Pakistan vs Ireland Scorecard and Highlights: Post-Match Comments

Babar Azam - Pakistan captain: We finished well, we took early wickets in the bowling. In the batting we did not do well but we took it home with the tailenders. Bowling was good as conditions suit our fast bowlers. Batting we made a few mistakes, we had chances to win against USA and India. If the team needs me to open, I will and if they need me to bat 3, I will. Whatever the team situation suits I will do it. We have a good bunch of players, a few days rest and then there is a series. We will sit and assess where we went wrong. As a team we are not good in this tournament.

Paul Stirling - Ireland captain: They put pressure on us and they blew away our top-order away and that was the difference. Proud of our fight we showed today, we were 30-5 and managed to get to that score in the end which wasn't too far away. Thought we will lose by 8 wickets but we fought and that shows we want to play good cricket. It's about getting the balance right, in T20 cricket you need that tempo, we haven't got that quite right, we needed to go hard at certain times but couldn't. I would rather see us batting like the way we did today than against Canada. It's been a difficult couple of weeks, we will regroup in the next couple of months and years to come.

Shaheen Afridi - Player of the Match: Wicket was supporting for the new ball, we just tried to hit our good areas and strike early. Our plans were a success. My idea is to bowl fuller, we were trying to hit our areas. We didn't play good cricket which our country demands. There are few areas we need to improve quickly, Champions Trophy is coming. We have to improve and we'll have to grow as a team. Crowd - they always come and support us, thank you everyone for the support. It's tough times but they always come and support us, that's what we need as a team. That's my job, I come late (to bat) in the innings, I just hit. The team needed it. Always trying to hit sixes.

Saim Ayub and Mohammad Rizwan take on the attack early on and release all the pressure from this fairly small chase! Pakistan are cruising and Ireland needs something dramatic from here to turn the game around.

Excellent effort from the Pakistan bowler to restrict Ireland to just 106! Credit much be given to Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Aamir who did the damage early on. Ireland never looked settled from their first over.

Pakistan vs Ireland Live Score, Updates: Comments at toss

Ireland Captian - Paul Stirling: That's what we would have done (bowl first). Under the covers for a while, there'll be a little bit up top. Hopefully we can through that and put a score on the board. We put one on the board, got 1-0 up in the series (against Pakistan) and then didn't manage to go on and win it. World Cup brings a different scenario, another great game hopefully. Young misses out today, Ben White is in.

Pakistan Captain - Babar Azam: We'll have a bowl first. Last three days, the pitch has been covered, little bit moisture on it. As a professional, you need to prepare for every match. We'll look to play our best today. We have one change. Naseem isn't playing, Abbas is playing.

Pakistan vs Ireland Live Score Updates: Ireland player comments ahead of the match

Mark Adair, Ireland pacer: "You arrive here and you're thinking, oh, we're in New York, we're in Florida, it's going to be sunshine, it's going to be amazing. But Newark was pretty tough. I think the travel and stuff wasn't ideal. Obviously where we were staying in relation to the city was good for us if you want to go exploring or be a bit of a tourist. But obviously not ideal not seeing the ground in New York before the first game. Not ideal but again we move, we're used to sort of doing things on the fly and just getting on with it really. Unfortunately, the results didn't go our way, but I feel like we're better poised to put in two strong performances here in Florida."

Pakistan vs Ireland Live Score Updates: Ireland (Team News)

Ireland may not have been the favorites to qualify for the next round in this World Cup anyway, but after having lost to Canada and missed out on an opportunity to beat the USA, they stare at the possibility of ending their World Cup campaign on a winless note.

Pakistan vs Ireland Live Score Updates: Pakistan (Team News)

For Pakistan, a shock defeat to the USA and a loss to India, not to mention from a winning position, was disappointing enough.

The eventual early exit from the tournament has made it worse, and if there's anything that can pull them any lower, it would be another loss to Ireland on their way out. If there was any mathematical possibility of them qualifying for the Super 8s, it was washed away with the rain on Friday morning at the same venue.

Pakistan vs Ireland Live Score Updates: Pitch Report - Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida

The wicket here has been a mystery, in this World Cup has been kinder to pacers and the sinner. All three games here have been won by chasing sides. Add to that a slight chance of rainfall before the official start time, and the captain winning the toss should have no hesitation in opting to field first to make the most of the conditions.
