A rejuvenated Pakistan lifted their game when it mattered the most and stormed into the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 with a comprehensive seven-wicket win over New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Wednesday.

After the Black Caps won the toss and opted to bat, the Men in Green first restricted Kane Williamson & Co. to 152 for four on a sluggish SCG surface and then chased down the set total with consummate ease. Captain Babar Azam and wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan hit attacking half-centuries, giving their side a flying start.

Pakistan eventually reached the finish line in 19.1 overs and booked a place in the final after 13 years. This will be their third appearance in the T20 World Cup finals. They finished as runners-up in the inaugural edition in 2007 before sealing the trophy two years later.

Here is how the cricket fraternity reacted to Pakistan’s victory:
