PAK vs IRE Team Previews


Pakistan will be heading into this one after a seven-wicket victory over Canada after an early shock to the USA and disappointment against India.

Captain Babar Azam is a lesser beast than non-captain Babar Azam. The tough job of captaining his country has taken its toll on the top order batter. His T20I batting average is over 10 runs lower when given the captaincy. He has two scores over 30 in his first three games at the T20 World Cup.

Wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan has been a consistent T20I run-scorer for Pakistan. His T20I career batting average of almost 50 is impressive. He has steadily improved as the tournament has progressed, with scores of 9, 31 and 53. He will want to work on his strike rate for the tournament which has dipped below 100.

Left-arm quick Shaheen Afridi will be dangerous against an entirely right-handed top-order that he will be presented with. 2024 has already been his most successful T20I bowling year. Afridi has taken 29 wickets in 17 games this year.

Ireland will want to rebuild against a fellow Test nation after a poor first two games in this T20 World Cup.

Paul Stirling is one of Ireland's most experienced and explosive batsmen. The opener has produced his best work on neutral grounds where he averages marginally over 30 with the bat at a strike rate of just over 135.

Stirling's opening batting partner, Andy Balbirnie, has not produced the runs he would have wanted to. He has enjoyed encounters against Pakistan though. He averages 42,66 with a strike rate at 134,73 against Pakistan.

Josh Little is a young, left-arm fast bowler who has quickly become one of Ireland's key bowlers. His pace and ability to move the ball have made him a popular pick in overseas T20 leagues. He has taken 37 wickets at neutral venues, including four for 23 against Sri Lanka at the 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup.
