T20 World Cup: The team lead by Babar Azam had an exciting run in the competition as they stormed into the knockout stages, despite the fact that they lost the first two games of the tournament. On the final day of the Twenty20 World Cup, Pakistan will face England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in what is expected to be the match of the tournament. The team that was coached by Babar Azam had a thrilling run in the competition, as they were able to make it all the way to the semifinals despite suffering defeat in both of their opening group matches. They went on to win the semi-final against New Zealand by a score of seven wickets, which qualified them for a position in the final. The championship match between the two teams has created an eerie parallel to the 1992 50-over World Cup, which Pakistan won under the leadership of Imran Khan. That tournament was held in Pakistan. Tom Moody, who played cricket for Australian in the past, made a sincere declaration that the team lead by Babar Azam has the potential to leave their own mark on the sport in Australia by winning the Twenty20 World Cup.
“This is the beauty of history, and this is the legacy that Imran Khan’s team has left behind for Pakistan. Therefore, that presents an opportunity for Babar and his crew to make their own mark in the world.
In addition, the format is distinct from that of the 50 overs World Cup; therefore, it is about time that there was a 20-20 World Cup. According to Tom Moody’s comments on Star Sports, “It is an opportunity for them to break new ground and create their own legacy and footprint in Australian.”
At the beginning of their campaigns for both the World Cup in 1992 and the World Cup in 2022, Pakistan was defeated at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. India prevailed victorious over Pakistan in both of the competitions that they participated in.
