Australian skipper Aaron Finch said “This is huge. To be the first Australian team to be able to do it. So proud. We knew our backs were against the wall. We had some great individual performances, some great team performances. Can’t believe people wrote him off saying he was done (Warner). That’s when he plays his best cricket. Was almost like poking the bear. The player of the tournament for me (Zampa). Mitch Marsh – what a way to start his innings today. Wade came into this game with an injury cloud but got a job done. Stoinis did the business.”
Warner was humiliated at this venue by IPL (Indian Premier League). It was the tournament where Warner made a comeback, after not being in a good form but today he proved his worth to the entire world.
