Pakistan beat Ireland in T20 World Cup final

In their final match of the 2024 T20 World Cup, which was contested on Sunday at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida, Pakistan beat Ireland. The Irish encountered difficulties during the Green Shirts’ run-chase; however, they made progress by securing fast wickets later in the innings.

Nevertheless, Babar Azam and his team successfully accomplished the modest 107-run objective against the opponents, who were unable to secure a victory at the mega-tournament. The low-scoring match was ultimately resolved in the second-to-last over, when Shaheen Afridi hit a six to propel Pakistan over the finish line and conclude their disappointing T20 World Cup campaign.

Pakistan’s pursuit of the target was impeded by their consistent wicket losses, despite a promising start. Mohammad Rizwan (17 off 16) and Saim Ayub (17 off 17) both lost their victims within the first six overs.

Fakhar Zaman (5), Usman Khan (2), Shadab Khan (0), and Imad Wasim (4) all failed to score in double digits, resulting in another failure of Pakistan’s middle-order.

Abbas Afridi’s 17-run innings, which included a six and a four, provided Pakistan with a significant advantage, enabling Babar Azam’s team to approach the target.

The winning team’s skipper, Babar Azam, made the most runs with 32. The Pakistani bowlers dominated the Irish team in the first innings, with Shaheen, Mohammad Amir, and Wasim all impressing with the ball.

Shaheen’s opening over for Pakistan was a superb one, as he dismissed Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker, resulting in a score of 2-2.

Amir continued the initiative that Shaheen had initiated by returning Irish captain Paul Stirling to the pavillion after only one run.

The Pakistani bowlers maintained their domination by consistently sending the batters of their opponents back to the pavillion. It appeared that Ireland would be all out before they had even scored 60 runs as a team. However, George Dockrell and Gareth Delany’s 44-run partnership enabled them to achieve a respectable total.

Delany scored the most for the Irish team, which was ailing, with a quick 19-ball 31 that included four boundaries. Joshua Little’s contributed 22 runs on 18 deliveries, including three boundaries.

Ireland’s innings was concluded with a score of 106/9 after 20 overs. Shaheen and Imad each secured three wickets for Pakistan, while Amir secured two. Haris Rauf was able to dismiss one Irish batsman.

Nevertheless, the victory was of no consequence, as the match was a dead-rubber affair following the elimination of both teams.
