New Zealand vs Australia Scorecard
The 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup was the seventh ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament, with the matches played in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from 17 October to 14 November 2021. The West Indies were the defending champions but were eventually eliminated in the Super 12 stage.
Initially, the occasion was booked to be held in Australia from 18 October to 15 November 2020, yet in July 2020, the International Cricket Council (ICC) affirmed that this competition had been deferred, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In August 2020, the ICC affirmed that India would have the 2021 competition as arranged, with Australia being named as the host for the succeeding 2022 competition. In any case, in June 2021, the ICC reported that the competition had been moved to the United Arab Emirates because of developing worries over the COVID-19 pandemic circumstance in India, and a potential third flood of the pandemic in the country because of the feelings of dread of Delta variation. The competition started on 17 October 2021, with the competition’s last occurring on 14 November 2021. The fundamental rounds of the competition were played in the UAE and Oman.
New Zealand turned into the primary group to arrive at the last after they beat England by five wickets in the semi-finals. It was whenever New Zealand first had equipped for a T20 World Cup last. They were participated in the last by Australia, who beat Pakistan by five wickets in the second semi-last. It was the second time that Australia had equipped for the last of the T20 World Cup, in the wake of arriving at the last of the 2010 competition. In the last, Australia beat New Zealand by eight wickets to win their first T20 World Cup. Mitchell Marsh was named the Player of the Match, with David Warner being named the Player of the Tournament.

T20 World Cup Schedule and broadcasting List
With a total of 45 matches, the T20 World Cup was composed of two rounds. Round 1 had twelve matches played between eight teams (Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Namibia, Oman, and Papua New Guinea), with the top four teams progressing to the Super 12s. The Super 12s consisted of 30 matches between the four teams from Round 1 and the top eight ranked T20I teams. Originally, if Sri Lanka or Bangladesh qualified from their first-round groups, they would have retained their respective seedings of A1 or B1 for the Super 12s. However, the ICC later changed this rule, after Scotland topped Group B and progressed as B1. Those teams were then split into two groups of six each. This was then followed by the two semi-finals and then the final. On 16 July 2021, the ICC confirmed the groups for the tournament, which were decided on the rankings of the teams as of 20 March 2021. On 17 August 2021, the ICC confirmed the final fixtures for the tournament including the first round and super 12 matches.
The ICC named all of the official broadcasters for the tournament on its website, including details on television coverage, digital content for in-match clips and highlights, and audio listings. The official anthem of the tournament was released on 14 October 2021, by Sony Music India.
