So, the time has come. The battle has begun between England and Pakistan to see who will take the trophy of the T20 World Cup 2022 at their home.
England won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first. The first inning of the final match of the T20 World Cup has started. Rizwan and Babar took the field, and Stokes opened the attack. The starting was not up to the mark for England as they had given 2 wides in the first over.
However, England got the first wicket of Rizwan in the 4th over. Sam Curran was able to dismiss the partnership of Rizwan and Babar. Rizwan was gone after 15(14).
Haris hit 4 in the last ball of the power play, and the scoreboard of Pakistan displayed 39 runs with a loss of 1 wicket. The power play was gone in the name of Sam as he took the most crucial wicket of Rizwan in the 4th over.
Haris tried to hit boundaries and chase the good run score for Pakistan but was caught out with the immediate impact of Rashid in the first ball of the 8th over. Haris was dismissed after 8(12).
Pakistan has reached 50 after the 8 overs with a loss of 2 most crucial wickets. The partnership of Babar and Shan took the Pakistan scoreboard to 68/2 after 10 overs.
Now Pakistan needs to hit some boundaries to make a good run score against England. Babar tried to stay on the crease to support the team, but Rashid won his battle against Babar by taking his wicket in the 12th over. Babar was gone after 32(28).
The 12th over of Rashid was enough to show the level of competency between both teams. Rashid took the wicket of Babar and didn’t allow Pakistan to take even a single run.
And another wicket in the account of England in the 1st ball of the 13th over. Stokes has the most swing out of all the England bowlers, and he gets one to straighten in the 13th over, and Iftikhar was gone with 0 runs in 6 balls.
Shan Masood played as the backbone of Pakistan and took the scoreboard over 100 runs in the 15th over with a 4. Now Pakistan has reached 106/4 after 15 overs. The 17th over was also gone in favor of England. Sam took one wicket of Masood and allowed Pakistan to take only 3 runs. Masood was gone after scoring a good run chase of 38 runs in 28 balls.
In the last 3 overs, Pakistan lost wickets frequently. England’s bowlers allowed Pakistan to score 137 runs in 20 overs with a loss of 8 wickets.
