It is worth noting that Pakistan and England will meet in a World Cup final for the first time in 30 years. The two teams last met in the 1992 World Cup, which Pakistan won under Imran Khan’s captaincy.
In terms of the team, England is in great form, which helped them easily defeat India in the semi-finals.
They completely batted the Asian giants out of contention, effectively eliminating them from the competition, and will now look forward to continuing their blistering form against Pakistan.
Pakistan, on the other hand, had a rollercoaster T20 World Cup campaign. Pakistan’s success in the games following defeats in their first two matches against India and Zimbabwe is heavily reliant on the start provided by their new ball attack.
