At the age of 50, Australian David Warner reached a major milestone in his eight-wicket win over New Zealand in the final of the T20 World Cup in Dubai on Sunday.
Australian hitter David Warner was his team's top scorer at the T20 World Cup on Sunday. This achievement succeeded the opening game against New Zealand in the final of the T20 World Cup on Sunday evening in the Dubai International Stadium. Warner played a crucial 53-point blow against New Zealand, bringing his T20 World Cup total to 289 points in 2021. His shot helped Australia beat New Zealand by eight wickets as they comfortably pursued the Black Caps' 173-point goal to win their first title. Warner was also voted Player of the Tournament.

Matthew Hayden previously held this position for 265 runs at the 2007 T20 World Cup, followed by Shane Watson for 249 runs at the 2012 T20 World Cup. David Warner was also the second highest run goal of the T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistani skipper Babar Azam is the leading run scorer with 303 runs.

Earlier Sunday, Kane Williamson played a brilliant innings of 85 runs when New Zealand scored 172/4. Australia had decided to bowl first after winning the throw on Sunday. New Zealand got off to a slow start and struggled to speed up its innings before Williamson took control of things. Dropped with a single score of 21, the Kiwi skipper let go of the Australian bowlers for a masterful stroke of 85.

Despite Warner and Mitchell Marsh chasing a large 173 total and losing skipper Aaron Finch early on, Warner and Mitchell Marsh formed a big partnership for the second wicket to take the game away from New Zealand. Both Warner and Marsh hit the fifties to lead the Australians to a comfortable win.
