David Warner and Ryan Carters managed to belt 48 runs from the last over of the final to give Australia their first Hong Kong Sixes trophy on Sunday. Pakistan were on track to defend their total of 6 for 132 in five overs and needed to limit Australia to 46 from the last eight balls delivered by Imran Nazir.

Warner (35 off 11 balls) and Carters (31 off eight) stormed the team to a two-wicket victory. "It was amazing," Warner said. "We have that Australian passion when things are against us.

"It is one of those things - we needed 46 in that last over, but it is cricket and we knew we were always a chance if we backed ourselves. I was given the opportunity to come here and lead the side as well and I am just stoked for the boys, they have done so well." Glenn Maxwell, who scored 34 off 15 in the decider, was the player of the tournament.
