Pakistan levels the T20 series in Dublin beating Ireland

Pakistan: Pakistan leveled the T20 series in Dublin by defeating Ireland by seven wickets in the second match at Clontarf. 

Batting first, Ireland posted a competitive total of 193-7 in their 20 overs, with Lorcan Tucker scoring 51 and Harry Tector contributing 32. Shaheen Afridi was the standout bowler for Pakistan, claiming 3-49.

Pakistan initially struggled at 13-2, facing a challenging target before Fakhar Zaman (78) and Muhammad Rizwan (75 not out) turned the game around with a 140-run partnership. Fakhar’s aggressive innings, featuring six sixes, propelled Pakistan to easily victory.

Ireland, coming off a surprise win in the series opener, had hoped to repeat their success but couldn’t contain Pakistan’s batting prowess. Despite the early dismissals of Saim Ayub and captain Babar Azam, Fakhar and Rizwan’s partnership ensured a comfortable win for the tourists.

With the series now level, the decider will take place on Tuesday, setting the stage for an exciting finale.
