PAK vs IRE Match Details, Qualification Scenario of Pakistan for SUPER 8s, Full Squads and More | ICC T20 World Cup 2024


PAK vs IRE ICC T20 World Cup 2024: A big match of Group A- PAKISTAN vs IRELAND on 15th June is scheduled to be played at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida. The weather in Florida is not going to please the eyes of Pakistan and looks like they are going to miss the qualification.

The first and foremost concern for Men in Green is the weather conditions. Florida has witnessed heavy rain and strong storms over the past couple of days. However there is less probability of rain on Pakistan’s match day, Pakistan team and the whole of Pakistan will be praying thoroughly to the weather gods to allow playing at least a 5-over game.

Before that, it is United States vs Ireland today that can spoil it for Pakistan today only. USA are set to play Ireland today in Florida at Lauderhill and the weather forecast is also not that good. This match between USA and Ireland would be a game-changer for Pakistan on the road to qualification.

Qualification Scenario of Pakistan for SUPER 8s

The qualification of Pakistan very much depends on Ireland and the weather. Both can be the party spoiler for Pakistan at this stage. How? Let’s check it out!

Group A consisted of five teams- India, Pakistan, United States, Ireland, and Canada. India have already qualified for the Super 8s and there is only one spot left. USA are sitting at the second spot of the Group A points table with 4 points in three matches. They need a win to qualify for the Super 8 stage and have a match left against Ireland (scheduled for today).

Pakistan are number three in the table with two points after three matches and they too have one match left against Ireland. Ireland are also in the race if they can win both the games with big margins. This is how, a lot depends on PAK vs IRE for Pakistan and Ireland.

If USA defeat Ireland, they are certain to qualify for the next round, and Ireland, Pakistan, and Canada will get eliminated right at the moment. Even if the rain washes away the match, the two points will be distributed among the teams and that will be enough for USA to make the qualification.

Pakistan would not want any of these outcomes but they would back Ireland today. If Ireland defeats USA today then the USA will just stay with four points and a low NRR. Pakistan would give their heart out for their last matchup against Ireland and try to catch every moment.

A good win in PAK vs IRE can earn Pakistan a complete majority over USA and they can be the second team to qualify for the SUPER 8s.

Canada have their last matchup against India and it will be hard for them to muster a win there. If somehow Canada manage to trap India, they will probably need a big grab in the margin. With this, Canada are also in the race.
