ICCT20WCFINAL: Former India batsman Robin Uthappa has termed Pakistan as the most unpredictable team in the world, but it also has a lot of potential. He said that due to this unique feature, it is difficult to comment on how the team will perform in the T20 World Cup 2022 final against England.
Pakistan’s unpredictability is visible even during the ongoing T20 World Cup. They started the tournament by losing to India and Zimbabwe. Facing elimination, they won their next three matches and advanced to the semi-finals with the help of the Netherlands, who defeated South Africa.
In the semi-final against New Zealand in Sydney on Wednesday, 9 November, Babar Azam & Co made a clinical effort to beat the Kiwis by seven wickets to book their place in the final.
Sharing his thoughts on Pakistan’s prospects in the ICCT20WCFINAL, Uthappa told IndiNews:
“I have always believed that Pakistan is the most unpredictable team in the world with a huge amount of potential. They have high quality bowlers in reserve as well. But in reality this team is unpredictable. It has always been. “Before the semis, I said it is a New Zealand party, but Pakistan can spoil anyone’s party. They have that kind of ability within that group.”
Electing to bowl first after losing the toss in the semi-finals, Pakistan restricted New Zealand to 152/4. After this, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam scored half-centuries as Pakistan won by seven wickets.
“If there is anyone who can beat England, it is Pakistan” – Robin Uthappa
While discussing the prospects of the two ICCT20WCFINAL, Uthappa picked England as the favourites, but reiterated that Pakistan have a team to win if they play to their potential. This former cricketer said:
“England is going as the favourites, but if there is anyone who can beat England, it is Pakistan. On the basis of form and pace, England is likely to win, but you can’t say anything about Pakistan. Just look at this World Cup. They could not chase down the target of 130 against Zimbabwe.
“It is very difficult to predict how Pakistan will play. But I definitely think England are the favorites to go to the finals.”
While Pakistan outperformed the Kiwis in the first semi-final in Sydney, England beat India by 10 wickets in the second semi-final in Adelaide on Thursday, November 10.
