased down a stiff target of 167, with Daryl Mitchell spearheading the run chase by scoring a sensational 72* off 47 deliveries. However, the Black Caps slipped in their final hurdle and lost to Australia in the final.
In the final of the 2021 T20 World Cup, New Zealand batted first and posted a good total of 172/4 in their 20-over quota, with their skipper Kane Williamson hammering the Aussie bowlers all around the park. Williamson scored a 48-ball 85 for his side.
But then, Australia kept their cool in the run chase and won the match with 8 wickets in hand. David Warner and Mitchell Marsh scored superb half-centuries to help the ‘Men in Yellow’ to their first-ever T20 World Cup title.
