T20 World Cup 2022 is to be played in Australia. This tournament will be played at the end of this year in the month of October-November, but the discussions about this big tournament are very intense in the cricket world from now on. Recently, former Australia captain Ricky Ponting had revealed the names of the final two teams and the champion team of the T20 World Cup while predicting and now the name of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has also been added to this episode.
Yes, former Pakistan star Shahid Afridi has also predicted the names of the two teams, which according to him will be seen playing the final of the T20 World Cup this year. Shahid Afridi revealed the names of the finalist teams while talking to Sama TV. He said, ‘You take Pakistan and Australia from my side.’ You can hear Afridi himself from his mouth in his prediction video at 40 minutes 26 seconds.
Let us tell you that before Shahid Afridi, Ricky Ponting had told hosts Australia and Rohit Sharma-led Indian team as finalists of T20 World Cup this year. Ricky Ponting went a step ahead and clearly said that Australia and India will play the final and Australia will win the title by defeating India in the final.
It is worth noting that India’s performance in T20 World Cup 2021 i.e. last T20 World Cup was very disappointing. During that time, under the leadership of Virat Kohli, the Indian team could not even qualify in the semi-finals of the tournament. At the same time, Pakistan played very good cricket in the World Cup last year, but it was knocked out of the tournament after losing by 5 wickets to Australia in the semi-finals.
