Sports Desk: There is a good chance of rain in the final match in Melbourne today (Sunday). But not the rain, keeping in mind the closing ceremony, the match was tossed earlier.

England captain Jos Buttler has decided to field after winning the toss. Babar Azam's Pakistan will bat first.

There was a possibility of rain in this match from the previous day. But that possibility has decreased a lot. Melbourne skies are looking pretty clear for now. But nature changes colors frequently. So the possibility of rain cannot be ruled out yet.  

Both Pakistan and England have won the T20 World Cup once before. In 2009, Pakistan won the title in England, England took home the title in the next tournament (2010) held in West Indies. In other words, the second title is in the hands of both teams.

Pakistan XI:
Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Haris, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi
England XI:
Jos Buttler (captain/ wicketkeeper), Alex Hales, Philip Salt, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid
