Melbourne: England has won the T20 World Cup. In a spectacular cut-throat game, Pakistan fought hard but failed to win the finale of the tournament.
The way Pakistan defended their total of just 137 runs has put out an example of how it should be done. Cricket expert Harsha Bhogle went on to say that no other team might have defended it like you did.
Credit to Pakistan. Few teams would have defended 137 the way they did. Best bowling team.
