England and Pakistan take on each other in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Melbourne on November 10. The PAK vs ENG final will be a rematch of the 1992 World Cup final in many ways.

Both teams are past winners of the T20 World Cup. Pakistan won it in 2009 while England in 2010. This is England’s first final since the 2016 T20 World cup while for Pakistan this is their first final in 13 years. 

England defeated India in the second semi-final by 10 wickets in Adelaide to make their way to the final. Jos Buttler 80* and Alex Hales 86* added an unbeaten 170-run stand in 16 overs to win the game for their team. The Jos Buttler-led side began their World Cup campaign with a win against Afghanistan.

They lost their next game in one of the upsets of the tournament. Back-to-back wins against New Zealand and Sri Lanka meant they made the semis and from there on advanced to the final.

Pakistan, on the other hand, began its campaign with back-to-back losses against India and Zimbabwe. They won their next two games against the Netherlands and South Africa. South Africa’s loss to the Netherlands meant that Pakistan needed to beat Bangladesh in their final Super 12 game which they did with ease.

They brought out their best game against the Kiwis in the first semi-final and are now dreaming to win their second T20 World Cup title. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan struck the fifties to come back into form in the knick of time. After a slow start, Shaheen Afridi now has 10 wickets in the tournament and he took 2/24 against the Kiwis.
