Pakistan vs Ireland Match Prediction

PAK vs IRE Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Pakistan will take on Ireland in the 36th game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida and will start at 8:00 PM IST on June 16.

Both teams were knocked out of the T20 World Cup after the USA vs IRE match was washed out. Pakistan needed Ireland to beat USA, however, the match could not start due to heavy rain in Florida, resulting in Pakistan’s exit from the tournament. The Men in Green are themselves to blame for the early exit as they suffered defeats to USA and India in the first two games. Pakistan could have won both games but suffered defeats from a position of strength. The team would now look to end the tournament on a high.

Ireland also lost to India and Canada. They needed wins over USA and Pakistan in the last two games but the washout meant that they too were eliminated from the tournament. Ireland played a series against Pakistan not so long ago where they defeated Pakistan in one of the T20I games so they would be optimistic about their chances against the Babar Azam-led side.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

PAK Team News

Pakistan have been knocked out of the tournament so they could make a few changes to their playing XI for the final game. Abrar Ahmed and Abbas Afridi could be given a chance in the playing XI.

PAK Key Players

  • Babar Azam- Babar did not have a great T20 World Cup but he is the team’s best batter and the expectations rests on his shoulder. On a surface, where scoring runs is likely to be tough, batters who are great in rotating strike are key.
  • Mohammad Rizwan- The Babar theory applies to Rizwan as well who is the second best batter in the team. Rizwan returned to form in the last game against Canada and played a match winning innings of 53. He would be eyeing another decent outing in the next game.
  • Mohammad Amir – Amir has bowled well in the T20 World Cup. He came out of retirement to play in the mega event and delivered a decent show. Amir got the ball to swing and got wickets with the new as well as the old ball. This will likely be his final game for Pakistan and he would eye a strong show.
  • Imad Wasim- Imad Wasim is a valuable cricketer give his all-round skills. Wasim struggled against India with the bat but one should not judge him on one bad day. He is a solid batter and a more than a handy bowler.

Pakistan suffered defeats to USA and India in the first two games before beating Canada in the previous game.

IRE Team News

Ireland could have done better that what they did in T20 World Cup, however, the team would now be looking at ending the tournament on a high. Ireland would want to give their best shot in beating Pakistan thus they are likely to field the same team.

IRE Key Players

  • Andrew Balbirnie- Like most teams, Ireland batters also struggled in T20 World Cup 2024. Balbirnie is Ireland’s most consistent batter and he would be eyeing a decent outing against Pakistan. He was in good form when the two teams last met in the T20I series ahead of the World Cup so chances are high that he will do well in the coming game.
  • Harry Tector- Tector is another batter from Ireland who can change the complexion of the game within a blink of an eye. With no pressure of qualification, Tector can play his natural game. On his day, he can do some serious damage to the opposition teams.
  • Mark Adair- Adair is a top pick when it comes to match winners in Ireland side. He is the team’s lead pacer and always contributes crucial runs down the order. He would be eyeing another game changing performance. 
  • George Dockrell- Dockrell also brings great value to the side due to his all-round skills. As a spinner, he could get help from the surface and can make life tough for the Irish batters.

Ireland have played two games in T20 World Cup and suffered defeats in both games, losing to India and Canada. Their previous game against Canada was washed out.
