New Delhi. The cricket teams of England and Pakistan (ENG vs PAK) will be face to face in the final of the T20 World Cup today i.e. on Sunday (November 13). The title match of the T20 World Cup will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from 1:30 pm Indian time. Both the teams are eyeing to become champions for the second time. Pakistan had captured this trophy in the year 2009 while the England team had won this glittering trophy in 2010. Before the title clash, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has tried to play a mind game against England.
The current T20 World Cup has been a roller-coaster ride for Pakistan. He was defeated by India in the first match of the Super 12, while his hopes of reaching the semi-finals were looking bleak after the defeat against Zimbabwe, but thanks to the results of the other teams in Group 2, Babar Azam and Co. were successful in reaching the semi-finals. . Pakistan entered the title match by defeating New Zealand by 7 wickets in the semi-finals.

Before the England vs Pakistan T20 World Cup final match, Shoaib Akhtar said on his YouTube channel, ‘The difference will be that England is in a great position. England’s confidence will be on the seventh sky. England knows that Pakistan’s bowlers here are not like India’s bowling attack. Here one has to win by doing something or the other. Walkover will not be available so easily.
Whoever wins the final between Pakistan and England team will equal the world record of West Indies. West Indies has named the T20 World Cup tournament 2 times. The way the Jos Buttler-led English team defeated India by a big margin in the semi-finals has boosted its confidence. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan played half-centuries in the semi-final against New Zealand.
According to Shoaib Akhtar, a lot depends on Babar and Rizwan. The strike rate at which he played is important. The 6 overs in which our strike rate was missing, it is back. Melbourne’s wicket will also suit both the batsmen. Both should play keeping their strike rate in mind. Pakistan’s batting will depend to a great extent on Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.
