New Zealand captain Kane Williamson hits classy 85 as Australia are set 173 runs to win the T20 World Cup final with new winner of competition guaranteed in Dubai











Kane Williamson hit a brilliant half-century for New Zealand as they set Australia 173 runs to win the final of the T20 World Cup.

The pair are bidding for their first ever titles in the competition and after being put in to bat, the Kiwis posted 172 for four from their 20 overs.

That was largely thanks to their skipper Williamson, who hit his 85 off just 48 balls to propel his side up to a competitive total.

Put into bat, New Zealand struggled to get going and were 57-1 at the halfway stage of their innings before Williamson accelerated.

The right-hander, dropped on 21 near the boundary, hit three sixes and 10 fours after Australia skipper Aaron Finch had elected to field.

Australia, chasing their maiden 20-overs world title, went into the match with an unchanged side.

World test champions New Zealand replaced injured wicketkeeper Devon Conway with Tim Seifert in the only change to their team.
