T20 World cup: Are Pakistanis scared? After all, why doesn’t Team India want to reach the finals?

New Delhi: Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 7 wickets in the semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. With this, Pakistan has become the first team to reach the final of this tournament. The second semi-final is to be played between India and England. The winner of this match will go to the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 13 November for the title clash against Pakistan. However, before this, many former Pakistan cricketers are estimating India less than England in the second semi-final.

Legends like former Pakistan cricketers Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis feel that the Indian team will not be able to cross the semi-final hurdle against England. During the discussion on Pakistani news channel, he believed that in the final, in front of Pakistan, instead of India, England would be the team. Former cricketers know how big a challenge India is going to be for them and that is why they want the collision to be with England.

In big tournament matches, it is often seen that the Pakistani team is unable to handle the pressure in front of India and is forced to kneel. In such a situation, the Pakistani team would not want to take the extra pressure of playing against India on big occasions like the final. For this reason also, former Pakistan cricketers are of the opinion that Pakistan should not face India’s challenge in the final.

In the first match, India had beaten Pakistan in the dust.

In the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, the first match of both was played between India and Pakistan. In this match, Team India defeated Pakistan by 4 wickets. In the match, the Pakistani team had proved badly weak in front of India. After this defeat against Team India, the situation was that a team like Zimbabwe could not handle itself even further and lost the match by 1 run. It was because of the loss against India that Pakistan was on the verge of being knocked out of the tournament.

Pakistani legends remember their record against India

The Indian cricket team has a great record in the ICC World Cup against Pakistan. Perhaps former Pakistani cricketers are also aware of this. A total of 7 matches have been played between the two teams in the ICC T20 World Cup, in which the Indian team has won 6 times. At the same time, on only one occasion, the Pakistani team has tasted victory. This includes the final of the 2007 T20 World Cup, which could be one reason why the former Pakistan cricketer does not want his team to face India again.

Not only in the T20 World Cup, but in the 50-over ICC World Cup, the Pakistani team has been laggy in front of India. In the 50-over World Cup, the Indian team’s record has been 100 percent. In this event, the two teams have clashed seven times, in which Pakistan has to face defeat on all occasions.

Luck has supported Pakistan

The fate of the Pakistani team, which has reached the final of the ICC T20 World Cup, is also supporting it a lot. The Netherlands, who were almost out of the tournament, were upset by the Netherlands and kept their hopes alive. In fact, after India in Super-12, South Africa’s team was a strong contender to reach the semi-finals but they had to win the match against Netherlands in any case. If South Africa had defeated the Netherlands, they would have got seven points.

However this could not happen. Netherlands beat South Africa and turned it upside down. Now the equation became that South Africa had only 5 points left. On the other hand, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh in their last league match and secured 6 points to secure their place in the semi-finals. In this way it can be said that luck has also been completely with Pakistan.
