Pak vs Eng: Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed by Sam Curran in the final game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and was sent back to the pavilion (MCG).
England captain Jos Buttler batted first, and Rizwan scored 15 runs off 14 balls and hit a six before being removed in the fifth over.
The championship game of the multi-nation tournament will feature the same lineups for both teams.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam stated that the team is attempting to retain the momentum gained after winning four consecutive games while remaining confident after winning the toss.
Babar remarked that even if he had lost the toss, he would have decided to bowl first.
We’ll try to score runs and put pressure on [England]. The team is playing exceptionally well, He added.
Melbourne’s weather has improved since it posed a significant threat to the tournament’s title match. The likelihood of rain before the highly anticipated match has fallen from 95% to 46%.
A game now requires a minimum of 10 overs per side, up from five in the group stages. If the game begins but is not completed on Sunday, it will resume on Monday.
Many parallels exist between the 1992 World Cup and this year’s final, which takes place 30 years after Imran Khan’s Pakistan upset England to win the 50-over World Cup, the country’s first white-ball trophy.
This may persuade Babar’s group to assume that winning the trophy is destined for them.
Babar highlighted the parallels between the 1992 final and the present.
It is an honor for me to captain this team, especially on such a wide field, and we will work hard to win the trophy.
