Credit to Pakistan. Few teams would have defended 137 the way they did. Best bowling team.

Pakistan team had qualified for the finals after beating New Zealand, and England cruised to the finals by defeating the Men in Blue. However, England landed victorious to lift the T20 World Cup trophy in the 2022 edition.
England skipper, Buttler, during the post-match presentation, said,
“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.”
Meanwhile, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, at the post-match presentation ceremony, added,
“Congratulations to England, they deserve to be champions and fought well. We felt at home here, and 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 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 is part of the game.”
Pakistani fans wanted to witness history repeating itself by winning the finals at the same venue after 1992 but failed, as the team registered a low score of 137. England once again clinched the victory without even playing all the overs.
