T20 World Cup Final: England Beat Pakistan By A Margin of 5 Wickets
Ben Stokes demonstrated composure with an unbeaten half-century as England defeated Pakistan by five wickets in the T20 World Cup Final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday to win the tournament for the second time. English turned the tables on the south Asians with excellent death bowling and with Stokes finishing on 52 not out in a chase of 138 for victory, thirty years after losing the 50-over World Cup final to Pakistan at the MCG.
Earlier. In the T20 World Cup final on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground versus Pakistan, England won the toss and elected to bat first. From their semi-finals, neither team altered. Pakistan scored 137 runs in the allotted 20 overs.

Ben Stokes began to yell as soon as he hit, and he continued to roar until Livingstone gave him a hug. The rest of his teammates will follow. Perhaps no other cricketer in the modern era seizes pivotal situations the way he does. He left his mark on all the major events. The World Cup final of 2019.
Shaheen Afrid Injury and England Won
Shaheen Afridi is removed from the game after bowling just one ball in the 16th over because she was finding it difficult to bowl due to a previous injury. To finish the over, Iftikhar Ahmed enters.
The image of the ball ricocheting off his bat stuck in his head even as he lay sprawled on the ground. He was so bent over the non-striker during The Ashes that he couldn’t even see his partner Jack Leach bat.
And then Pat Cummins delivered that jaw-dropping blow. He has now grasped the enormous opportunity in another World Cup and snatched it up with steel and passion.
The focus of the World Cup final’s build-up has been on how Sunday’s matchup is a rematch of that World Cup final from 1992, which Pakistan won by defeating England in at the same Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The Babar Azam team’s campaign shares similarities to the championship run of that era’s team. Like in 1992, no one predicted that this Pakistani side would advance to the knockout rounds, especially after their defeat by India and subsequent humiliation at the hands of Zimbabwe.
