T20 World Cup: England Beats India to Face Pakistan in the Final

After a full month of epic cricket games, the final of the T20 World Cup is coming our way this weekend. England produced one of their greatest victories since the start of this tournament against India, and they’re now set to face Pakistan in the final on Sunday. The match between England and Pakistan was one for the books, and the English team eventually won by 10 wickets. England chased down a target of 169 with four overs to spare, with Jos Buttler (80 not) and Alex Hales (86 not) leading them to victory. England’s captain Jos Buttler described the match as their best performance so far, adding that the team has really shown their character against a top-quality opponent. “We came here very excited, there was a really good feel around the group, and I felt everyone from one to 11 stood up today… We will enjoy this as a brilliant performance but we know there is one big dance to go,” said Butler post-game. England and Pakistan both have one T20 World Cup win under their belt. Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka to come out victorious in 2009, while England picked up the trophy one year later against Australia. West Indies is currently the only team with two wins at this tournament, and whoever wins on Sunday will tie their record. The 2022 ICC Men's T20 World Cup kicked off in Australia on October 16. The final match will take place on November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia.
