The 2022 is now heading towards its culmination and this is the last game before the final of the event on Sunday. Unfortunately, this game will have no bearing on the outcome of the tournament apart from the fact that the two teams can iron out the mistakes if there are any before they reach the final. 

While sprung a surprise as they came back after their first defeat at the hands of Afghanistan and chased down a record 184 against Bangladesh to make it to the Super Four of the tournament. Then, again they chased a record 176 at Sharjah against Afghanistan and announced that they have entered the Super Four to compete and not to be a meagre spectator. However, it was their victory against the strong Indian team that made them the real challengers for an title after a long time. 

on the other hand have had a mixed bag of a tournament. They were beaten by India in a close encounter in teh first match and they defeated Hong Kong by a great margin of 155 runs. In their first Super Four encounter, they chased down 181 against India with relatable ease as well. In the very next game, Afghanistan almost beat them, but for Naseem Shah to rescue the team with his two sixes and win the game by just one wicket while chasing down 130. 

Thus the two teams, who have come along two very different paths and seek the same target will get a look at each other in this game and prepare better for the showdown.
