Former Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad took a brutal dig at Babar Azam, the Pakistan team, and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after Pakistan failed to qualify for the Super 8 round of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Ahmed Shehzad posted a tweet on X where he reckoned that the Pakistan team did not deserve to qualify. 

Pakistan has been eliminated from the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 after the USA vs Ireland match was washed out due to rain. The Babar Azam-led side is part of Group A in the tournament with India, USA, Ireland, and Canada in their pool. 

The Men-in-Green faced a shocking defeat against amateur USA in their opening match. Later, they also lost their next encounter against India by 6 runs. The USA won their first two games in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 against Canada and Pakistan and needed one more victory to reach the Super 8 round.

IRE vs USA was washed out due to rain 

Although the co-hosts lost to India in their third game, they had one more clash against Ireland. The USA vs Ireland clash was washed out due to rain and it cleared the way for USA's entry into the next round. After four matches, the USA has gained 5 points while Pakistan still has 2 points with a lone victory against Canada. 

India has also confirmed their top spot in Group A with a total of 6 points with three wins. India is set to play one more game against Canada. However, regardless of the result, India and USA will be the two teams from Group A who will play in the Super 8 round.
