The first semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 will be played in Sydney on 9 November 2022. We now stand at the end of the T20 World Cup 2022 as Pakistan play against New Zealand in the first semi-final on Wednesday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Pakistan may have a slight advantage in the T20 World Cup semi-finals – as they recently won a T20I series in New Zealand, with the hosts reaching the final. When Pakistan won the World Cup in Australia in 1992, he was disappointed after his first few matches, which India lost. Then miracles happened in rain in a game where they were all out for 74, with some results going in their favor and some outstanding individual performances towards the backend. By its end at the MCG, Pakistan had won the World Cup under the captaincy of Imran Khan.
