After India’s men’s cricket team fell to England by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final in Adelaide, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif made a playful jab at them. 

When discussing the lineup for Sunday’s final in Melbourne, Shehbaz Sharif made reference to India’s lopsided losses to England in the 2022  semi-final and Pakistan in 2021 by 10 wickets in the Super 12 in the last T20 World Cup.

On Sunday, November 13, the T20 World Cup final at Melbourne Cricket will feature England and Pakistan, the only two teams that have defeated India by 10 wickets.

“So, this Sunday, it’s, 152/0 vs 170/0,” after India’s semifinal defeat to England, Sharif stated in a tweet.

Team India’s trophy drought at ICC competitions continued on Thursday when they were eliminated from the T20 World Cup finals following a humiliating 10-wicket loss to England in the second semifinal of the competition at the Adelaide Oval.

As England’s openers, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, stitched a record 170-run stand, closing up the chase with four overs to spare, the Indian attack was unable to break through in their defence of 169.

India was the only side to ever suffer a 10-wicket defeat in a T20 World Cup match, and this was just the second time they had done so. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, Pakistan’s opening duo, put together a 152-run partnership in their World Cup debut in Dubai the previous year, helping Pakistan defeat India by 10 wickets.

The Pakistani prime minister tweeted that the final will be between the two teams that have defeated India by 10 wickets, which served to remind India’s supporters of that sad loss.
