‘India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup Final – Loading’: Social media goes berserk over possibility of showpiece clash | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: With the 4 semi-finalists New Zealand and England from Group 1 and India and Pakistan from Group 2 confirmed for the 2022 T20 World Cup knockouts, will be nothing short of a blockbuster in Australia this coming week.
ICC‘s marquee event over the past 4 weeks Down Under has been an absolute thriller that has seen epic battles between top teams from around the world. From defending champions Australia failing to qualify for the semi-finals to Pakistan making a shock entry into the knockouts on the final day of the Super 12 stage, the tournament has providing edge of the seat entertainment and still providing surprises.
When the Dutch achieved a miraculous victory over South Africa, it paved the way for Pakistan to qualify for the semi-finals, even after their shock defeat to minnows Zimbabwe earlier in the tournament. Pakistan beat Bangladesh in their last group match to finish second behind India in the group.
With the semi-final schedule now confirmed, Pakistan now face New Zealand in the first semi-final on November 9 in Sydney, while India face England in the second semi-final on November 10 in Adelaide. And that essentially opens up a possibility of a blockbuster India vs Pakistan final in Melbourne on November 13.
If India and Pakistan win their semi-finals against England and New Zealand respectively, the arch-rivals will clash for the T20 World Cup title next Sunday at one of the world’s most iconic venues. Both teams have won the title once in the past. India won the first edition in 2007, while Pakistan won the very next edition in 2009.
This possibility of an India vs Pakistan final took social media by storm on Sunday after Pakistan’s surprise qualification for the knockouts. From memes to fans salivating over the chances of another epic India-Pakistan battle, the fans have started visualizing another chapter being added to this epic rivalry.
Here’s a look at some reactions on Twitter about the possibility of another clash between India and Pakistan, and that too in the final of a World Cup:

India and Pakistan had earlier faced each other in the tournament in this edition on October 23 in Melbourne, which turned out to be one of the best T20 encounters of all time, with India beating the arch-rivals largely thanks to a Virat Kohli special.
