ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 11th Warm-up Match 

On the 11th game of the T20 World Cup warm-ups, England and Pakistan will lock horns in the 11th game between these two teams. It is widely believed that both teams will be among the top contenders at the ICC T20 World Cup this year. In the semi-finals of last year's tournament, England lost to New Zealand, while Pakistan lost to the eventual champions Australia at the same stage. In the recent T20I tri-series against Bangladesh and New Zealand, Pakistan won. It is hard to predict which outcome of this match is going to be due to the vagaries of T20 cricket and the inconsistent nature of Pakistan.

England's sweeping batting display destroyed Pakistan's team by 6 wickets. Without Babar and Rizwan, it was always going to be difficult for the Men in Green, and the rest of the team hasn't exactly shone either. There were hardly any encouraging signs for Pakistan, despite Masood's strong start. When defending 160, you'd expect their bowling offense to put up a fight, but that wasn't the case. With his two overs upon returning, Shaheen was remarkable, and Wasim continued to play in excellent form. Nevertheless, that was it! The expense of Nawaz, Shadab, Hasnain, and Naseem all proved to be rather high.

After his success with both the bat and the ball, only Mohammad Wasim can stand tall. Ben Stokes' explosive three-wicket performance gave the England innings some momentum after the Pakistani bowlers had bowled out both of the openers for England. With exception of Pakistan, their middle order came through, with Livingstone, Brook, and Curran putting the finishing touches on the game. Jos Buttler was not even involved in today's game. There are several advantages for England, notably the most dangerous hitters' welcome return to form. However, following a loss like this, Pakistan will need to pick themselves up swiftly and go on.
