Jos Buttler has won the toss and decided to bowl first against Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup final. England and Pakistan are both eyeing their 2nd silverware in the T20 World Cup history, and the winner will become the joint most successful team of the prestigious tournament.
England entered the final after a comfortable ten-wicket win over India, while the Men in Green beat New Zealand to enter their first final after 2009.
Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi was asked to comment on Pakistan’s plan to stop Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, who stitched an unbeaten 170-run stand against India.
Meanwhile, Afridi took a dig at the Indian attack and issued a warning to the English bowlers.
The former all-rounder stated that there is a vast difference between Indian and Pakistani bowlers and ruled out the possibility of Buttler and Hales having the same impact against Pakistan as they had against India.
Afridi remarked, “Every day is not a Sunday,” he said.“By god’s grace, our bowlers and batsmen are in great form.”
