Pakistan emerged victorious against Ireland in a low-scoring encounter, successfully chasing a mere 107-run target. However, this win was bittersweet as it marked the end of Pakistan’s disappointing campaign at the T20 World Cup 2024.

During Pakistan’s run-chase, the Irish managed to pick up quick wickets later in the innings. However, the individual brilliance of Babar Azam and Shaheen Afridi shone through as they led the team to victory over the winless Irish side at the tournament.

Notably, the match was decided in the second last over, with Shaheen Afridi playing a pivotal role in leading Pakistan to victory with a six. Pakistan faced challenges during their chase, with early wickets falling, but they ultimately prevailed.

Babar Azam led from the front as the top-scorer for the winning side, contributing 32 crucial runs. However, Pakistan’s middle-order faltered, struggling to make significant contributions to the run chase.

In the first innings, the Pakistani bowlers displayed a dominant performance, with Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, and Wasim starring with the ball. Their relentless efforts, particularly Shaheen’s early breakthroughs, set the tone for the innings, while the rest of the bowling lineup maintained the pressure on the Irish batters.

Despite a commendable 44-run partnership towards the end of their innings, Ireland concluded at 106/9 in 20 overs. Pakistani bowlers, particularly Shaheen and Imad, made significant contributions, while Amir and Haris Rauf also played their part in limiting Ireland’s total.

Both Pakistan and Ireland exited the tournament with this match, failing to secure a spot in the Super 8 stage, marking the end of their T20 World Cup 2024 journey.
