Lauderhill, Florida hosts the PAK vs IRE T20 World Cup match on Sunday, June 16 from 8 pm IST. As per reports, inclement weather awaits both teams who will be playing a very crucial game.

The match between Sri Lanka and Nepal was abandoned forcing Sri Lanka's elimination from the tournament. Pakistan and Ireland were both eliminated after Ireland's match against the USA ended in a washout.

Pakistan are heading into this game after losing to the USA and India. They won by seven wickets against Canada and need another massive win against Ireland to boost their NRR and secure Super 8 qualification.

Pakistan's performance have grabbed a lot of eyeballs so far. Skipper Babar Azam is under pressure to perform. He has batted with a very low strike rate and has been dismissed the same way twice now.

Ireland on the other hand, started with losses against India and Canada. Their rained-out game against the USA now makes their match against Pakistan a no-contest as both teams are eliminated from the tournament.

This game is a dad rubber between the two sides. However, Ireland who recently beat Pakistan in a T20I bilateral series gets another opportunity to notch up a win against them.
