It was indeed a sensational performance from Pakistan in the knockout game against New Zealand on Wednesday in the first Semi Final of the ICC T20 World Cup.
This was the fourth time that both the teams faces each other in a world cup semi-final.
And the target of 153 set by the black caps while batting first wasn’t enough to break Pakistan’s jinx in the World Cup semi-final!
Pakistan has booked its place in the final to be played at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground aka MCG on Sunday, Nov 13, opposite the top dog of the semi-final between India and England.
Pakistan will be playing its third T20 World Cup final since its inception in 2007.
Well, congratulations are in order for the green for providing the nation a moment to cherish and recall old memories from the 1992 world cup.
