Pietersen goes against 'world of cricket' with T20 World Cup final prediction

With the semi-finals of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 set to begin from Wednesday, fans and experts have begun to share their predictions for the mouth-watering clashes.

In the first semi-final, New Zealand face resurgent Pakistan on Wednesday, at the SCG in Sydney.

Meanwhile, favourites India take on England on Thursday, at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

Many predictions have pointed towards India vs Pakistan final, but former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen doesn't think so.

The legendary batter feels that there is 'a very good chance' that it's going to be between England and Pakistan in the final.

Pietersen said, "I think the world of cricket wants to see Pakistan take on India in the final, but there's a very good chance it's going to be England v Pakistan."

"At the Adelaide Oval, I think England beat India. With the quality running through the England side, I really do. But I just need Virat to have a day off", he further added.

Pietersen also labelled Sam Curran as England's key player in the ongoing tournament, and felt that he is 'fulfilling that role beautifully'.

"I'm a great advocate of having one, if not two of those guys in your T20 side, and Sam Curran is fulfilling that role beautifully for England."
