would go all the way, but a superb spell with the bat saw australia become champions of the format for the first time. michael redford was watching. after four weeks and 44 matches, it was time for fireworks one last time. but who could handle the heat in dubai? australia found their spark quickly and soon had the edge. new zealand, stuttering and scrapping for every run. they needed a helping hand. kane williamson, dropped and a flurry of shots followed, so did a flurry of boundaries. the captain's innings guiding his side to 172. which seemed a daunting target. not when david warner is in the mood. a stunning performance from australia's talisman. 50 for him in a partnership of 92 with marsh. australia reaching their target with

an over to spare, a performance filled with quality control and dominance and one that crowned them t20 world champions for the very first time. so a stunning eight wicket win for australia. carlos brathwaite — the man who took west indies to their triumph back in 2016, defeating england in the final. was commentating on the match for test match special. he told me bravery paid off for the aussies today. i don't think many people outside of the dressing room could believe australia could go all the way. it galvanised them in a way which i have seen similarities to our 2016 victory. we weren't given a prayer but in our dress room we had a belief and you could see the belief in the australian dressing room. when they were out in the middle of the park, you could see the intent that mitch marsh and david warner had today. it is the australian way to be brave, to be bold and they took it head—on today and that is why they came out on top. it took it head-on today and that is why they came out on top. it was a tou~h why they came out on top. it was a

but the fijians struck back after the break with a second score for waisea naya—calevu. wales were seven points adrift and needed something special. first, ryan elias claimed a second try. and then two more followed, one from alex cuthbert, and then this incredible kick and chase from the super—fast louis rees—zammit, and wales had the win. they face australia next weekend. and france won the second of their autumn internationals. with victory over georgia. 111—15 they won today — damian penaud and peato mauvako with two tries each. next weekend — the french take on new zealand. lewis hamilton has pulled off a remarkable comeback to win the sao paulo grand prix. he started tenth on the grid in brazil while max verstappen roared past valtteri bottas to take the lead. hamilton

she had her hands on the ball only for simone magill to poke at home, a mistake costing united the win as both teams settled for a draw. city started the season poorly and the start of this game was indicative of that form. less than two minutes and disaster struck asjesse fleming was gifted the ball and she wasn't going to miss from there. city's poor defending became a theme, chelsea eventually scoring four. they are one point behind leaders arsenal and city are languishing towards the bottom of the table. so confirmation of those results then — and also, a derby day win for aston villa, who beat birmingham city 1—0. anita asante's goal the difference there. brighton beat leicester by the same margin. and reading came from two goals down, to finish level 2—2 with west ham. 19—year—old emma harries with a stoppage time equaliser for them. england need just a point from their world cup qualifier in san marino tomorrow to reach qatar 2022. crystal palace midfielder,
