Florida: Pakistan have been knocked out of the T20 World Cup after rain played spoilsport and washed out the Group A clash between the USA and Ireland on Friday.

The match being washed away meant that the USA and Ireland received a point each. It took the USA’s tally to five points and sealed their berth in the Super 8 stage. This marked the seventh instance when an associate team progressed into the next round.

Pakistan can have only four points if they manage to win their game against Ireland in Florida on Sunday. Ireland are also in the mix if they manage to win both of their games. However, they have also been ruled out of the Super 8s. With both teams unable to match the USA’s tally, they have been knocked out of the tournament.

India had already qualified for the next round after they defeated the USA by 7 wickets on Wednesday in New York.

Coming to the match, the weather gods didn’t allow the coin to be spun for the toss. The weather was clear at one point, which raised hopes of a match, but eventually, the rain ruled out the prospect of a clash.

Pakistan won the first match of their campaign following their victory over Canada. The Men in Green sealed a 7-wicket win after an all-round performance.

In their previous match, the USA gave India a run for their money but eventually lost by 7 wickets.
