Yesterday, Pakistan faced defeat at the hands of the English batters in the final of the T20 World Cup.
England is now the first team to have both the 50-over and the 20-over World Cups with them. Ben Stokes played a great knock of 52 from 48 balls to help the Three Lions win the cup for the second time.
Pakistan could only post a target of 137 on the board as they were playing on a dual-paced pitch.
Former Pakistan pacer, Shoaib Akhtar posted an emoji of heartbreak after Pakistan lost in the final.
To this tweet, India’s Mohammad Shami responded by saying,
Sorry brother, it’s call karma.
To this, Akhtar retweeted Indian commentator, Harsha Bhogle’s tweet where the latter had praised Pakistan’s pace battery.
And this what you call sensible tweet.
In the second innings, Pakistan fought valiantly with the ball to try and restrict England from scoring runs.
But, the target being very small, England had absolutely no trouble chasing it down as they had a batting-heavy unit for this T20 World Cup.
Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah became very dangerous to bat to.
However, an injury to Afridi proved costly for Pakistan as suddenly they were hit for runs by the English batters.
England chased down the target in just 19 overs to win the T20 World Cup a second time.
