Pakistan and England are all set to clash against each other as they play to win the ICC T20 Men’s World Cup Finals on Sunday, November 13. While Pakistan defeated New Zealand in semifinals to reach the final lag, England registered their victory against India by 10 wickets. Both the qualified for semifinals after securing second spot in their respective teams. Pakistan’s journey to finals has been an interesting one as the team, led by Babar Azam, lost to India and Zimbabwe in the first two Super 12 matches. However, ever since, they have scored a win in every single match played.
England and Pakistan earlier played against each other in the T20 World Cup warm-up matches, where the former scored a clean victory with 6 wickets and 4 overs in hand. While both the teams ensure a nail-biting game on Sunday, given their strong teams and exemplary performance in the last few matches, rain might play a spoilsport for cricket fans in Melbourne.
Soon after the finals, the two teams will engage in three test matches, scheduled to be played between December 1 and December 21.
