    ENG win by 5 wickets

    England have done it. They are the 2022 T20 World Champions. They have held their nerves, all thanks to Stokes and Moeen, who batted out the tricky phase after the drinks break. This will feel so good for Ben Stokes, who once again showed that he is a big match player. So, England have become the first team in history to hold both, 50 over and 20 over World Cup at the same time. It's a heartbreak for Pakistan and their fans, who kept believing that this World Cup was a photostat of the 1992 ODI World Cup for them. Not to be today. But they showed a wonderful fight in defending 137 against a dominant batting attack. It showed, rightly why that their bowling attack is one of the best. Jos Buttler and co. dances in joy. They were good with the ball and good with the bat and won the contest in the second last over by 5 wickets. It was a pleasure brining this to you. Hope you enjoyed it as well. I Varun Malik, sign off, take care, Ta ta.
