ICC T20: Warner powers Aussies to title win



Williamson’s outstanding 85 runs went in vain as Australia won yet another ICC trophy.

Sadly, New Zealand lost their 2nd straight limited-overs world cup.

The luck was with Aaron Finch once again as Australia won the toss and without any doubt, they choose to bowl first.

New Zealand started slowly and they lost D. Mitchell in the 4th over.

Guptill played a very slow inning as he scored just 28 runs off 35 balls including 3 fours.

He is known for his hard-hitting in this format but today he played an innings that was not of Guptill’s calibre.

New Zealand scored just 57 runs in the first 10 overs.

Kane Williamson’s superb knock

The cool and calm Kane Williamson is  the star with the bat for the Black Caps.

Kane Williamson played a brilliant inning of 85 runs off just 48 balls including 10 fours and 3 sixes.

New Zealand scored 172 runs because of his outstanding inning.

None of the other New Zealand batters was able to cross 30 runs.

Josh Hazelwood picked up 3 major wickets and conceded just 16 runs in his spell of 4 overs. 

While Kane Williamson smashed 85 runs, the rest of the New Zealand batters scored 78 runs off 73 balls.

Warner and Marsh match-winning stand

Australia lost their skipper Aaron Finch very early in their innings.

But again it was Warner who stood up and scored another brilliant half-century.

His stand with Marsh was the reason for Australia’s victory in this Final.

When things were looking very easy for Australia, Trent Boult bowled out the dangerous Warner and ended the brilliant 92 runs stand between Warner and Marsh.

Warner scored 53 runs off 38 balls.

He smashed 3 sixes and 4 fours.

Before the tournament, his selection in the team was criticised due to his poor form in the IPL.

Yet, he proved everybody to that form is temporary but the class of a match-winner player like him is permanent. 

Mitchell Marsh played a brilliant knock in the final.

He is the leading run-scorer for Australia in the year 2021 as he has scored over 600+ runs in this year so far.

After Warner’s dismissal, Marsh continued his power show and he remained unbeaten on 77 runs off just 50 balls.

He smashed 6 fours and 4 brilliant sixes

Australia: The World T20 Champions 

Australia chased down the total in 18.5 overs with still eight wickets in hand.

Maxwell (28 off 18) and Marsh (77 off 50) remained not out in the end.

Australia has now finally won a T20 World Cup.

This was the first time the 5-time ODI World Cup winners lifted the T20 World Cup.

The wait for New Zealand continues 

New Zealand on the other  hand failed to win the final of a limited-over world cup again.

They were the runners-up of the 2019 ODI world cup and now they are the runners-up of the 2021 T20 world cup.

The wait to win a limited-over world cup continues for New Zealand. 


New Zealand            20 overs           172-4

 Williamson  85 (48)                 Hazelwood     3-16

 Guptill         28 (35)                  Zampa             1-26

Australia                         18.5 overs     173-2

Marsh        77*(50)                Boult             2-18

Warner      53 (38)

RCB women overcame UP Warriorz by 23 runs to clinch their third win of the season. The home side outperformed Warriorz in all the facets of the game and emerged victorious. A collective team effort, particularly with the bat, helped RCB women to beat Warriorz for the second time in the season. They now have three wins in their five matches in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy won the toss and opted to field first. Given how things have panned out in the league so far, it needed a great batting performance from RCB to challenge the chasing side. The home side did exactly that. They were full of intent which was lacking in the last few games. Right from the start, S Meghana and Smriti Mandhana smashed the bowlers.

It was the night of the RCB skipper. The Southpaw scored 80(50) in her stay. S Meghana perished after a valuable 28(21). Ellyse Perry batted well and registered her first fifty of the WPL 2024. She was aided well towards the end by Richa Ghosh whose 21(10) propelled RCB to a score of 198 on the board. It was the highest team total in the WPL 2024.

Alyssa Healy’s efforts go in vain

Chasing the daunting total, UP Warriorz were off to a flier. The opening duo of Healy and Kiran Navgire gave a fiery start to the visiting side. When the two were batting in the PP overs, it seemed like the Warriorz could pull off an insane chase. However, Sophie Devine brought RCB back into the game with crucial wickets. At Bengaluru, the home crowd was literally behind the RCB women.

It helped the home side to stay calm and do their job with ease. Sophie Molineux and Asha Sobhana were the pick of the bowlers, who claimed 2/29 each in their spell of four overs. While Healy scored a fifty and Deepti tried her best in the death overs, ten daunting targets could not be chased down. Despite the early hiccups, RCB managed to restrict UP Warriorz to a score of 175 and won by 23 runs.

RCB teammates laugh, Ellyse Perry in disbelief

Praveen Kumar addresses Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer’s negligence of taking part in Ranji Trophy




Praveen Kumar

Praveen Kumar has given his opinion on the preferences of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer in recent times. The duo did not take part in the Ranji Trophy matches for their respective teams despite being fit. It did not go well with the Indian Cricket Board which landed the duo without a ventral contract which was announced a few days back.

Praveen Kumar has reacted to the issue recently. The former India pacer claimed that he has been of an opinion on the issue for a long time. Praveen felt that one should definitely earn money but not at the cost of neglecting to play for domestic and national teams. The right-arm pacer felt that players today are having a certain mentality which is not good.

The former pacer claimed that the players have a mindset that they can rest for a month before taking part in the IPL, thereby bypassing playing for their national team or the domestic teams. Praveen felt that the players could not resist letting go of money which they could earn by taking part in the IPL and other T20 leagues (For foreign players).

‘Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun’ – Praveen Kumar

“This thing is now firmly in the mind of players. Mai ek mahine pehle rest kar lunga, fir IPL khel lunga. Ye mentally hota hai, ki mai itne paise kaise chodun,” said Praveen in the interview. He claimed that youngsters these days are spoilt and are behind money. The former RCB pacer felt that it is not fair on the part of the young players to neglect the country over the IPL.

Kumar felt that a player needs to maintain a balance between playing for the IPL team and for the country. He felt that money is an important factor, but not at the cost of playing for the national team. “But this is not fair at all. A player needs to balance things. Money is important, but this (giving franchise cricket the priority) is wrong,” said the former Indian bowler in the interview.
