Melbourne: Just one ball this time saw England giving away the World Cup. Because this one ball turned out to be lucky for England and that was the turning point of this T20 World Cup.
akistan kept the England batsmen in check with accurate and penetrating strikes. Pakistan had dismissed four batsmen. Pakistan had the best chance of winning the match at that time. Had the England team got only one wicket then, they could have won the match. Such an opportunity had come to Pakistan. But the Pakistan team could not make the gold of this opportunity.
This thing happened in the 16th over. Iftikhar Ahmed was bowling this time. It was seen that this happened on the third ball of the over. Ben Stokes takes a big hit off this third ball. He missed his timing while hitting the shot and now it looked like his catch was about to be caught. Pakistan captain Babar Azam was rushing forward to catch the ball at that time. But Babar did not pick up much pace this time. So he couldn’t get to the ball. If Babar had run a little faster he could have taken this catch and the match would have turned around. Because if Ben Stokes had been dismissed at that time the match would have tilted in Pakistan’s favour. But that didn’t happen. Therefore, it was seen that this was the turning point of this final.
England neutralized Pakistan in the bowling this time. Sam Curran was the highest wicket-taker for England this time with three wickets while Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan supported him well with two wickets. Ben Stokes managed to get a wicket this time. Ben Stokes then scored an unbeaten half-century and this time it was seen that he turned the match in England’s Favour
