ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will commence on October 16 in Australia. The inaugural match was played between Asia Cup 2022 champion team Sri Lanka and newcomer Namibia at Geelong Cricket Ground, Victoria. Moreover, the final is to be played on November 13 in Melbourne.
Pakistan will begin its journey against arch-rivals India on 23rd October. Pakistan has been a part of all seven editions of the T20 World Cup. Moreover, in the year 2009, Pakistan was the champion. Out of 40 matches, the Men in Green have won 23 and lost 15, while one was a tie. Hence, its win percentage is about 61.25.
Their recent performance in T20Is has been phenomenal. While the captain Babar Azam is in good touch with the bat, his fellow opener Mohammad Rizwan, who holds the first spot in the ICC Men’s T20 Batting Rankings has immense potential. Furthermore, the lefty speedster Shaheen Afridi join the national team soon, hence, the Pakistani contingent looks in a good position to win the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 trophy.
