Melbourne: England have become new world champion of T-20 world cup 2022 thrashing Pakistan by five wickets.
Despite low score from the green shirts, it battled with the English team brilliantly as England achieved the target on the last bowl of the second last over while one over to spare.
Sam Curran was declared man of the match over splendid batting as he got three wickets giving only 12 runs and having 15 dot balls in his four overs while Adil Rashid also remained impressive with 2-22.

Pakistan had a set back as Shaheen Shah Afridi got injured and could not complete its overs. His departure turned turning point for Pakistan defeat as Iftakhar Ahmed who replaced Shaheen proved to be expensive over for Pakistan.
Earlier, Pakistani middle order completely collapsed today against England in the final of ICC men’s T-20 world cup final as Pakistan set 138 meager runs target after losing 8 wickets.
Pakistan had scored 38 runs on the loss of one wicket at the end of the power play. While the green shirts had made 68 runs at the end of 10th over.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam (32) and Shan Masood (38) made starts but England’s bowlers never let the South Asians settle and wickets tumbled in the final overs as they crumbled to finish on 137 for eight.
Seam-bowling all-rounder Sam Curran finished with miserly figures of 3-12 off his four overs, bowling Mohammad Rizwan for 15 for the first wicket then grabbing another two scalps in the death overs.
Leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2-22) was also instrumental in restricting Pakistan, taking a brilliant caught-and-bowled to dismiss Babar after removing number three Mohammad Haris for eight.
England and Pakistan followed pretty much the same trajectory on their way to the final. Both teams had little chance of securing a semi-final berth at one point, yet they went on a rampage towards the business end of the Super 12, and made it to the knockouts by finishing second in their respective groups.
That wasn’t the end to their similarities, though, as both sides registered comprehensive victories in the semi-finals to book their place in the final.
