England vs. Pakistan T20 World Cup Final

Pakistan was down and out after losing their 2nd game in a row against Zimbabwe by 1 run. However, the Netherlands took an upset win against South Africa to open the door for Pakistan; and here they are.

The Men in Green performed a dominating performance against New Zealand in the semi-finals, with both bat and ball, to reach the final. “The Unpredictable” Pakistan reached the final for the first time in 14 years.

New Zealand collected a total of 152-4. Pakistan’s openers, Babar and Rizwan, stepped up for the big game to make a 105-run partnership. Babar’s 53 and Rizawan’s 57 took Pakistan to the target comfortably.

On the other hand, England took down India in the 2nd semi-final. The skipper Jos Buttler and Alex Hales made a statement to chase down India’s 168-6 without losing any wickets. Buttler’s 80 from 49 and Alex Hales’ 86 from 47 left India heartbroken.

Everything is set for a mouth-watering final between England and Pakistan. Pakistan’s openers are among the runs and bowlers with the best ER in the tournament. England’s openers made the game look easy against India. Let’s roll.

However, there’s a 90% possibility of rain in the forecast at the game’s starting time. We all know that Melbourne’s weather is as unpredictable as Pakistan’s. Nonetheless, we have a reserved day for the final.

England is 18-9 up against Pakistan in the T20 format. The two sides went head-to-head twice in the T20 World Cup, with England winning both; the most recent one was in 2010.
