England are cricket’s white-ball kings after winning the T20 World Cup final, defeating a gallant Pakistan by five wickets in front of 80,462 fans at the MCG.
Stokes powers England to another World Cup
England have stamped themselves cricket’s white-ball kings after withstanding Pakistan’s fearsome pace attack to win the T20 World Cup final by five wickets at the MCG.
Star allrounder Ben Stokes once again proved himself the ultimate big-game player, steering England home with six balls to spare in the face of Pakistan’s fast-bowling brilliance.
Stokes hit the winning run to finish unbeaten on 52 and ensure England claimed their second T20 World Cup title and first since 2010.
They are the first team to hold the ODI and T20 World Cups at the same time after their memorable win over New Zealand in the 2019 50-over final at Lord’s.
