We, the Daily Sun family, warmly congratulate Australia on their clinching the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title in the highly contested final against powerful New Zealand on Sunday. The Aussies came out victorious over the Kiwis, chasing a challenging target 173. The Australian cricketers defeated the other finalist by eight wickets and reached the goal with seven balls to spare. It was solely their hard work that powered them home. Australian cricketers deserve praise for their maiden victory in the shortest version of the gentlemen’s game.
Australia is a cricket superpower. The Aussies have always been consistent in their performance and have already the records of bagging five ODI World Cup titles. But, even then, they had to wait for long 11 years for the championship in the T20 world cup. Before this, the best for Australia in Twenty20 was their runner-up position in 2010.
The history of Tigers’ own cricket performances is rich in instances where they scored better after a relatively dull spell. They must not forget that they have the shining records of victories against powerful teams. What is obligatory for our cricket warriors is to draw lessons from failure and chalk out strategies to turn failure into success. They need to work hard and raise their skills to higher level. They must try to remain consistent in their performance.
