Shane Watson on India vs Pakistan Final Clash

Apart from cricket fans, many cricket experts start to feel the heat of the arch-rival clash in the ICC event’s final. Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is not an exception in the list.

India and Pakistan have already clashed once in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022 group stages where Virat Kohli smashed his one of the finest knocks of his T20I career and led India to win the match.

India will now play their ICC T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final match against England on November 10 in Adelaide Oval, Adelaide. The first semi-final match will be played between New Zealand and Pakistan on November 9 in Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.

Pakistan gained their semi-finals spot post South Africa lost the match against the Netherlands in their last group match.

“Everyone would love to see Pakistan and India in the final,” an excited Watson was quoted as saying by the official website of the event.

“I unfortunately missed that first (Super 12) game at the MCG, as I commentated the game previously between Australia and New Zealand,” Watson said he knows what he missed and would love to see a re-match.

“But from all reports, all the people that went along to that game said it was something very special and the game was obviously an amazing game to watch on TV as well. They played in the T20 World Cup final in 2007 and everyone would love to see it again,” he said.

New Zealand look a settled side with a smooth run while Pakistan have huffed and puffed to the semifinals.

However, Watson feels Pakistan will be a dangerous side in the semifinals.

“There are certain times in all tournaments where a team just falls across the line and somehow finds its way into the finals and then goes on to win it,” Watson noted.

“Especially when they weren’t expecting to make the semis because of the way they played at certain times throughout this tournament.

“The freedom they are going to have after not expecting much in the middle of the tournament, so the freedom they are going to have is going to be very dangerous for the Kiwis,” he said.

The final match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will be played on November 13 at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne.
