England’s former Test captain Joy Root has termed the Pakistan team as dangerous and said that there are excellent players in Pakistan.
The statement of the former English captain has come at a time when the final match of the T20 World Cup is going to be played between the teams of Pakistan and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Talking to a foreign sports channel, Joy Root said that ‘Pakistan team has some excellent bowlers and batsmen along with some excellent match winners’.
Talking about Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, Joy Root said that both the players have been playing consistently in this format for a long time.
He said that Pakistan is a dangerous team with excellent players while England will have to get their team right for the finals.
The former England captain said that England had peaked at the right time with an incredible performance in the semi-finals, which was England’s best ever.
He added that Jos Buttler and Alex Hales had a disastrous performance against India, but as a team it would be better to perform in a pressure match like a semi-final.
It should be noted that Pakistan has qualified for the final by defeating New Zealand by 7 wickets in the first semi-final, while England has reached the final by defeating India by 10 wickets in the second semi-final.
