Pakistan Reach Final Of T-20 World Cup 2022 By Beating New Zealand With Seven Wickets

Sydney: Pakistan have reached final of ICC men T-20 World cup after beating New Zealand by seven wickets in the first semi final of T-20 world cup 2022 Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Muhammad Rizwan was declared man of the match over his half century in the semi final and first of the tournament.

 The win means Pakistan will be playing their third T20 World Cup final since the tournament started in 2007.

Pakistan losing three wickets achieved the target in the last over few balls to spare.

Both Baber Azam and Muhammad Rizwan scored fifties in the semi final match.

Before this game, everyone had questions about the opening pair of the team and it seems the 105-run partnership between skipper Babar Azam and wicket-keeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan should end the debate.

Earlier, New Zealand after winning toss decided to bat first and have set 153 runs target for Pakistan in the first semi final of T-20 world cup at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG)

Daryl Mitchell’s half-century helped New Zealand set a 153-run target for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup semi-final.

Pakistan were off to a flying start after Shaheen Shah Afridi dismissed the explosive Fin Allen on the third ball of the innings to leave New Zealand 4/1.

The wicket brought Kane Williamson to the crease and forced New Zealand to be cautious in the powerplay.

Tight overs from Naseem Shah, Shaheen, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Wasim Jr further racked up the pressure on the Blackcaps.

Matters turned worse for New Zealand after they lost opener Devon Conway from the last ball of the powerplay to end the first six at 38/2.

After the end of the powerplay, Babar introduced spin into the game and it proved fruitful, as Mohammad Nawaz dismissed Glen Phillips in the eighth over to further dent New Zealand’s scoreboard.

From then on, the 68-run partnership between Williamson and Daryl Mitchell made it look like New Zealand would post a competitive target for Pakistan.

The partnership broke after Shaheen’s dismissed Williamson in the 17th over.

However, Mitchell along with James Neesham did not let the dismissal stop New Zealand’s attack as the Black Caps ended the innings with 152/4.

For New Zealand, Mitchell was the highest scorer and remained unbeaten for 53. 

This is the fourth time that the Men in Green and the Blackcaps are seeing each other in a world cup semi-final. 

The two sides have clashed six times in the T20 World Cup history, so far, and Pakistan triumphed in four matches, while New Zealand has managed to win two.
