‘India-Pakistan final could have been bigger but….’: Former players rally behind India after England drubbing in semis | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: The cricket fans’ wish across the globe of watching the India versus Pakistan final in the T20 World Cup dealt a massive blow with England making it to the summit clash.
Chasing 169, England handed India a 10-wicket drubbing in the second semifinal at Adelaide Oval on Thursday to set up the final clash against Pakistan scheduled to be held on Sunday at the MCG.
It will be a repeat of the 1992 ODI World Cup final between both the teams where Pakistan emerged victorious against England. England, who won the 50-over World Cup on home soil in 2019, can now become the first team to hold both global trophies in white-ball cricket.
England will also be seeking their second T20 World Cup title, after 2010. Pakistan’s only title came a year earlier at Lord’s.
As soon as the match got over, the former players took to Twitter to post morale boosting messages for India after their humiliating defeat against England.
