Match Preview

PAK vs ENG: After a month of excitement, uncertainty, disappointment, surprises, and thrill, the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022 is finally coming to its last leg. The finals of the tournament will be played between Pakistan and England. MCG will host this paramount game on Sunday, 13th November 2022.

Absolutely nobody even Pakistan does not know how they got here. Standing on the brink of elimination, the team magically got a chance at redemption. And they made sure not to let it slip, and grabbed it with both hands. Pakistan surprised New Zealand in the semi-finals with the ball. They managed to keep the big guns quiet and kept building pressure. At one point, 152 appeared to be par. But the openers under fire, Babar and Rizwan, chose this game to regain their lost form. The duo registered a partnership of 100 runs and booked their tickets for Melbourne.

Meanwhile, England completely crushed India with the bat in the chase. Hardik Pandya’s blistering innings took India to a defendable target of 168. However, the English openers came with the intent to kill it. They attacked Indian bowlers from ball one and the game was sealed in the powerplay itself. Moreover, India lost all spirits after the powerplay assault, and chaos took over. Rohit tried multiple plans, but none worked against the berserk opening duo of Buttler and Hales. The duo took their team home without losing even a single wicket. England defeated India by 10 wickets.
