Set a mammoth 244 to win, Australia pulled off the highest run chase in a T20 worldwide as Warner (59 off 24 balls) and D'Arcy Short (76 off 44) demolished New Zealand's bowlers.
In today's T-20 final, New Zealand scored 150 for nine in stipulated 20 overs after electing to bat first.
David Warner and D'Arcy Short were not in the mood for nuance, taking Australia to 55-0 after six overs, which is where the score remained until the first batch of rain had cleared.
The last time, New Zealand defeated Australia in the final of an global cricket tournament was way back in the year 1981.
Five wins from as many matches says just that.
No changes anticipated to the New Zealand side that lost by two runs in their final group game against England.
Leading into this series, there was doom and gloom hanging over the Australian limited overs set-up, with the ODI side having just been pummelled 4-1 at home by England and the T20 side ranked a lowly seventh in the world.
"It's provided some unbelievable moments for New Zealand cricket and the teams that we've been involved in, and when you throw that into the mix, it does make it enjoyable".
They raced to 48 without loss but Australian captain David Warner held his nerve and backed his attack, constantly switching bowlers so the batters could not settle.
"Every game's different. It's a great cricketing venue". They took three wickets for 12 in 16 balls, but dislodging the visitors' momentum was beyond their capability.
A 38-run ninth-wicket partnership from 36 balls offered some solace as Sodhi provided Taylor with stability. Martin Guptill, 2. Colin Munro, 3.
"It was definitely a lot slower than the wicket the other day, but 150 was never going to be enough - if we could've scraped to 160, 165 and got some early wickets, we (would've given) ourselves a sniff", the 33-year-old Taylor said. Agar, who had walked in at No.3 instead of Lynn did not long last but Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch got Australia close to the target.
"We always try to coach the guys at training to start well with your first six [deliveries], and we try to make it game-scenarios as much as we can in the nets where they try to execute their best ball".
