FLORIDA: Pakistan have won the toss and chose to bowl first against Ireland in the 36th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 here at Central Broward Regional Park on Sunday.


Both sides make one change to their lineups. Abbas Afridi comes in for Naseem Shah while Ireland brought in Ben White for Craig Young.

Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Saim Ayub, Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Usman Khan, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Shaheen Afridi, Abbas Afridi, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Amir.

Ireland: Andy Balbirnie, Paul Stirling (c), Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Josh Little, Ben White.


Pakistan and Ireland have faced each other four times in T20Is with the former having an upper hand.

Matches 4, Pakistan 3, Ireland 1


Both Pakistan and Ireland have been far from their best in recent times and have also been knocked out of the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8s.

Pakistan had a disastrous start to their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign as they suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of the USA in the Super Over.

The Green Shirts then succumbed to a frustrating six-run defeat against arch-rivals India in a blockbuster clash, that took place at a jam-packed Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on June 9.

The former champions then finally got on the winning track when they registered a hard-fought seven-wicket victory over Canada, who won one out of three matches they have played thus far.

On the contrary, Ireland are yet to win a match in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. They lost two matches — against Canada and India — while their match against the USA was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Pakistan: W, L, L, L, NR

Ireland: NR, L, L, W, W
