Babar Azam led his team through a nerve-wracking chase against Ireland 

In the last Group A encounter, a dead rubber after both sides had already been eliminated, Pakistan defeated Ireland three wickets on Sunday to finish their T20 World Cup campaign. Captain Babar Azam led his team through a nerve-wracking chase.

After suffering defeats to the United States and India, who advanced to the Super Eight round, Pakistan secured the third position with four points in the five-team group. With just one point, Ireland came in last and concluded their season without a victory. Following the toss and decision to bowl, Pakistan's Shaheen Afridi (3-22) removed Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker in the opening over, then Mohammad Amir (2-11) removed captain Paul Stirling and George Dockrell, leaving Ireland reeling at 28-5 in the sixth over. Gareth Delany stabilized Ireland's innings, but he was dismissed by Imad Wasim and Joshua Little and Benjamin White had an undefeated last-wicket partnership of 26 runs, taking the score to 106-9.
