Pakistan seems to not be in a rush for the 2022 T20 World Cup final against England in Melbourne. They lost the toss and were sent to bat first.
Sam Curran, the best bowler for England in this World Cup so far, bagged the first wicket, and then Adil Rashid came to the scene and picked up the wickets of Haris and Babar Azam. The Pakistani captain was opening his arms, but a googly from Adil Rashid did the trick for England. Babar fell for 32 off 28 balls.
After Babar’s dismissal, the onus was on Iftekhar Ahmed and Shan Masood to keep the scorecard afloat. But Iftekhar failed to deliver in the final. He had a duck and fell victim to Ben Stokes.
After the 13th over, Pakistan were batting at 90 for four. The lower order has to shoulder extra responsibility should Pakistan want to score more than 150 in the 2022 T20 World Cup final against England.
