Australia were crowned new T20 champions after beating New Zealand in the final by 8 wickets in Dubai.
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.
Tremendous final, some terrific batting! Williamson played one of the all-time classics, but Warner and Marsh were just unstoppable! Congratulations to Australia on their maiden triumph, New Zealand have nothing to be ashamed of. #T20WorldCup— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) November 14, 2021

#Aus lost Finch and Marsh made the very next over into a big one. Lost Warner and the same treatment meted out in the following over. The ability to counterattack in knockouts is special. Well played, #Aus Zampa and Hazlewood were special throughout #T20WorldCupFinal— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) November 14, 2021

Marcus Stoinis: This group of boys, we actually love each other. It’s beautiful – this team. I can’t wait to play with this team. I am so proud of them. You won’t find bigger supporters of Mitch Marsh than here and probably his family. We are so happy for him.
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.
Justin Langer: Everyone that wins a World Cup says it’s hard to process, it’s hard to put in words, but this is such a wonderful group of people. Every coach and every captain says the same but we have got some amazing cricketers here. We haven’t had a chance to play together for different reasons for the last 12 months. When we all got back together, it was almost like a reunion. There are so many close relationships there, a very special moment for everyone. We knew when we came together how much talent we had. There’s enormous talent in the team. When we were in WI and Bangladesh, there was a few missing pieces, Mitch Marsh took one of those pieces and he’s been brilliant. We also embraced fun. In these situations, when everyone’s talking about bubble, these guys have had so much fun on and off the ground. In this form of game, you actually it’s important to have fun and enjoy, the guys have done that. I think that was a really important part of the success here. Zamps puts a smile on my face everytime because he’s a little bit different and he’s a little bit hippie but he’s so competitive, he’s been so good in this form of the game. We see leg-spinners having an impact around the world and he’s doing that for Australia. Josh Hazlewood – he didn;t play the last one-day WC because he had some back issues. He’s been sublime here, it’s been a great team effort.
