England lifted their second T20 World Cup after they defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets in the final in Melbourne. The English team chased down 138 after Ben Stokes scored an unbeaten 52.
WHO SAID WHAT?
Jos Buttler | England captain: It is (the icing on the cake). To win the T20 World Cup now, immensely proud of everyone here. It has been a long journey and few changes but we are reaping the rewards of how we have played in the last few years. It’s been a fantastic tournament. We went to Pakistan before coming here, which was a valuable time for the group and this felt a long way after the Ireland match but the character we showed from thereon in must-win games is amazing. He (Matty Motts) has fitted in really well. We have got a few Australians in the coaching staff with us in this tournament and he has led the coaching staff really well, gives the players great freedom. Huge swing in the game, that was a fantastic over from Adil. He has been outstanding for us in the last three games, just the guy who makes things happen and his performance was outstanding. When you hit the right length there was a little bit of movement and they were obviously bowling at a good pace, not easy at all. We managed to get away to a start which controlled the run-rate and we bat deep as well. And that man again, Ben Stokes is there at the end. He is the ultimate competitor in anything he does and has the experience to bank on as well. He timed it perfectly, the impetus that he and Moeen Ali had just took it away from Pakistan.
Team Pakistan 🇵🇰 fought back hard & brave. Great bowling performance. But England 🏴 played better today. We are proud of our boys in green for making it to the final match of this mega tournament. 👏— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) November 13, 2022
Babar Azam as a captain has achieved more for Pakistan than what combine Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli has achieved for India. #T20WorldCup— Arfa Feroz Zake (@ArfaSays_) November 13, 2022
Lesson from this World T20: Pakistan can't win Cup by just bowling, India can't win Cup by just batting. England has batters, spinners, pacers, fielders, and luck— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) November 13, 2022

Fantastic achievement. 👏🏻
It was a closely fought final and would’ve been even more interesting had Afridi not been injured.

Babar Azam | Pakistan captain: Congratulations to England, they deserve to be champions and fought well. We felt like home here, got great support at every venue. Thanks for your support. Yes, we lost the first two games but how we came in the last four games was incredible. I just told the boys to play our natural game, but we fell 20 runs short and the boys fought well with the ball. Our bowling is one of the best attacks in the world. Unfortunately Shaheen’s injury put us off, but that’s part of the game.
