“To produce a performance like that in the final tells you the belief that the team had. They just kept getting better, you could see that. After that win against Pakistan, the confidence in the team would have been so high. That helped with their batting display that was spectacular,” Ajit Agarkar said.
Furthermore, Agarkar claimed that disappointing IPL campaigns. It would have made some of the Australian players. Also, including Warner is hungrier to perform in the T20 World Cup 2021.
“The fact some of them did not have a great IPL, the hunger was a little bit extra. Having gotten back with your country’s group sometimes helps. Warner just played a couple of innings in the UAE in the IPL, so you couldn’t quite say whether he was in good or bad form. From that West Indies game, Australia was a different team. Mitchell Marsh was an important selection. His hitting form was very good,” Agarkar said.
Lastly, Marsh was named player of the final. For his attacking innings, according to Daniel Vettori. Warner’s knock was equally significant. He opined that the Australian opener’s batting exploits neutralized the impact of Kane Williamson’s innings. Williamson had struck a brilliant 85 in 48 balls.
