Once deemed all but out of the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finals race, Pakistan earned a bonus ticket to the last four, courtesy of Netherlands’ triumph over South Africa in the Super 12s.
Pakistan then defeated New Zealand in the semi-finals before suffering a defeat at the hands of England in the final. While Pakistan do have a runners-up medal to their name in the tournament, their former player Mohammad Amir doesn’t feel the team deserved to even qualify for the final.
“The fact that we played in the final is a big thing. We didn’t deserve to play in the final. The whole world knows how we advanced to the final. Allah helped us reach there. You will get to know the results if you look at the performance of our batters. Once we got out of Sydney, it was given that this would happen,” Amir said.
“I told you earlier that if the pitch at MCG is the same as it was in the first match, Pakistan will struggle and we did. After winning the toss, we got off to a good start and we knew how the conditions were,” he added.
