T20 World Cup Final: PAK VS ENG Odds breakdown and betting preview

It sets up an enormous final (thanks, Captain Obvious) with both England and Pakistan crushing their opponents in the semis. Interestingly enough, both teams batted second and voyaged to a comfortable victory.

England: $1.60

Pakistan: $2.30

WHAT WERE LOOKING AT

  • The number 2 (England) and 3 (Pakistan)-ranked teams in the world have made the final.
  • Both squads are looking to win their second T20 World Cup.
  • The failure will be runner-up for the second time.
  • Alex Hales (211) and Jos Buttler (199) have the most runs of the two sides in the competition.
  • Shadab Khan (177.27) has the best strike rate (minimum 4 innings) of the two sides.
  • Sam Curran, Shadab Khan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi all have 10 wickets to their name for the World Cup.
  • These squads have met eight times in T20s in recent months: England has won five.

THE STRONG START

The semi-final wins from both teams were reinforced by excellent opening partnerships, Buttler and Hales did all the work for England on Thursday night and $1.92 (with Betr) for them to have the higher opening partnership looks to be marvelous value.

Particularly when looking at the Curran, Chris Woakes. And Adil Rashid-led bowling lineup that Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan will need to face, as well the slowish starts that they have gotten off to in the competition. It feels like Pakistan will face a bit more pressure, creating a rash shot or two.

GET RUNS ON THE BOARD

In their past three competitions, T20 World Cup Player Buttler and Hales have plundered the ball all over the park for first-wicket partnerships of 81, 75 a 170. They have hit form at the right time of the competition and with the over/under for that first partnership at a paltry 24.5 runs, punters could be filling their boots within the first 3 overs of England’s innings at $1.89.

Remarkably, the same can be said for Azam and Rizwan: their last three opening innings have averaged 55.33 runs. But the bowling bouts they’ve faced haven’t been as strong as England’s. The pressure can get Pakistan to rapidly score runs, so the under of 24.5 runs at $1.88 is the bet there.

THE BOWLERS

As mentioned before we have the threat of three players having taken 10 wickets through the competition so far. Both Sam Curran and Shaheen Shah Afridi have gotten their wickets using pace. And angle with their left-armed bowling pushing across the right-handers and receiving some late swing into the pads. Putting both LBW and bowled notices in play.

Given the circumstances on the night (or day: we may play this game Monday given the weather and the ICC have a backup day) respected to be quite overcast. Will be a huge factor. They can both take quick wickets. And look the most likely within their teams to take the most scalps for their squad in this enormous spot.

— Sam Curran: Most Wickets England: $3.75 (via Blue Bet)

— Shaheen Shah Afridi: Most Wickets Pakistan: $3.50 (via Blue Bet)

WHO WINS

England have match-winners throughout their line-up. Sam Curran has been bizarre with the ball all competition as has Chris Woakes, while the line up is firing at the time you want to be. Given both teams’ track records, trusting them more than Pakistan in a big competition final feels like the safer pick.

Fast bowlers give Pakistan the edge in T20 World Cup final against England

The onus will be on Shaheen Shah Afridi who has taken nine wickets in his last three matches Pakistani players were perhaps glued to the television screens in their hotel rooms. When England sent shivers down the spine of every Indian fan with a breathtaking presentation.

England T20 World Cup Player Jos Buttler’s England dismantled India with clinical exactness. Whether stifling the Indian batters with disciplined bowling or cruelly putting the Indian bowling attack to the sword.

It’s problematic to imagine what was going through Babar Azam’s mind when Alex Hales and Buttler turned a tricky chase into a cakewalk. But the Pakistan skipper is blessed with a remarkable temperament. And like many past Pakistan skippers before him, he has also been blessed with a group of gifted fast bowlers.

While Hales and Buttler destroyed the Indian bowlers like gladiators. The English batsmen are unlikely to enjoy the same freedom to swing their bats against the potent Pakistani attack at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.

Pakistani bowling

The likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, and Mohammad Wasim are improbable to err on a scandalous pitch. Where they will get good value for their swing and pace. Pakistan’s fans are brimming with enthusiasm as Shaheen, the 22-year-old left-arm pacer is beginning to show his best form after a stammering start to his T20 World Cup campaign Down Under.

With nine wickets from his last three matches, Shaheen is now living fire. It’s quite incredible how someone so young could lead a bowling attack with such skills and equanimity at the highest level. The onus will be on Shaheen. With a searing pace and swinging yorkers, he can help Pakistan fight fire with fire against the ultra-aggressive English batsmen.

Now as Shaheen runs in on Sunday, a nation of 220 million people will hold its collective breath.

In a battle between the two evenly-matched teams. It’s the Pakistan pace bout that can separate the victor from the beaten. Now as Shaheen runs in on Sunday, a nation of 220 million people will hold its collective breath. It’s been 30 years since Wasim Akram’s magical spell in the 1992 World Cup final against England at the MCG earned Pakistan their most famed triumph in cricket.

Like uncountable Pakistani left-arm pacers, Shaheen also grew up idolizing Wasim. But it’s now only him that has a chance to do it. What Wasim famously did against the same adversary on the same ground 30 years ago.

Will rain play spoilsport in Melbourne?

The MCG rain also played a key role in champions Australia’s departure from the world cup. Australia vs England was wild without a ball bowled due to rain. It denied host nation Australia the opportunity to face England in a must-win fixture. Efficiently knocking them out of the tournament.

What’s the prediction?

As per the Bureau of Meteorology, there is a 95percentt chance of rain (8 to 20 mm) in Melbourne on Sunday. More than 90,000 audiences are expected to be current at the MCG.

However unlike the league competitions, the final has a reserve day for playing. Monday at 3 PM local time (9:30 AM IST) is the slot owed for the final if the play is not possible on Sunday. In addition to that two extra hours are decided for completing the final if rain should interrupt. The Bureau of Meteorology has also issued a prediction of heavy rain for Monday (November 14) as well.

The T20 World Cup playing situations state: “Every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day,”

“Only if the least number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be finished on the reserve day.”

the playing conditions further state. Pakistan has previously reached the World Cup final. The champions of the India-England clatter at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday will face the Men in Green.

Everybody Wants India Vs Pakistan Final in T20 World Cup. Can the Cosmos Make it Occur?

Pakistan touched the finals of a T20 World Cup following a wait of 13 long years after being down and out in 2022 from Pakistan. With the elimination alarms blaring early on, Babar Azam’s team showed immense charm and grit thereafter. Three consecutive wins later and a shocking victory of Netherlands over South Africa cemented the way for the Green Army to march to the semi-final on Wednesday.

For the India semi-final, how will England replace a crucial injured batter?

Prior to Thursday’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup semifinal against India in Adelaide, England has a selection conundrum.

After being forced off the field with an injury during England’s victory over Sri Lanka in the first innings to seal qualifying from Group 1, Dawid Malan is anticipated to be unable to participate in the semi-finals.

The left-handed number three has been a cornerstone of the English T20I team in recent years, anchoring the top of the order and amassing 1748 runs at an average of 38.84.

Cricket fans can book the T20 World Cup 2nd Semi Final Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

Malan has been around the top of the MRF ICC Batting Rankings for a number of years and has been at the top of that list for extended periods of time thanks to his consistency and volume of runs. He continues to be England’s top-ranked T20 batsman, sitting at sixth in the world right now.

Malan’s expected exclusion from the starting lineup against India presents a selection challenge for Jos Buttler’s team.

The selection committee for England has the following options:

Pick Phil Salt as a direct batting replacement

The only batting cover for England in Australia is the powerful opener Phil Salt. Salt is the obvious choice if a batting-heavy selection strategy is preferred, but there are three other ways he could fit into the starting XI.

As a straight swap at No. 3

In Malan’s situation, Salt could theoretically drop straight into the side.

The benefit of this strategy is that it would prevent England from having to change their batting order at a vital point in the competition.

However, Salt rarely fills that position for his county or franchise sides and has never been selected there for England. If he were to be selected, the squad would then have a top three that was made up entirely of right-handed players.

As an opening batter

Salt likes to bat first, where he aims to get off to a quick start with lots of strikes. In his county and franchise T20 career, he has averaged over 150.53, and for England, he has a strike rate of 164.33.

Alex Hales would probably drop to number three if Salt were to open. Hales would be a frightening player to start at three, but shifting him now would be risky because he seems to have rediscovered his form at the top of the order and virtually exclusively opens in the T20 format.

As a finisher

If England decides to play Salt, a finisher position down the order would likely be the best place for him to fit into the lineup.

The Lancastrian’s quick start does make him well-suited for that position, much to how Australia switched Matthew Wade from top-order batter to finisher.

It’s unknown if Salt would rank five, six, or seven, and it would probably depend on the opponents and the circumstances of the game. However, England did put him to the test against the West Indies earlier this year, with Salt being chosen at seven and six respectively on three separate occasions. His ability to fill that role was demonstrated by a fast 57 from 24 balls.

By selecting Salt at seven, England would have the option of moving Ben Stokes up to position three, where he appears to fit better, and they would also be free to promote the dangerous Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, or both.

Replace Malan with an extra bowler

England used a batting-heavy approach during the Super 12 stage, naming four front-line bowlers and then utilizing Stokes, Ali, and Livingstone to fill in for the remaining overs.

Buttler’s choice seemed to be a bowling-heavy lineup before to the tournament, as England had regularly named five bowlers in the preceding six months.

Sam Curran is more than capable of playing as the number seven batsman if England decides to pursue such a strategy. To cover this, everyone in the batting order can simply be moved up one spot.

However, they would have two distinct options for the type of bowler they would bring in.

The death-overs specialist: Chris Jordan

Jordan has taken more T20 wickets for England than any other fast bowler, and he can swing a bat as well.

The 34-year-old had been a consistent selection in the team for the previous eight years, but he was dropped in the last year after getting completely destroyed in the last World Cup semi-final loss to New Zealand.

In the later innings, Jordan’s pace, variety, and death-bowling prowess would provide the squad another option and free up Mark Wood to attack the Indian top order early.

However, England has performed better than expected at the tournament’s end thanks to a combination of Sam Curran, Wood, and the occasional over from Chris Woakes or Stokes. That formula’s disruption can be viewed as risky.

The left-arm swing option: David Willey

Willey has been on the verge of England’s white-ball roster since Jofra Archer’s arrival knocked him down the list.

Willey is a wicket-taking swing bowler whose primary skill is finding swing and aiming for wickets in the Powerplay. He’s skilled with a bat as well.

It could be alluring to select a player who has the agility to trouble India’s formidable top order.

However, England already has Woakes, Stokes, and Curran as swing-bowling alternatives for those first six overs, so Willey might be viewed as unnecessary.

Willey as a Powerplay bowler, Jordan as a death bowler, Salt as a finisher, or Salt as a top-order hitter. England must make a crucial decision.

The decision they make might mean the difference between appearing in the World Cup Final and taking an early flight home.

England needs a T20 World Cup triumph to be a great side, claims Moeen Ali

In addition to challenging England to add another title to the 50-over World Cup they won at home in 2019, Moeen Ali acknowledged that England had struggled to play well at the T20 World Cup.

England also reached the final of the 2016 T20 World Cup and the semi-finals of last year’s competition, but Moeen does not believe their previous success is enough for them to be considered a top-level team. “There’s a lot of talk about us being a great white-ball side and the England team has been really good, but we’ve only won one tournament and it’s important we start winning more as a team and as a country,” he said.

“Then we can really call ourselves a top side. We are on the really good side. I get that, and we have been over a long period, but if we’re going to be a great side we need to win more trophies, and when I look back I want to say: ‘Yes, I was part of a great side.’”

Even though they lost to Ireland and advanced through the Super 12s by defeating New Zealand and barely edging out Afghanistan and Sri Lanka following tense run chases, England has not frequently looked that way in this tournament. They are aware that a substantial improvement would be needed if they are to reach another final when they play India on Thursday in the semifinals.

“I don’t think we’ve played well in the whole tournament,” Moeen said. “But we got the job done. We wanted to get to the semis. In the past, we’ve played well and got through. This time I don’t think we’ve played well but we’ve got through and the best is yet to come with this side. I don’t think we’ve been near where we want to be but now’s a great opportunity to put that right. You always talk about peaking at the right time and if you just about scrape through it means you can get better. If we play our best cricket in the next two games I believe we win the World Cup.”

Dawid Malan’s groyne strain against Sri Lanka on Saturday means that England will probably have to alter their starting lineup for the semi-final. Early signs suggest that Phil Salt will replace Moeen directly, though other options are being examined. Team doctors have determined that he does not need a scan, but, while he is still receiving treatment, Moeen admitted: “It doesn’t look fantastic.”

“Mala’s obviously a big miss because he’s a brilliant player in T20 cricket and he has been over a long period of time,” Moeen said. “The great thing with this side is there are so many options. You can put Ben Stokes at three, you can put Phil Salt at three, myself or whoever, there are so many options.”

After struggling to have an effect with the bat in Australia, Stokes’ performance against Sri Lanka, in which he maintained composure while those around him lost their wickets, has proven his value to the team.

T20 World Cup 2nd Semi Final

T20 World Cup 2nd Semi Final Dravid to consider changes to India’s side for England

India coach Rahul Dravid confesses he will consider making changes to his XI for the upcoming cut-throat semi-final against England at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Dravid’s mounts booked their place in the final four of this year’s competition on a dramatic final day of the Super 12 stage on Sunday. With their contented 71-run triumph over Zimbabwe ensured they finished on top of their group and advanced to a semi-final clash with England.

T20 World Cup 2nd Semi Final Dravid to consider changes to India’s side for England.

T20 World Cup 2nd Semi-Final India will travel to Adelaide to play Jos Buttler’s side on Thursday. And Dravid said he will select an XI for that match that he trusts will suit the situation. That could mean a first appearance at the competition for knowledgeable leggie Yuzvendra Chahal. The Adelaide Oval pitch is generally one that suits the slower bowlers.

T20 World Cup 2nd Semi-Final 

Experienced wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik could also earn a recall to swap Rishabh Pant. With Dravid revealing he won’t make a call on his final XI until he has seen the pitch obtainable in Adelaide.

“I think we have an open mind about everyone in our 15,” Dravid said.

“We believe anybody who comes into the 15 will not possibly make us weaker, the kind of squad we’ve picked. 

“Anybody that we need to pick will not make us a weaker squad.

“Again, we’ll have to go there and see. I watched some of the competitions (in Adelaide) today. And I know the tracks were slow and they gripped and they turned a bit. We might be playing on a completely new strip in Adelaide. And the strip we played with against Bangladesh, to be honest, did not spin. It was, again, a dissimilar kind of wicket, and it was played at Adelaide, as well.

“I think I can’t sit here now just after a game and predict what’s going to happen there. 

“We’ll have a pair of days; we’ll go and have a look at that wicket and see what we think it might do. 

“Of course, if it’s slow we’ll play according to those conditions. If we think it might play differently, then we’ll have to put up a squad to match that.”

One area of small anxiety for Dravid is the form of Axar Patel, with the all-rounder having taken just three wickets from four matches at the T20 World Cup. So far and yet to donate a score greater than seven with the bat.

Axar’s only over against Pakistan at the MCG was hit for 21 runs. While he was once again luxurious against Zimbabwe on Sunday when allowing 40 runs from 3.2 overs.

Dravid said Axar’s form was a slight concern for his side. But the former India captain pointed to the positive influence the 28-year-old had made over a longer period.

“In a few competitions (it is a concern), but he’s had good games, as well,” Dravid noted. 

“That is the nature of this tournament and this arrangement.

“The nature of this format is such that you can get taken apart. Particularly on a day like today when they lost a lot of wickets there, nonentity to lose. They could go after it, and he’s bowled well, as well. I think he bowled well in a couple of competitions and took a few wickets in those games, as well. And I thought he bowled a very decent over against Bangladesh just before the rain break. He bowled an over for six runs.

“It can happen in this format. I’m not unavoidably concerned. Yes, he would have liked to have had a healthier day than today, but having said that, he’s been someone who’s bowled well for us over the last period.”

India’s semi-final against England is held at Adelaide Oval on Thursday, with the winner continuing to the final on Sunday against either New Zealand or Pakistan.

Batter Dawid Malan Doubtful for Semifinal Clatter against India

The former world No. 1 T20I batter limped off the field during the Sri Lankan innings. And did not return to bat in England’s run chase. Vice-captain Moeen Ali said Malan’s injury doesn’t look decent.

The former world No. 1 T20I batter limped off the field during the Sri Lankan innings. And did not return to bat in England’s run pursuit. Vice-captain Moeen Ali said Malan’s injury doesn’t look good.

“He is a great player and has been for several years,” Ali told the ‘BBC’.

“He has been one of our best players. I don’t know but it (Malan’s injury) doesn’t look great.”

England, who over second in their Super 12 Group 1, will clash with Group 1 toppers India on Thursday.

“It doesn’t get better and better than playing India anywhere in the world because of the crowds and they are such a big side and force in cricket,” Ali said.

Phil Salt, the only spare batter in the squad, is the likely spare if Malan does not take the field.

The best matches from the Super 12 stage: plenty of thrills, surprises, and classics

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 has made a compelling case for being the best tournament to date thanks to some outstanding performances and eye-catching outcomes that have produced top-notch entertainment throughout the whole competition.

West Indies were the major losers in Round 1’s upsets, which had their fair share. However, the Super 12 stage was always going to be when the tournament really caught fire, and that is exactly what happened.

Here, we examine the Super 12 stage’s top contests that will live long in the mind.

Netherlands v South Africa – The biggest T20 World Cup upset?

This is likely the biggest shock in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup’s history due to the severity of the upset in such a crucial match.

The Netherlands have demonstrated during the competition and in prior years that they are a talented white-ball team, therefore this is not meant to minimize their quality.

But given South Africa’s history in the tournament, this defeat ranks among the most discouraging World Cup exits for the country.

They controlled the Dutch in the opening innings, and despite a late surge of runs, it still appeared unlikely that one of the tournament’s most destructive batting lineups wouldn’t chase down 158.

Every every one of South Africa’s top six players scored in the double digits, yet they still fell short, says a lot. The batting was at best tentative despite the excellent bowling. And there were great celebrations from both the Dutch and the Pakistani and Bangladeshi supporters who were watching. What a contest, what a conclusion, and what a time!

India v Pakistan – Kohli heroics in last-ball thriller

India’s victory over Pakistan will go down in history as one of the best World Cup matchups ever, not simply one of the most exciting World Cup matches ever.

The first innings were disrupted by early Powerplay wickets, the middle order rallied to set a respectable but manageable mark, and the chase was tightly contested.

However, Virat Kohli’s stunning and match-winning innings, with some of the shots he played in his late flurry defying cricket logic, is what elevates this contest to the top match of the Super 12 round.

In any case, 82 unbeaten from 53 balls to win the game is a fantastic knock. However, the way he did it was absolutely historic.

Ireland v England – One-sided rivalry turned on its head

Ireland’s victory in this game is a major occasion for the sport, regardless of the circumstances. England will regret the weather and their inability to advance past the needed pace when they had the chance.

The Irish previously defeated their neighbors in the 50-over World Cup match, and now they can add a T20I victory to their resume.

In the first innings, captain Andrew Balbirnie scored a masterful 62, and some accurate bowling, most notably from Joshua Little, prevented England from completing the successful pursuit.

Pakistan v Zimbabwe – Raza inspires huge upset

Zimbabwe’s epic victory over Pakistan was a remarkable game and a moment of the highest drama.

After Zimbabwe had fought its way to 130 at the halfway point, the outcome seemed improbable. The middle order for Pakistan was destroyed by the superb Sikandar Raza’s triple strike, however, setting up a thrilling conclusion.

And it was heartbreak for Pakistan off the final ball for the second straight encounter. This time, Pakistan was defeated with the bat as Brad Evans successfully held on to 11 off the last over.

Pakistan needed three runs to win off the final ball after a wicket off the penultimate ball, but they couldn’t get back for the second run as a run out ignited joyous scenes in Perth. Cricket during the World Cup at its best.

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe – Tigers survive the extreme last-ball drama

For Zimbabwe, it again came down to the final ball, but things didn’t quite go their way this time.

Zimbabwe came close to defeating Bangladesh by chasing 151 after Najmul Hossain Shanto had anchored the first innings, largely due to a stunning 64 from Sean Williams.

Williams was run out in the penultimate over, and Brad Evans was caught in the deep off the second ball of the final over, just as it appeared that the African team was going to achieve yet another fantastic triumph.

With five required off the final two balls to win it, four byes and a six immediately swung it back in Zimbabwe’s favor. However, a stumping caused the equation to shift to the penultimate ball of the innings. Huge cheers emerged from the Bangladesh camp when they successfully handled the last ball, but even if that had been the outcome, the match would still have ended spectacularly. Even more dramatic was when the keeper caught the ball before it reached the stumps, resulting in a no-ball and forcing the players back onto the field.

Zimbabwe was offered the most unexpected of second opportunities as the equation was now down to four to win, but a huge swing and miss guaranteed Bangladesh could celebrate once more. Extraordinary.

Australia v Afghanistan – Hosts given an almighty scare

In the end, Australia’s victory in this game wasn’t enough to advance them to the semi-finals. However, the tournament hosts faced off against Afghanistan in a nerve-wracking and entertaining match with qualification still potentially in the balance.

Glenn Maxwell’s brilliant 54* gave the home audience something to cheer about and added some quality to the competition. Furthermore, Australia managed the second innings brilliantly after reaching 168/8, giving the victory seeming ease.

Although Afghanistan only fell short by four runs, Rashid Khan’s spectacular show of hitting at the end of the game turned it into a thriller. He finished on 48* from just 23 balls.

India v South Africa – Quality and class as Proteas edge it

The fans in Perth were treated to a thrilling match between India and South Africa, two of the strongest teams in the world.

India’s first innings was saved by Suryakumar Yadav’s brilliance; he scored a magnificent 40-ball 68 to lead India to 133/9 and earn his promotion to the top of the T20I Batting Rankings. Only two other batters, including Rohit Sharma, who had just 15 points, were able to reach double digits.

The match was decided by excellent bowling, especially from Mohammed Shami, who went for just 13 off of four overs.

However, the Proteas were welcomed home by wealthy 1950s Aiden Markram and David Miller. They ought to have advanced to the semifinals with that performance, but the Dutch had other plans.

Australia v New Zealand – The defining match of the tournament?

Australia and New Zealand’s Super 12 encounter was one of the most lopsided, but it was also one of the best because of how much it affected the rest of the competition.

With 42 runs in just 16 powerplay attempts, Finn Allen was merciless and forced Australia to entirely reconsider their strategy with Mitchell Starc later in the group round. Additionally, Devon Conway’s unbroken 92 from 58 deliveries was outstanding.

Australia collapsed when chasing 200/3. The tournament’s hosts were defeated by a margin that was always going to be difficult to overcome after being bowled out for just 111. In the end, it was this defeat that brought an end to their title defense, as England beat them on net run rate.

T20 World Cup 1st Semi-Final is going to be very fascinating: Nikhil Chopra

Pakistan and New Zealand will lock sirens in the first semi-final on November 9. The T20 World Cup 2022 was full of twists and turns, and all forecasts that were made earlier proved to be incorrect. All the teams gave their best in the competition, and some teams, even after being eliminated from the race, managed to bag crucial wins to change the qualification scenarios.

The final four semi-finalists of the competition were revealed only on the final day of the Super 12 stage when Pakistan defeated Bangladesh to seal the last residual spot. New Zealand topped their group and became the first team to succeed, while England followed them next from that group. India was capable of the knockout stage after South Africa faced an upset against the Netherlands.

Pakistan is a dangerous side now: Nikhil Chopra

T20 World Cup 1st Semi-Final: Former India cricketer Nikhil Chopra spoke about the final few matches of the T20 World Cup 2022 which changed the sequence of the competition. While the language on ‘BatBricks7 presents Run Ki Runneeti’ show on CricTracker, Chopra said:

“Before the South Africa Vs Netherlands game took home, Pakistan and Bangladesh must have thought their competition would not be significant. Hats off to their contest would not be significant in planning for the semi-finals they put up an excellent presentation to win the game by 13 runs. Pakistan and Bangladesh, who had been at a similar site for their contest that was arranged next, towards the end of the Netherlands’ game, would have understood how significant their final game was because both had chances of making it to the semi-finals.”

“Bangladesh opted to bat first, and their start was not bad. But then Pakistan spinners were skillful in the game and Shaheen Shah Afridi listed his best bowling figures. Just when we thought Pakistan were out of the tournament, they bounced back like a difficult force and are a dangerous side now. India will top their group and will face England in the semi-final. Pakistan will face New Zealand, the toppers of Group 1, and that contest is going to be very inspiring and intriguing.”

Semi-final fixtures complete for T20 World Cup 2022

It is the culmination of the Super 12 phase on a frantic Sunday that saw a dramatic upset, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 has its two semi-final fixtures on the chart.

At the same venue, Pakistan beat Bangladesh to seal their semi-final spot.

With New Zealand and England have already sealed their requirement after Saturday’s round of matches, Group 2 saw some drama with the Proteas going down to the Netherlands in a stunning loss for the Temba Bavuma-led side, who were once on top of the table before back-to-back victims against Pakistan and Netherlands.

Pakistan’s win over Bangladesh safeguarded that they would be the fourth semi-finalists in the tournament with India joining England and New Zealand earlier in the day next to South Africa’s exit. India beat Zimbabwe by 71 runs in the final Super 12 clash and as Group 2 toppers set up a semi-final conference with England.

However, Pakistan’s bowlers had a fantastic day, bringing blows to South Africa and making their run chase more difficult than foretold. Pakistan’s premium pacer Shaheen Afridi. He has been heavily criticized for his form in the competition, recorded his best stats in the present edition, picking three wickets in three overs and surrendering only 14 runs.

T20 World Cup

 Pakistani T20 World Cup Player Shadab Khan, who scored 52 off 22 balls and took two wickets in the game, was named Player of the Match for his unsettling performance. With that win, Pakistan moved to third place in Group 2’s points table. And they need to win by a huge margin against Bangladesh and hope for a few astonishments to advance to the semi-finals.

However, November 6 (Sunday) will be an important day for Group 2 as it will confirm the two teams who will officially qualify for the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finals.

According to the weather forecast, a clear sky is predictable for November 6 (Sunday), and we can imagine a match without any rain. The daytime infection is forecast to be close to 25 degrees Celsius, with plenty of sunlight. A few clouds and showers are predictable, but only at night. Which will have little importance on India’s match against Zimbabwe.

Where does Pakistan stand in T20 World Cup after India’s win against Bangladesh?

SYDNEY: India’s victory over Bangladesh in the ICC T20 World Cup on Wednesday has further reduced Pakistan’s hopes to succeed in the semi-final of the tournament. Following the win, India has 6 points from 4 competitions. And they’re followed by South Africa with 5 points from 3 games. Pakistan is placed 5th in group 2 with just 2 points from 3 competitions.

Pakistan Vs Bangladesh

Pak next plays South Africa on Thursday. Before taking on Bangladesh in their previous game on Sunday while South Africa is also planning to play against Netherlands and India will play Zimbabwe in their last match. South Africa and India. If both are ahead of Pakistan in the points table – are to play against lower-ranked sides in their last games it is highly improbable for Pakistan to sail through.

In such a scenario, Pakistan winning both games won’t be enough. And they’ll have to be confident of at least one distressed defeat in the last round, either to South Africa or India. To stay alive in the tournament. The first and leading task for Pakistan is to win against South Africa on Thursday and then beat Bangladesh on Sunday.

Then hope that Zimbabwe or the Netherlands register a win against their adversaries, India or South Africa, correspondingly. If Pakistan beats South Africa on Thursday. Bangladesh T20 World Cup Team will finish above South Africa in the opinions table. And qualify for the semifinals along with India.

If Pakistan wins both competitions and India is upset by Zimbabwe then Pakistan. And India will tie on the points table with 6 points each. Pak previously has a better NRR than India at this stage as they’ve +0.765 compared to India’s +0.730. Pakistan can also qualify if they win both competitions. And the match between South Africa and the Netherlands is eroded out.

Pakistan T20 World Cup

The washout would limit South Africa to 6 points but it will have fewer wins than Pakistan. According to clause 16.10.2(b) of playing circumstances. If two or more teams have equal points, the team with greater wins will qualify for the semi-final. A washout between the Netherlands and South Africa would mean two wins. And two wash-outs for SA while Pak would have three wins if they win both competitions.

Though, there is no forecast of rain on Sunday in Adelaide. It is worth stating that Pakistan’s quest to remain in the argument will stay alive only if they beat South Africa in Sydney on Thursday, otherwise. There will be if and no but, and Pakistan will be out of the argument.

State of Play in Group 2: Pakistan win sets up final-day rumble

The qualification variations in Group 2 are beginning to take shape as the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 rapidly methods its knockout stage. Pakistan registered a comprehensive win over South Africa in Sydney and kept itself afloat in the running for a semi-final spot. The result also safeguards that it’s all to play for in the final round of Group 2 games. We take a look at the state of play as things stand.

Who’s in the driving seat to reach the semi-finals?

India’s narrow and nail-biting win over Bangladesh has sent them to the top with six points from four games. And now placed comfortably to top the group should they beat Zimbabwe in their final match. On the flip side, they could still be caught if they are beaten by Zimbabwe in their final match.

South Africa had an accident to officially confirm their spot in the top two with a win over Pakistan on Thursday. But they fell well short of the DLS target and will have to win their final game against the Netherlands to seal a semi-final berth. However, should the Netherlands pull off distress, it will open the door for either Pakistan or Bangladesh. Who faces off in another game on Sunday, to win and book a spot in the final four.

How can Pakistan still make it?

The chances of a Pakistan arrival in the semi-finals will depend on other results. Should the Netherlands or Zimbabwe list a win against South Africa or India respectively, Babar Azam’s men will be in with a chance. But first and foremost, they will have to win their game against Bangladesh.

The chances of a Pakistan arrival in the semi-finals will depend on other results. Should the Netherlands or Zimbabwe list a win against South Africa or India respectively,
The chances of a Pakistan arrival in the semi-finals will depend on other results. Should the Netherlands or Zimbabwe list a win against South Africa or India respectively,

If the Netherlands manage to beat the Proteas, a win over Bangladesh will see Pakistan jump South Africa to six points. While Bavuma’s men will remain on five. If Zimbabwe defeats India, Pakistan could be level on opinions with India. Given both teams would then have the same number of wins, the determining factor will be the net run rate, which is where Pakistan (+1.117) currently holds an edge over India (+0.730).

If both the results from the other competitions go Pakistan’s way. Babar Azam’s men could even top Group 2, something that seemed tremendously unlikely when they lost their opening two matches to India and Zimbabwe. But as things stand, both India and South Africa have their fates in their own hands. Win their matches and they are through to the semis.

A missed opportunity for Zimbabwe

Netherlands’ win over Zimbabwe on Wednesday has effectively ruled them out of the argument for an unlikely top-two finish. Had Sikandar Raza inspired his team to victory over the Dutch – and he did his best with limited assistance – then there could have been a chance for Zimbabwe to spring one of the biggest surprises in the history of the competition.

ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Super 12s stage Detalis

Afghanistan                                                               

In their last 20 games, Afghanistan has won 10 of them, including a series in Ireland that they lost 3-2. They have, however, been tinkering with their batting order. In the World Cup last year, they defeated Namibia and Scotland, but they dropped three of their other matches. Additionally, because of their reliance on spin, they will perform better on American surfaces. It’s sad because they have never defeated Bangladesh in this style.

Coach Jonathan Trott,                         

 Captain Mohammad Nabi 

T20WC best Super 10s (2016)

Australia

They were expected victors the previous year, but twelve months later, they played at home and had a stronger team thanks to Tim David’s ascent to the middle of the order as a free-hitting batter. A repeat performance wouldn’t be shocking because the 26-year-old has already forced Steve Smith out of their side. Because of his poor performance, only Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch appear to have kept Finch in the lineup. Finch has a strike rate of 121 and a 12-month average of 23.47 runs. Maxwell is renowned for his capacity to perform admirably under pressure, and his score of 76 against India in Australia’s most recent warm-up game ought to have been sufficient to ignite the captain’s fire.

Coach Andrew McDonald, 

Captain Aaron Finch 

T20WC best Champions (2021)

Bangladesh

To finish their World Cup preparations, Bangladesh played four games against Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, and the UAE and lost 11. In the tri series in New Zealand, when they faced a whole different set of openers, they likewise dropped all four of their games. The team lacks batting depth as well as firepower, despite the fact that Shakib Al Hazan is still in excellent form and has recently achieved half century against Pakistan, the West Indies, and New Zealand. Bangladesh failed to develop after losing every Super 12s match last season.

Captain Shakib Al Hasan 

T20WC best Super 8s (2007)

England

England was referred to as “the benchmark” for this format in the three-game series by Matthew Wade of Australia. Since they departed their home last month, Jos Buttler’s team has appeared just like it. Despite the injury to Reece Topley, the team remained optimistic. They have Mark Wood, the fastest bowler in the competition, and they provide a wide range of batting alternatives. Despite the fact that bowling is not their strongest suit, if they perform well, they can afford the best.

Coach Matthew Mott

 Captain Jos Buttler 

T20WC best Champions (2010)

India

India failed to qualify for the Super 12. There were several causes, but their careless batting was the most disturbing. They batted first in the critical matches against Pakistan and New Zealand, reaching respectable totals of 151 and 110 runs in their 20 overs, respectively, but were unable to hold on. Rohit Sharma took over for Virat Kohli after the World Cup. This year, they have averaged 8.20 runs per over, good for a world-leading 9.36. Even without Jasprit Bhumrah, who was an excellent bowler in this style, they still have a very menacing appearance.

Coach Rahul Dravid 

Captain Rohit Sharma 

T20WC best Champions (2007)

Ireland

Ireland is participating in the T20 World Cup for the first time since 2009. It was accomplished by defeating West Indies in the final match of the first stage with an outstanding and convincing victory. Paul Stirling picked up the pace in the game against an undefeated 66, despite the fact that his ability has never been questioned. He will be much more dangerous on his side if he can keep it up. Since being elevated to No. 3, Lorcan Tucker’s performance has significantly improved. George Dockrell finishes strong, averaging 52.16 over the last six months with a strike rate of 146, while he averages 40.81.

Coach Heinrich Malan 

Captain Andrew Balbirnie 

T20WC best Super 8s (2009)

Netherlands

The Dutch lost to Sri Lanka in their final first-round group game, as told by disappointed player Scott Edwards. They’re merely difficult competitions, isn’t it, he said? One mistake can ruin you, he warned. With a UAE victory, they moved on to Group 2. Max O’Dowd has been in excellent form, while Bas de Leede has been their most threatening batter and bowler. However, they score too slowly (6.40 runs per over in their group), thus they won’t be able to withstand the higher level of competition.

Coach Ryan Campbell

 Captain Scott Edwards 

T20WC best Super 10s (2014

New Zealand

You probably recognise a lot of the New Zealand squad members from their participation in the final the year before. Any team that features Trent Boult, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, and Kane Williamson is going to be extremely risky. Michael Bracewell and Finn Allen, who has consistently been a strong opener (31-year-old, who had never played in any format for his country seven months prior, but now is in every one). In the first game, they will face Australia, a team they haven’t defeated since 2011.

Coach Gary Stead 

Captain Kane Williamson 

T20WC best Runners-up (2021)

Pakistan

Shaheen Shah Afridi’s seam attack is undoubtedly the best in the tournament. He also has the most reliable batting pairing in the form of Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, who have combined for 840 runs and an average 49.41. The top order has some problems, but as England showed in their seven-game win there last month, they are not impossible to beat. They were the most exciting of the World Cup teams and should be more dangerous on these surfaces if it is possible.

Coach Saqlain Mushtaq 

Captain Babar Azam 

T20WC best Champions (2009)

South Africa

South Africa defeated England in three games this summer, despite David Miller scoring only 30 runs. In the Indian series, he showed what he can do. He started with a three-ball duck, followed by a brilliant, unbeaten 47 ball 106 and a five-ball 19. South Africa has a trio with big-scoring bats. Rillee Rossouw, Tristan Stubbs and Miller all have strike rates above 180. Rossouw and Miller both average over 50. The captain Temba Bavuma, who has an average of 10.66 and a strike rate 82, is less promising. He would not be able to compete with the other sides in this competition.

After being deemed outsiders by many, Sri Lanka was able to make it through the opening group despite a defeat to Namibia. This earned them a spot in Group 1. Chris Silverwood also made it to Group 1, where he reunited with England. Dushmantha Chamela and Dunushka Gunathilaka, both of whom were victims of muscle tear injuries, have had to be treated by the team. They were clearly not prepared for their first match, but they have improved and are now match-ready.

Zimbabwe had the advantage of playing their qualifying tournament at home. They won five of the five matches and swept through the final with five wins from five. Their all-rounder Sikandar Raza scored 228 runs, which is an average of 41.2 runs at a strike rate 154.50. This trend has continued into the World Cup. Raza was not only Zimbabwe’s top run-scorer, but he also ranked second among their bowlers on economy rate (just after Tendai Chatara), and second on wickets, (after Blessing Muzarabani).

THE LOWDOWN

ENGLAND Vs SRI LANKA

  • England simply had to beat New Zealand to keep their competition hopes alive and did just that, overcoming the Black Caps by 20 runs after their score of 179/6 proved adequate as they restricted New Zealand to 159/6 in response.
  • Skipper Jos Buttler played one of his most crucial knocks for England and easily his best since being named white-ball captain, crashing 73 from 47 balls, whilst fellow opener Alex Hales replied to the pressure upon him by making a very welcome half-century.
  • Sri Lanka remains in the hunt for a place in the semi-finals, but a poor net-run-rate means that they are likely to need a large victory over England If they are to make it, with the expectation that both Australia and New Zealand will win their final ‘Super 12’ fixtures against Afghanistan and Ireland correspondingly.
  • This encounter boasts a fascinating side story as Sri Lanka head coach Chris Silverwood goes up against his former employers, who sacked him following their 4-0 Ashes disgrace in Australia at the start of the year.

T20 World Cup: THE PREDICTION

Sri Lanka most likely needs to win this one by an important margin and may well play into England’s hands, especially their bowlers who will look to order accuracy to try to break the spine of Sri Lanka’s top order with early wickets irrespective of whether they are bowling first or second. After a slow start, it feels like England is preliminary to finding its feet, as shown in what was an excellent all-round performance against New Zealand. If they duplicate those levels with bat and ball in this contest, Buttler’s men will be predictable to wind up too strong for Sri Lanka.

England Vs Sri Lanka: how to watch T20 World Cup cricket match on TV – date, UK start time, weather, and teams

All you need to see is ahead of England Vs Sri Lanka at the T20 World Cup. This weekend England will take on Sri Lanka for their fifth and final group stage fixture following a successful win over current group leaders New Zealand this week. England had just one win to their name until Tuesday 1 November, beating Afghanistan but losing to Ireland the previous week. To know more about England T20 World Cup Tickets click here.

England set up a score of 179 for New Zealand to pursue down, thanks to the efforts of Alex Hales towards the end of the power play and Jos Buttler further into the runs. Hales hit 52 off 40 before Buttler came into the act and scored 73 off 47. England was abridged to 179/6 by the end of the innings with Trent Boult the only bowler not to take a wicket.

Sri Lanka most likely needs to win this one by an important margin and may well play into England’s hands, especially their bowlers
Sri Lanka most likely needs to win this one by an important margin and may well play into England’s hands, especially their bowlers

However, two wickets for Chris Woakes and Sam Curran as well as a wicket each for Mark Wood and Ben Stokes reduced New Zealand’s total rapidly and, despite a solid effort from Glenn Philips who hit 62 off just 36 balls, Kane Williamson’s side could only reach 159/6 by the end of their 20 overs. England’s win has now put them back up to another in the group table and they must beat Sri Lanka if they are to progress to the next stage of the rivalry.

When is England Vs Sri Lanka?

England Vs New Zealand

England Vs New Zealand: ENG in must-win land against NZ in a replay of last year’s semi-final

England Vs New Zealand: New Zealand will still be well-placed smoothly. If they lose, though they would likely need to beat Ireland to safeguard progress to the semi-final

Big picture

England Vs New Zealand’s last meeting in this format was a prompt classic, a slow-burning epic that saw England’s World Cup hopes to go up in fires. Just short of a year on, England will be staring elimination in the face once again. Unless they can overcome one of the competition’s two unbeaten sides at the Gabba. They would still be alive exactly with a defeat on Tuesday night. But will be relying on Afghanistan beating Australia on Friday, before having to overcome Sri Lanka in their final fitting in Sydney. In short, this is a must-win.

T20 World Cup

The net run rate shouldn’t be a major anxiety for England at this stage. Thanks in no small part to Ireland’s Lorcan Tucker. Australia was heading for an undoubted win on Monday evening when Ireland was 25 for 5, but Tucker’s undefeated 71 closed the margin of defeat. As a result, two wins should be enough for England to reach the semi-final; and they have the benefit of playing the last game in Group 1.

New Zealand has been hugely imposing in brushing Australia and Sri Lanka aside. And victory in Brisbane would seal for them a semi-final berth for the third consecutive T20 World Cup. Moreover, given their net run rate, they will be near to locking in the top spot. New Zealand will still be well-placed even if they lose. Though they would likely need to beat Ireland in Adelaide on Friday to safeguard their progress.

England Vs New Zealand

Enough about the variations and onto the game itself, which could be won and lost in the two power plays. Trent Boult and Tim Southee, New Zealand’s opening bowlers crossways formats for most of the last period, have been lethal with the new ball since arriving in Australia. While England’s top order is yet to fire. Jos Buttler has been very fruitful against Boult in T20s: but can he take his Rajasthan Royals team-mate down in Brisbane when it substances most?

England’s seamers were outstanding with the new ball against Afghanistan but were wayward against Ireland; they conceded 59 runs in the first six overs, with Chris Woakes coming in for chiefly brutal action. Finn Allen is the key wicket: New Zealand blitzed 65 for 1 against Australia when he raced out of the blocks. But tripped to 25 for 3 against Sri Lanka after he fell originally on.

In the Spotlight

“The one person that you want in your team when the weight is on is Ben Stokes,”

Paul Collingwood, England’s associate coach, said on Monday.  England T20 World Cup Player Stokes has managed only 41 runs off 42 balls in his five T20Is since inward in Australia, and for all his quality as a bowler, player, and leader. Now is the time for him to turn the intangibles into game-defining aids. To know more about England T20 World Cup Tickets click here.

England’s batsmen have targeted Ish Sodhi. Whenever they have faced him in T20Is: he has nine wickets in as many arrivals against them, with an eye-watering cheap rate of 10.64 runs per over. Sodhi took the key wicket of Buttler in last year’s semi-final. And will need to be at his finest on Tuesday night against a deep batting line-up.

Team news

England’s T20 World Cup assortment came under scrutiny after their defeat to Ireland. But they were due to play an unaffected team against Australia before the game was washed out. As a result, it seems improbable they will make changes barring a late injury. However, Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali could be shuffled up the order after limited chances so far in this competition. Stokes has hardly trained but has been declared fully fit.

England (probable): 1 Jos Buttler (capt, wk.), 2 Alex Hales, 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Liam Livingstone, 6 Moeen Ali, 7 Harry Brook, 8 Sam Curran, 9 Chris Woakes, 10 Mark Wood, 11 Adil Rashid

Mitchell Santner bowled a lonely over in last year’s semi-final, with Kane Williamson reluctant to use him against Dawid Malan and Moeen. England has added an extra left-hander to their middle order this time in Ben Stokes. This could block Santner’s use; as a result, New Zealand might reflect on bringing Michael Bracewell. The off-spinning all-rounder, into their side. To know more about New Zealand T20 World Cup Tickets click here.

New Zealand (probable): 1 Finn Allen, 2 Devon Conway (wk.), 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Glenn Phillips, 5 Daryl Mitchell, 6 James Neesham, 7 Michael Bracewell/Mitchell Santner, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Ish Sodhi, 10 Trent Boult, 11 Lockie Ferguson

Pitch and situations

David Hussey describes the Gabba as

“perhaps the best batting pitch in Australia for white-ball cricket”,

and the numbers back that p: the average scoring degree there in men’s T20Is is 7.94 per over. The second-highest of any Australian ground. The pitch was on the slow side in Australia’s win against Ireland on Monday, a similar strip will be used on Tuesday, which could bring spinners into play.

Bad conditions have followed England around over the last week. And the forecast for the match is not the best, with rain due to fall throughout Tuesday morning. However, the weather is predicted to clear up later in the day. And the Gabba’s renowned subversive drainage system could ensure the squads get on to the pitch.

 England Vs New Zealand: Stats and trivia

  • England T20 World Cup Player Buttler will become the second player to reach 100 men’s T20Is for England after Eoin Morgan. And will overtake his precursor as their all-time leading run-scorer in the format if he can make at least 64.
  • Malan has conquered Sodhi during their previous meetings in T20Is, hitting 105 runs off 58 balls. It is one of only five head-to-head match-ups in T20I history where a batter has scored more than 100 runs off a single bowler. And where ball-by-ball data is available.
  • Allen has the uppermost strike rate in T20 history among batters with at least 1000 runs.
  • New Zealand T20 World Cup Team has never played a T20I at the Gabba and has poor historic greatest there across formats. They have not won a game in Brisbane in the last 20 years. Their most recent conquest came in an ODI against South Africa in January 2002.

Paul Collingwood 

“It’s trying when you’ve got the rain around in Melbourne: it was almost like English circumstances there. It’s nice to come up to Brisbane. Where it’s a lot warmer, and we’re all looking forward to getting a full 40 overs in.”


Paul Collingwood is hoping for a dry evening at the Gabba after the washout against Australia at the MCG

“Our brand of cricket might not look as violent as them. But we need to stick to what we have done well for some time, and make sure we throw our punches in our way.”
Lockie Ferguson doesn’t expect New Zealand to make any major adjustments to their style of play against England
