Aaron Finch has claimed that, unlike many others in cricket, he projected David Warner as Player of the Tournament months before the T20 World Cup 2021. The Australian captain informed head coach Justin Langer of the same on Sunday, praising Warner as an "all-time great."

David Warner entered the event after a tumultuous IPL season in which he was dismissed as captain and dropped twice.

With increased backing from the Australian management, the southpaw rediscovered his greatest form, scoring 236 runs in six games, second-best in the championship. The contribution was critical in Australia's eight-wicket victory over New Zealand on Sunday, which gave them their first men's T20 World Cup title.

In the post-match news conference, Aaron Finch revealed that while he preferred leg-spinner Adam Zampa to win the award, he was not surprised to see David Warner win it.

The hitters' problems against leg-spin were arguably Australia's sole blemish in this near-flawless tournament victory. Aaron Finch commented later in the conference about how his squad saw the problem and worked to address it throughout the tournament.

This strategy was also successful in the end. In four wicketless overs against Aaron Finch's squad, Ish Sodhi, one of the top leg-spinners in the game, went for 40 runs. The team chased down the Black Caps' 173-run mark in 18.5 overs with David Warner's 53 off 38 and Mitchell Marsh's 77 off 50.

Aaron Finch also spoke on the importance of great connections and camaraderie among Australian players in this success. He stated that the locker room had its share of problems, but the team grew closer and stronger due to them.

An effort like this will only strengthen the camaraderie amongst the Australians, allowing them to perform even better in the T20 World Cup in their backyard next year.
