T20 World Cup final: Marsh’s comeback good; One-sided effort by Finch toss Boss and Kane

Michelle Marshaw There was both pedigree and performance to be a match-winner. Being the son of Geoff Marsh and brother of Sean’s baby had its disadvantages, but it also had benefits. He found a long rope. You thought twice before leaving Marsh. After leading Australia to the Under-19 World Cup title in 2010, he proved that Apple Didn’t fall too far from the tree. As expected, he graduated in the senior team in 2011. Then his development stopped. Injuries played a role but Mitchell could not cement his place in the team. The old joke about him being the “third best” batsman in his family was repeated so many times that he lost his bite. For more than a decade, the Aussies waited to become at least Sean, if not Geoff. He turned 30 just last month. How can a one-time prodigy be a late bloomer? Time was running out. Mitchell saved his best for the game Australia were desperate to win. The once mighty cricketing nation showed that they weren’t slipping, they could excel in even the most famous format of the game. And for this he should have thanked Marsh III. After his game-changing hand, the joy on his face and the genuine joy of those around him showed how important the innings was to him and to Australia. Always the team team, Mitchell was until recently once again famous for being the team vlogger. He used to roam around the dressing room with his camera talking to the star cast. There was a queue in Dubai on Sunday to interview the man.

It was all yellow… again

Amidst a sea of ​​fielders dressed in black, some ‘pitch-invaders’ made their way onto the turf before the ball in yellow reached the ropes. If it was a Harry Potter movie, it would have been when Albus Dumbledore waved his hand, or wand, and replaced the red decorations depicting the dominance of the West Indies with yellow banners of the new T20 World Champions, Australia Will go Then, at the venue in Dubai, decorators don’t have to search for the colors they need. This will already happen as a short while ago Chennai Super Kings – the winners of the IPL in yellow – stormed the ground to clinch the title.

Waver, Wade and Behold, Wicket

Matthew Wade, the man who doesn’t like wicketkeeping, drops a catch from Daryl Mitchell Glen Maxwell, But an over later, he took his redemption and this time proceeded to dismiss Mitchell from Josh Hazlewood. Mitchell shapes up for a cut off Maxwell’s ball and gets an inside edge and it’s a dip and it wasn’t easy but we have seen better keepers take it. Wade’s eyes were on the ball. It is not certain how he has been off the field in the nights before games in this tournament, but by his own admission he would have been a nervous wreck when he was keeping in the Tests. Wade once said, “The night I used to stress about keeping—that night I did it for 10 years.” “I was like ‘Oh I have to lay tomorrow, I hope I don’t make this s***’. When you’re down in your squat you have a lot of stuff, hundreds of them. Your mind is ticking all the time I was completely toast by the end of the test. Luckily for him, Mitchell gave him another chance he grabbed. The nerves must have relaxed.

Unfinching success in toss 139 words

Aaron FinchToss luck should be the envy of its rivals and the pride of Australia. Winning six tosses out of seven in a tournament where the second batting has given a distinct advantage cancels out the luck factor and defies probability theory. No wonder, Australia’s white-ball captain looked happy after winning the toss in the final and his Kiwi counterpart Kane Williamson Opted for indifference. Williamson had to grapple with Finch’s luck with a pinch of salt. The Australian captain admitted that the pitch for the final was “slightly drier than the other night (semifinal)” and expected it to “skid on” (later). As a cuff, Williamson conceded that he would have opted to field as well. “Who knows about the dew, but the important thing is that we focus on that task,” he said during the toss.

hazelwood in the mist

Can’t really blame Josh Hazlewood for dropping Kane Williamson’s catch. Perhaps he was stunned that the batsman had actually hit a ball with some force. Shocked that it reached near the limit. Surprisingly, he suddenly had to get up on the field. Until then, it sounded like a slow stink of a game, rolling on a two-paced pitch. It was a slow full toss from Mitch Starc in 11 overs and Williamson was done by a change of pace but passed through his front hand and the ball went deep backward square-leg, where Hazlewood caught it. It woke Williamson, who hit two consecutive boundaries – a straight drive and a pull to bring some drama into the gloomy proceedings.

Cane or Cairns? two men, one hand 6

Was it Kane Williamson or Lance Cairns, circa 1983? Chris’s father Lance and Dennis Lillee’s one-handed six with the famous Excalibur bat are part of the folklore in New Zealand. Kane did it with a more gentle pace from Glenn Maxwell. It was floating over the leg-stump line and Williamson went for a big hee-ho and took his upper hand off the handle and threw the ball over midwicket. Just like Lance did 38 years ago. of late, Rishabh Pant Has been popular with a one-handed six. Now Ken has joined. He already had a one-handed four – that drop catch from Josh Hazlewood – and now a stunning six.

3 meters … like this or that

Aaron Finch won’t complain about the three-meter rule in DRS situations, which saved him from an lbw decision. He didn’t last long, hidden deep, but let’s get back to that lbw appeal. Already standing outside the crease, he falls further down, but misses to a no-backer Trent Boult And hit on the pad. The umpire rejected the appeal and New Zealand did not go for the DRS as it was clear that the point of impact was more than 3 metres.

In 2018, Finch was on the other side of the 3m rule and found it very strange and wanted a change in the rule. “About three metres… Pitching over the line, hitting the line, hitting the stumps – that’s weird for me. Where 3m is below the wicket, if it is still hitting the stumps and looking in line, can we change the rule. I know it’s going to sound sour at the moment because we’re on the receiving end, but it’s definitely not. We understand where the rule is now. But maybe if it’s hitting the line and if all three (pitching point, impact with pads, impact with stumps) are still red, it probably has a chance to turn. Because of this rule, his life was saved this time. But it didn’t last long as Boult saw him moving on the track and fired a short fire to take him out.

Like 80s Boomer Kelsey

Remember the Casio calculator – MG880 was it? – Since the 1980s. It used to be a silly little game on him. Looking back, they had a lot better graphics than the all new latest craze of T20 World Cup broadcasters. A graphic of batsmen running between wickets as the camera chases a fielder is sometimes shown in the sidebar on the left side of the screen. It’s so retro – not necessarily good romantic retro but boomer tech. It looks artificial and very low-tech.
