Pakistan Knocked Out of 2024 T20 World Cup in First Round

Pakistan’s 2024 T20 World Cup campaign ended in disappointment after rain forced the abandonment of the crucial match between the USA and Ireland in Lauderhill, Florida. This highly anticipated encounter, vital for Pakistan’s qualification chances, was called off due to a wet outfield, resulting in both teams sharing a single point each.

In a disappointing turn of events, Pakistan is officially out of the 2024 T20 World Cup. Rain called off the crucial USA vs. Ireland match in Lauderhill, Florida, sealing Pakistan’s fate.

Despite high hopes, the weather decided the outcome, forcing both teams to share points. This result means Pakistan cannot progress further in the tournament. This result means Pakistan’s final group stage match against Ireland, scheduled for Sunday, will be a dead rubber if it even takes place, with rain forecast again in Florida on June 16th.

The rain not only washed out the game but also dampened the spirits of Pakistan’s fans. They were eagerly watching the match. This outcome makes Pakistan’s upcoming match against Ireland on Sunday a mere formality, provided it doesn’t get rained out too.

Earlier in the tournament, Pakistan’s campaign had a rocky start. They lost to the USA in a nail-biting Super Over and narrowly fell to India by 6 runs. However, they managed to secure a win against Canada, chasing down a target of 107 runs with 7 wickets in hand.

Despite this victory, it wasn’t enough to keep their hopes alive. As rain continues to be a factor, many are questioning the decision to hold such crucial matches in Florida during the rainy season.

What is the cricket’s future?

This exit marks a new low for Pakistan in T20 World Cups. It is the first time Pakistan is already out in the group stage. The rain-affected match adds another layer of frustration to a campaign riddled with inconsistency.

Pakistan fans furiously took to social media after the team’s exit, slamming the management and the Pakistan Cricket Board. Several demanded answers from the concerned authorities as this is Pakistan’s second group-stage exit in back-to-back ICC tournaments. Pakistan was earlier knocked out of the ODI World Cup 2023 group stage as well.

For now, Pakistan’s journey in the T20 World Cup ends here, leaving fans and players alike looking forward to better days.
