T20 World Cup 2022: Joe Root, a former test captain for the England National Cricket Team, has warned Team England that Team Pakistan is “extremely dangerous” and that they must be at the top of their game to win the T20 World Cup in 2022.
The Men in Green and the Three Lions will square off in the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup final. On Sunday, November 13, the thrilling match is scheduled to take place at Melbourne.
In the opening semi-final on Wednesday at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Pakistan defeated New Zealand by seven wickets to advance as the first team to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final.
Additionally, on Thursday, England defeated India by 10 wickets in the second semifinal at the Adelaide Oval, thanks to the utter destruction of Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, securing a meeting with Pakistan in the championship match.
Joe Root praised the Men in Green in an interview with Sky Sports, claiming that the team has “some terrific match-winners.” They have some excellent match-winners on their side, as well as some excellent bowlers and highly talented batsmen.
There was a lot of talk about the two men at the top, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, and how reliable they had been in this format for a while.
They have some fantastic players, so you know they are a very dangerous squad. You need to make sure you are at the top of your game in the big final, he continued.

Pakistan nearly had to take a trip back to Karachi after losing their first two games in back-to-back fashion. From their final four games, even a single defeat would have eliminated them. Pakistan didn’t automatically advance to the semifinals despite winning all of these games. In Group 2, the Netherlands’ victory over South Africa required a special upset to create more opportunities.
England: Jos Buttler (c & wk), Alex Hales, Philip Salt, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali. Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid.
The victory over powerful India in the semi-finals will give England a lot of momentum and confidence going into Melbourne. Since he returned to the national team, Alex Hales has appeared to be in excellent shape. Additionally reliable as an opener, Jos Butler has taken the team by the horns. The middle order can be vulnerable to Harry Brook. His most recent three scores were 4 (five), 7 (3), and 18. Furthermore, these performances took place at 3 and 4.
