On Saturday, Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam urged his team to capitalize on its recent string of four victories by winning the Twenty20 World Cup final. The 2009 champions lost to India and Zimbabwe on the final ball to begin their tournament. But they recovered to get to Sunday’s final against England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Babar Azam spoke in Press Conference

We’ve lost our first two games. But the way we’ve recovered in our subsequent four games has been excellent, Azam stated at the pre-game press conference. I’m more thrilled than anxious. There is no denying that there is pressure, but we can only overcome it by having faith in ourselves. And doing so is crucial for getting good results.

Jos Buttler’s England is the small underdogs against Pakistan. But Azam is counting on the potency of his fast bowlers to give Pakistan the upper hand. Especially during the six-over powerplay. He claimed that England’s [10-wicket] victory over India to advance to the finals was evidence that they are a competitive squad. In order to win the finals, our strategy is to keep to our plan and rely on our pace attack.

The contest will depend on making the most of the powerplay to take as many wickets as possible, he continued. Pakistan is expected to select the same lineup, with Shaheen Shah Afridi leading a threatening attack. And Azam and Mohammad Rizwan led the batting, notwithstanding any late injuries.

When Pakistan played India early in the tournament, the MCG was filled with more than 90,000 spectators. And they have had strong support everywhere they have played in Australia. People inspire us, and it’s encouraging to see that whenever we visit any stadium. They show up and cheer for the Pakistani squad, he said.
