Pakistan cricket hit a new low today at Dublin after Ireland beat a full-strength Pakistan squad by five wickets in 183 runs chase, thus attracting heavy trolling on the internet.

Nothing seems to be working for Pakistan ever since they crashed out of the 2023 ODI World Cup last year. 

Babar Azam’s return to captaincy, five months after resignation, also failed to procure a turnaround as PAK split a five-game T20 series against a B-ranked New Zealand side.

And now, in what turned out to be yet another low, Pakistan, led by Babar Azam, lost the first T20I of the three-game series to Ireland despite posting a formidable 182 runs innings total.

Notably, Pakistan had their best bowling lineup playing in Dublin, with Shaheen Shah Afridi leading the attack. However, Ireland opener Andrew Balbirnie showcased utmost bravery and resilience to lead Ireland’s chase after loss of two wickets in powerplay.

Moreover, with 11 needed off the final over, Abbas Afridi failed to hold his nerves as Curtis Campher rammed over him with two decisive boundaries to produce a massive upset.

With yet another humiliation just days after the series split against NZ, fans completely tore apart Pakistan cricket for dropping their standards to a new low. Moreover, with the T20 World Cup on the horizon, Pakistan’s questionable form is only adding to their existing misery. 

Notably, Pakistan and Ireland share the same group in the upcoming ICC event, and with this upset, Ireland’s confidence will undoubtedly hit the ceiling.

That being said, Ireland is 1-0 in the three-game bilateral series, and the upcoming do-or-die game will be played on Sunday at the same venue.
