Pakistan has a history of winning and losing to teams all over the world.
However, we typically thrive in nail-biting comeback victories.
After being humiliated by New Zealand and England over their unwillingness to tour Pakistan in 2021, nothing would be sweeter than a come-from-behind win in the ICC T20 World Cup.
