Pakistan may be out of the T20 World Cup without playing the last match

New Delhi. The Pakistan team has already endured a lot in the ICC T20 World Cup. They lost to hosts USA in the Super Over and then India did not allow them to score 120 runs. The team won with much difficulty but even then they were out of the Super 8 race. Now the dream of the team to leave after winning the last league match can be fulfilled. There is a rain shadow over the match against Ireland and there is little hope of it happening.

Pakistan team will play against Ireland in their last league match of ICC T20 World Cup. Both the eliminated teams have a chance to finish the tournament with a win. Ireland defeated Pakistan in the series played before the World Cup. In such a situation, this match is expected to be tough. Sunday, June 16, might have brought some joy for Pakistan fans, but due to the rain, that too looks set to be snuffed out.

The Pakistan team failed to qualify for the Super 8s as they lost their first two matches. Now Babar Azam’s team wants to bid farewell to the tournament with at least a win. This wish also seems to be in vain as the match between USA and Ireland has been called off due to rain in Florida where the match is to be played.

It has been raining heavily in Florida for the past few days. Here, due to rain, people’s life has been affected and flood-like conditions have arisen. Broward County Governor Lauderhill has declared a state of emergency due to the rain. The match between India and Canada could not be played as the field was wet due to rain before the match. There is a chance of rain on the match day between Pakistan and Ireland. It has already rained before the match, so there are full chances of cancellation of the match.
