Sunil Gavaskar’s T20 World Cup finalists
Sunil Gavaskar and Tom Moody had chosen their finalist favorites before the start of the second round.
In his list of predictions for the two sides who would go to the 2022 World Cup final, former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has revealed his picks. Gavaskar declared that he thinks India and Australia will be in the two finals while appearing on Star Sports prior to the warm-up game between Australia and India. Without a question, India, and because I’m in Australia, I’ll say Australia, he responded.
All-rounder Tom Moody from Australia made the decision to add his forecasts as well. Pakistan, England, India, and Australia will likely be the top four, according to Moody.
Moody stated, “I’m going to give you the top four. Australia and England will advance from their groups. I believe Pakistan and India would be leading the other group. For the finalists, I have to select Australia and India.”
Australia lost to India in the four warm-up matches the teams have played thus far, but England defeated Pakistan handily.
On October 23, India and Pakistan will play one other at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to kick off their World Cup campaigns.
