By India Today Web Desk: All-rounder Moeen Ali was overjoyed after England beat Pakistan in the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 on Sunday, November 13 at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. With the Three Lions needing seven runs to win off the last two overs, Moeen got out to Mohammad Wasim Jr, but the dismissal didn’t make much of a difference.
England chased down 138 with six balls to spare as Jos Buttler became the second skipper after Paul Collingwood to take England to victory in a T20 World Cup.
Moeen, who scored 19 runs off 12 balls with three fours, said that it was the best day of his entire cricket career.
“It’s one of the best days of my cricketing career. As a team, we’ve deserved it over a long period of time. It was about keeping my intent, if I was going to get out it was to get out being positive,” Moeen was quoted as saying after the match.
Bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes was also delighted after England won their maiden T20I at the MCG after four defeats against Australia and Ireland. In the T20 World Cup, the British team earlier lost to Andrew Balbirnie’s Ireland by five runs (DLS Method.
“Lost a lot of games in Australia to win here at the MCG… amazing. The wicket offered a bit to the quicks, but the occasion played into that, gets the better of people, but we got over the line.”
Ben Stokes stayed unbeaten on 52 runs off 49 balls and took the Three Lions over the finish line.
