How to watch England vs Pakistan for free! Cricket’s T20 World Cup Final takes place on Sunday and you can watch it live on free TV in the UK or stream online. Here’s all the details.
England have reached the T20 (or Twenty20) World Cup Final in Australia, recovering from some early tournament struggles to go all the way. Following a dominant victory over much-fancied India in the semi-finals during midweek, it’s onto Sunday’s final.
Joe Buttler’s team will be hoping for a first T20 World Cup success since England lifted the trophy in 2010. Central to the efforts will be the bat of the skipper and his opening partner Alex Hales, who put on 170 for the opening wicket in the routing of India.
Now, Pakistan stand in the way of a famous World Cup triumph. However, England may be without star bowler Mark Wood, who is struggling with fitness ahead of Sunday’s final. If that’s the case, all-rounder Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran and Adil Rashid will again do the (three) lion’s share of the bowling.
England are the favourites to lift the trophy, but anything can happen in T20 cricket, as we’ve seen plenty of times throughout the tournament.
