T20 World Cup 2022 Final Pakistan vs England MCG Weather Forecast, Pitch Report: Alright, the month-long wait to get the new world T20I champion is now about to end as world cricket is set to witness the epic clash between Pakistan and England in the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 on 13th November 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Both England and Pakistan have their fair share of struggles throughout the tournament. While Pakistan required all the good luck to storm into the semi-finals, England stitched a series of victories to get their knockout match berth.
It only required lion-hearted efforts to make a comeback following two early defeats against India and Zimbabwe, but Pakistan kept their nerves and successfully got into the semis. The Men in Green redeemed itself after a humiliating defeat against Zimbabwe and thrashed heavyweight, South Africa, Netherlands and Bangladesh on the bounce.
On the other side, England also faced embarrassment and criticism after they succumbed against minnows Ireland in their second match of the tournament. However, that defeat didn’t affect them much as they made a turn-around by outclassing New Zealand and Sri Lanka in the final two matches. Not to forget, one of their match against Australia was abandoned and it eventually boiled down to the effective net run rate.

If anyhow match proceeds, the seamers are going to have a good outing. The overcast conditions will allow pacers to swing the ball upfront. Moreover, there will be good bounce and carry for the bowlers. The square boundaries and big, but the straightish boundaries are a tad short. Batters will look to exploit this. The average first innings total at MCG remains in the vicinity of 150-160. Bowling first will be a favorable decision for the team that wins the toss.
