T20 World Cup 2022 is scheduled to take place during October and November of 2022 in Australia. According to the former skipper of the Indian men’s cricket team, Shahid Afridi, the team has a good chance of winning the tournament. He has asked fans to keep on supporting them so that it can give a morale boost to the players.
Talking about the performance of the Pakistani team in the 2021 T20 World Cup, it won all the matches in the Super-12 stage. The Babar Azam-led team finished at the top of Group 2. Despite their brilliant performances, it failed to reach the finals of the tournament. It was defeated by the Australian team by 5 wickets in a thrilling and high-voltage match.
Pakistan scored 176/4 in the 20 overs when they decided to bat first after winning the toss at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Despite having quite a shaky start, the Australian team was able to chase down the target within 19 overs. Marcus Stoinis (40) and Matthew Wade (41) were the major contributors who helped the team to win the matches. Both the players remained unbeaten, and really played well in such a high-pressure situation. They were able to display a feast of sixes in the 19th over of the game.
After the match, the Pakistan skipper addressed that the turning point of the match was the missed catch and small mistakes made by them. They should have been more careful about this crucial clash. According to Betway analysis, had they been a little more controlling in the game, they would have qualified for the finals. It was tough luck this time, but if the Pakistan team is able to maintain the same consistency in its game, it does have a chance of winning the T20 World Cup 2020.
Betway ambassador Kevin Pietersen picked 3 Pakistani players Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi (which is the most by any nation) in his best XI of the tournament that show how excellent Men In Green were.
Shahid Afridi congratulated the team for their efforts this year. He tweeted that the team has really made them all proud, and their efforts were truly shown throughout the tournament. He also added that with this high-voltage performance, the team has a fair chance of winning the next year’s T20 World Cup. The audience would need to support the team and back the players.
In the meantime, Pakistan is traveling to Bangladesh for a three-match T20 series and a two-match ODI series. Their performance during this series will get scrutinized by cricketing experts from all around the world.
