Williamson brings Boult back into the attack in an effort to force a wicket or two, but Marsh hits a two and four off the first two balls. Boult has the chance of a catch on the final ball of the over but he puts it down.

Maxwell steers a precise hook for four and then slashes a wild top edge over the keeper’s head for another four. Australia are closing in on their first T20 World Cup.

Australia 125-2 (14 overs) chasing 173 to win T20 World Cup

Sodhi bowls again, and he’s hit all around the park – it’s a disastrous over. Marsh brings up his 50 with another huge six down the ground for the fastest half-century in a T20 World Cup final. Marsh then strikes a half-tracker for four. If Australia win this match he will be a big reason why. Three wides really don’t help New Zealand’s cause, and that’s an expensive over of 16 runs off Sodhi.
