Australia won by 8 wickets and won the ICC T20 World Cup 2021
Matthew Wade: It's huge. First T20 World Cup coming in, felt like a lot of people wrote us off early, but internally we spoke about how we could be the first team to achieve this for Australia. Something really, really special. More than my innings (against Pakistan), the partnership (with Stoinis) will stand out. We didn't realize we scored as many runs as we did. Today we were confident that if the boys could get off to a good start we can do this. Thankfully Mitch (Marsh), Davey and Maxi did it.
Pat Cummins: Pretty pumped. Once we go back home it will sink in. A lot of support back home, they've gotten up at 1am. It's a good thing to play some IPL here. Even Hazlewood was able to adapt quickly because of that.
Josh Hazlewood: There's always pressure, the batters come at you and we kept the powerplay to 40ish, so a good effort there. I got away towards the end. Exceptional chase from our guys. Kane is a superb players, has been for a long time, it was a classical Kane innings. He scored all around, and hurt us when we bowled poorly.
Glenn Maxwell: It was perfect, I was fresh and hitting the ball really well. It was nice to be out there to hit the winning runs. Zampa has been a superstar in this format and ODIs and I had the pleasure of watching him grow into the player he is. To watch him bring all his talent into the international stage has been a pleasure. He's also fielding well, and in the last three years as a legspinner, there haven;t been many better in the world.
Adam Zampa: I just tried to bowl to my strength, to the best of my abilities. I knew the wickets are going to be slow. I bowled in some good times, we won tosses and bowled with a dry ball. Tried to get wickets and tried to defend when needed. Lot of credit to them (supportstaff). Preparation from their side has been great. This is their win as well.
Mitchell Starc: It's not been an ideal lead up. But this is the closest the guys were and it has shown in the way we played our cricket. Different guys in different games and the closeness with the guys has taken us through. Zampa has been the best bowler by far in white ball over the last two years. We know how to bowl around him. The bowling group just know our roles a lot clearer.
