Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Mohsin Naqvi lauded the national men’s cricket team for winning the three-match away T20I series against Ireland.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, the PCB chair congratulated the Green Shirts on the series victory over Ireland and wished them luck for the upcoming T20I series against England and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

“Congratulations to the Pakistan Cricket team for winning the series against Ireland,” wrote Mohsin Naqvi.

“With teamwork and dedication, you have proven to be the best team in the world.

“Best of luck, boys, for the England series and the World Cup,” he concluded.


Notably, the Babar Azam-led Pakistan recovered from a shock loss in the first T20I and won the remaining two fixtures on the trot to claim a T20I series win after 2021.

In the third and final T20I, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan’s swashbuckling half-centuries after Shaheen Shah Afridi’s splendid bowling figures of 3/14 led Pakistan to a resounding six-wicket victory over Ireland.

Babar smashed six fours and five sixes on his way to top-score for Pakistan with a quickfire 75 which came off just 42 balls.

Whereas, Mohammad Rizwan scored an anchoring 56. His 38-ball knock featured four fours and three sixes.

Wicketkeeper batter Azam Khan once again gave the final touches to the run chase with a brisk 18-run cameo which included two sixes and a four.

Earlier, Pakistan restricted Ireland to a chasable total despite stand-in captain Lorcan Tucker’s 73, courtesy of Shaheen’s economical bowling figures.

The ace pacer picked up three wickets and gave away just 14 runs in his four overs. His match-winning bowling performance earned him the Player of the Match award.
