England’s T-20 History
England cricket team has a long and storied history in T-20 cricket, having been one of the founding nations of the format back in 2003. They’ve won the T-20 World Cup twice, in 2010 and 2012, and were runners-up in 2009. They also reached the semi-finals of the 2014 tournament, but lost to eventual champions Sri Lanka.
England’s T-20 record is excellent overall, winning 71% of their matches. They are particularly strong at home, with a 76% win rate. In recent years, they have struggled somewhat in the format away from home, winning just 42% of their matches since 2016.
The England team is packed with high quality players, many of whom have been extremely successful in the T-20 format. Players like Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali have all starred for England in recent years, while new captain Joe Root is also a very talented player.
England will be looking to make it three T-20 World Cup wins in four tournaments when they take on India in the semi-finals of this year’s competition. It promises to be a thrilling match between two strong teams, and one that England will be confident of winning.
The Final of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 would be hosted by the Melbourne Cricket Ground located in Yarra Park, Melbourne, Victoria. It was built in 1853.
It has a huge capacity of 100000 people. The first international match hosted by this stadium was a test match that was played between England and Australia in 1877 and the 1st ODI played here was in 1971. The stadium will host 3 matches of the Men’s T20 World Cup in total. It also hosted the 1992 World Cup and 2015 ODI World Cup.
The 22-yards at the MCG is believed to be one of the most fierce surfaces in the world. It provides a fine balance between bat and ball. While the bowlers get some assistance early on with mostly genuine bounce, as it gets old, the batsmen can play their strokes freely. Drop-in pitches have been used in MCG since 1996.
As far as the history is concerned, 18 T20I matches have been played here thus far and the team bowling first has won 10while the team batting first has won 7. The average 1st inning score is 139 while for the 2nd inning it’s 127. We can conclude that team batting first has more chances of winning. The highest total recorded here is 184. MCG is known to be one of the difficult pitches to play on. It favours pacers in the starting overs and offers too much bounce.
151 ODI matches have been played in this Stadium upto now and 74 were won by the team batting first while 73 by the team batting second. In the ODI format, team batting 1st gets the advantage here.
The last Men’s T20 World was won by Australia in 2021. They are the current trophy holders. The 2021 T20 World Cup was held in UAE. India was supposed to host the 2021 T20 World cup but couldn’t do so due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the country and there was fear that the tournament might get affected by it. So they shifted it to the UAE. The New Zealand team was the runner up of that World Cup as they lost to Australia in the final.
