Babar Azam wants his team to continue their winning streak. They had lost their two opening matches against India and Zimbabwe in the journey so far, after which they came back strongly and won four matches in a row.

Babar said, “We have lost the first two matches but the way we have come back in the last four matches, we have done very well. We have played good cricket in the last four matches and we are looking to maintain that pace in the final. Will try.”
Babar Azam said that his boys are playing like lions and amidst the support of Pakistani fans at the MCG, the players of the team will attack the England team in the same manner.
