|Time:||02:00 PM (GMT)|
|Venue:||Dubai Stadium, Dubai|
|Toss:||Pakistan, Bowling 1st|
Pitch Report: The deck has that off-white/khaki colour, and the experts on TV are suggesting that this is a “great” pitch with something for both batters and bowlers. It is the centre pitch, so the boundary sizes are even throughout.
It is toss time and Ravi Shastri is hyped on the mic. Shanaka flips the coin, Babar says “tail”, and it is tails! Pakistan will bowl first.
Babar Azam: “Our confidence level is high. As a team you want to reach the final and win it. As a team, we have played very well. Every match we’ve had a new Man of the Match, everyone has stepped up. No injuries. Shadab and Naseem back, for Usman and Hasan.
Dasun Shanaka: “We would’ve bowled as well, but happy to bat first since it is the final. We’ve been playing some good cricket… want to continue that. Biggest positive has been that the batsmen have stood up, especially the openers. Madushanka and Maheesh have been great too, good cricket before the World Cup. The record has been good for us in the final and we are looking forward another championship. Same team.”
