Pakistan captain Babar Azam also admitted in the pre-match press conference that it will be a tough challenge for him in the final and his team will have to give their best.
Babar said: “England is a good team, they have many good players and they have fast bowlers and batsmen. So we will do our best to carry out our plans and wait for the match.”

Babar Azam wants his team to continue their winning streak. They have lost their opening matches to India and Zimbabwe in the trip so far, after which they came back strong and won four games in a row. Pakistan reached the final with a stunning seven-wicket win over New Zealand in the semi-finals. The Pakistan captain wants to continue that consistency in the title match as well.
Babar said: “We lost the first two matches but the way we came back in the last four we did very well. We played cricket really well in the last four and we are looking to keep this pace in the final. We will try.”
Babar Azam said his boys play like lions and amid the support of the Pakistani fans at the MCG the team players will attack the England national team in the same way.
