Pakistan Eliminated

In its first-ever T20 World Cup, the United States of America created history by making it to the Super 8 round of the competition after their previous Group A encounter against Ireland at Lauderhill was abandoned on Friday without a ball being bowled. This washout not only guaranteed the USA’s unprecedented advancement from a challenging group to the next round, but it also dashed Pakistan’s ambitions. The 2009 winners were eliminated from the competition.

The Babar Azam-led team will play Ireland in their last group-stage encounter at the same location on Sunday, although the outcome of that contest has no bearing on the group rankings. If Ireland had defeated the USA, Pakistan’s sole chance of surviving the competition would have been intact. A different outcome would have resulted in their elimination, and that is precisely what occurred.
Even if Pakistan wins their last game against Ireland, they will still only have four points from the group stage, while the USA finished with five points from four games.

In a tight match on Sunday in New York, Pakistan lost to India and was unable to reach their aim of 120. Prior to it, they lost an unexpected Super Over match in their first game in Dallas against USA.

Pakistan’s hopes of making it to the Super Eight were already out of their hands following their consecutive losses. Once again, the unpredictably bad Pakistanis waited too long to qualify for another international competition.

USA Created History after Pakistan Elimination

The USA joined India in the Super Eight stage after victories over heavyweights Pakistan and neighboring Canada in their opening two matches.


The likelihood of Friday’s game happening was always slim since Lauderhill, in the state of Florida, had been struck by a tropical rainstorm that resulted in torrential rain and flash floods.However, even if the game had happened, the USA would have been confident in their ability to defeat Ireland and go to the Super Bowl after their two significant victories and valiant effort against India.

As a result, the United States qualified for the T20 World Cup in 2026, which India and Sri Lanka will co-host. On the day of the T20 World Cup final, the top eight teams from this group, together with the two hosts and the top two rated teams outside of this, will automatically advance to the following T20 showcase. In fact, there’s a chance that the unfavorable weather would cancel the whole Florida leg of the T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place at Central Broward Park here, prompting the local government to declare a state of emergency.

The match between Nepal and Sri Lanka washed out before the toss was even made just two days ago.Pakistan’s aspirations were dashed by the United States’ qualifying, but they only had themselves to blame after losing their opening two games in New York against the Americans and India, their bitter rivals.
With Ireland waiting in the wings, the Babar Azam-led team needed to win their final two games handily and defeat Canada by seven wickets. However, the match in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, is now meaningless.
