Pakistan win the toss and elect to bowl in the match 36 of ICC T20 World Cup against Ireland on Sunday, June 16 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground. Naseem Shah is not playing today, confirms Babar Azam. For Ireland, Ben White comes in for Craig Young. (Match Blog|More Cricket News)

Both teams are already eliminated from the tournament after the USA vs. Ireland match was washed out due to heavy rain. Pakistan needed Ireland to beat the USA to stay in the competition, but the washout drafted their exit.

Pakistan's early exit is shocking and it can be attributed to their embarrassing defeats against the USA and India in their initial matches, despite being in strong positions to win both games. They now aim to finish the tournament on a high note.
