In the history of cricket, England is the only side to ever hold both the One-Day International and Twenty20 World Cups at the same time. This was accomplished by England after they triumphed against Pakistan in the championship game of the Twenty20 World Cup 2022. Prior to this, England had won the One-Day International World Cup in 2019 by claiming victory over New Zealand while Eoin Morgan served as their skipper.

At the thrilling match that took place between England and Pakistan on the 13th of November at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, England. After Pakistan’s batting struggled in the first innings, the renowned Melbourne Cricket Ground held off the threat of rain and hosted a stunning match on Sunday. The game saw an astonishing recovery by Pakistan’s fast bowlers after their batting struggled in the first innings.

In the championship match, Pakistan’s pacers put up a valiant effort to defend only 138 runs, but they were unable to stop all-rounder Ben Stokes from scoring runs. Stokes, who was also England’s hero in the 2019 World Cup, produced a half-century in the final, which led to his country winning their second Twenty20 World Cup championship. Stokes was England’s hero in the 2019 World Cup.

England, following in the footsteps of the West Indies, became only the second team in the history of the T20 World Cup to win two titles. The West Indies were the first team to accomplish this feat.
