With Super 8 hopes hanging by a thread, Pakistan cancel practice before must-win encounter vs Ireland

Pakistan cricket team members were forced to train indoors in Florida as they prepared for their final T20 World Cup group stage clash against Ireland. Babar Azam and co. will take on IRE in a must-win game in order to proceed to the Super 8 stage. However, inclement weather in Florida poses a huge threat to PAK’s chances of qualifying to the next stage. “Pakistan Cricket Team will not be doing training today due to wet outfield in the ground of Lauderdale and unavailability of indoor facilities,” a Pakistan journalist tweeted.
