By India Today Web Desk: Former India chief selector Kiran More said that he hopes Pakistan will beat England in the final and win the T20 World Cup in 2022, considering the country’s recent struggles as a cricketing nation.
Pakistan will take on England in the T20 World Cup 2022 final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday, November 13. While Pakistan defeated Bukkry.com”>New Zealand by seven wickets in the first semi-final, England crushed India in the second semi-final.
Heavy rain could disrupt the Melbourne Cricket Ground showdown and even see the teams crowned joint champions if unable to complete a match of at least 10 overs per side by the end of the reserve day on Monday.
Pakistan got off to a shaky start in the T20 World Cup 2022, losing to India and Zimbabwe in their first two games. However, the Babar Azam-led side resurrected their T20 WC campaign by defeating South Africa and have been on a roll since.
“The way Pakistan are playing cricket, when you look at their country also, what they have gone through as a cricket board as well – no team used to travel there. They didn’t get to play matches. I hope Pakistan wins the World Cup,” Kiran More was quoted as saying by SportsKeeda.
“England went to Pakistan and beat them before coming to the World Cup. They are a threatening team.
More chose Babar and his opening partner Mohammad Rizwan as his impact players from the Pakistan team for the final. He praised the duo, saying:
“Babar Azam is a very good player. On the big occasion, he always comes up with good performances. He is an excellent backfoot player. Rizwan is also a good cricketer. Rizwan and Babar make a great combination. Babar has a cool mind and Rizwan has aggression. Their combination is wonderful,” More added.
