What a great comeback. It was a great victory for Pakistan.
Green-Shirts, You made us proud.
Pakistan has reached the Final with convincing win over England, truly deserved on the day.
It won’t be wrong to say:
“Aj Pakistan ka din tha.”
Pakistan won the toss and chose to field.
Hassan Ali, Junaid khan and Ruman Raees bowled well. Hasan Ali returned 3 for 35 in his 10 while, Ruman Raees and Junaid Khan took two apiece. England gave the target of 211 to Pakistan, losing all its wickets at the second last ball.
Batting of Pakistan was also outstanding. Fakhar Zaman started the inning at the roller coaster while, Azhar Ali on the other end was very calm.
Zaman scored his 2nd consistent fifty. By the time Zaman departed, Pakistan was on 118 in 21 overs.
After that Azhar Ali and Babar Ali played sensibly and Pakistan came up for 173 in 32nd over. The Ryan Sidebottom method bears fruit. A slow bouncer sticks in the pitch, Azhar attempts a tennis swat and drags it on to his stumps. Hafeez ends up the match the for Pakistan with a beautiful four on Stroke’s ball.
