PAKvIRE: Pakistan win T20 series against Ireland

DUBLIN – Pakistan on Tuesday beat Ireland by six wickets in the third and final match of the ongoing T20 cricket series in Dublin. 

Pakistan won the toss and decided to bowl first. Batting first, Ireland set a target of 179 runs in 20 overs at the loss of seven wickets. Chasing the target, Pakistan scored the required number of runs in 17 overs at the loss of 4 wickets.

From the Pakistan side, pacer Shaheen Afridi and batters Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan led the team from the front and played a critical role in team's victory in the final match of the series.

Pakistan made one change in the playing XI as pacer Naseem Shah was replaced with Hasan Ali.

Men in Green had to push hard as they faced a fully prepared Ireland in the final game of the series, with hosts and visitors looking to gain momentum with less than a month before the much-anticipated ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

After losing the series opener, the Babar Azam XI bounced back with 7-wicket win in the second match, courtesy of both batters and pacers.

The final match started at 7:00 p.m. Pakistan Standard Time, and was crucial for both teams as they looked to build momentum ahead of the mega event.

Despite Pakistan's strong bowling attack, the visitors struggled to contain Ireland's batting lineup in this series. 

After the Ireland series, Pakistan will tour England for a four-match T20I series before both teams head to the USA for the T20 World Cup 2024. Pakistan will start their campaign against the United States in Dallas on June 6, with a highly anticipated match against India on June 9 in NYC.
