Jos Buttler has won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

“The wicket is looking good and the energy inside the stadium is amazing. There is a bit of weather around which is why we are bowling first,” said Jos Buttler.

Babar Azam would have bowled first as well. “We will try to put runs on the board and put pressure on them. We will do our best to repeat the 1992 history,” he said.
