England all-rounder Ben Stokes has predicted his two finalists for the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. He picked England and Pakistan to take on each other in the final of the showpiece ICC event in Dubai on November 14.

Stokes posted the tweet after Pakistan defeated Afghanistan in their third match of the Super 12 stage. They won the match by 5 wickets to secure their third consecutive win in the tournament.

Pakistan have already defeated arch-rivals India and New Zealand. On the other hand, England are also looking strong with two wins in the two matches they have played in the Super 12 phase.

Stokes’ tweet read,“England vs Pakistan Final?”. England will face Australia in their third match in Dubai and the winner will almost seal their place in the semi-final.

England have beaten West Indies and Bangladesh in the tournament so far. After Australia, they will play against Sri Lanka and South Africa.

The prediction of Stokes didn’t go well with Indian cricket team fans. India have played only 1 match in the Super 12 which they lost against Pakistan. They will have to win their remaining matches, and especially against New Zealand to boost their chances for the semi-final.
