England vs Pakistan

England beat Pakistan by 5 wickets to win the ICC T20 World Cup. The Three Lions put on a stellar show to become the T20 world champions for the second time in the tournament’s history.

In a repeat of the 1992 World Cup final, batting first, Pakistan had a below-par start. In the last five overs, Pakistan’s lower middle order tumbled like dominos and put 137/8 on the board.

In reply, England kept the required run rate in check but lost wickets at regular intervals. Ben Stokes again rose to the occasion and remained unbeaten till the end.

Stokes who was England’s hero in their 2019 World Cup triumph amassed 52(49) today and helped England beat Pakistan with one over remaining.

With this feat, England became the first team to win the 50-over World Cup and T20 World Cup at the same time.
