PAK vs IRE Weather Report Live Today And Pitch Report Of Dublin Stadium – 2nd T20I, Pakistan Tour of Ireland 2024

Must read

Dublin hosts the PAK vs IRE 2nd T20I on Sunday, May 12. This is a must-win game for Pakistan after they lost the first T20I against Ireland. 

Pakistan are playing this series after they drew the previous series against New Zealand 2-2 playing against an almost second-string Kiwi side. Now they look to be struggling against Irland. 

The Pakistan bowlers failed to defend 182 in the first T20I against Ireland Andrew Balbirnie’s 77 off 51 balls ensured that the Irish crossed the line. There were key contributions from Harry Tector (36) and George Dockrell (24) in the run-chase. 

This is just the second T20I between the two sides and Ireland and Pakistan have won one game against each other. Pakistan defeated Ireland way back in the 2009 T20 World Cup. There is pressure on Babar Azam to deliver in this must-win game and avoid a potential series loss. Pakistan have not won anything since Babar’s return to captaincy which had a dramatic turn of events.

Pakistan and Ireland have both qualified for the T20 World Cup. However, Pakistan’s preparations have not yet been up to the mark.

Pakistan drew the series against the Kiwis 2-2 and will play a series against England before starting their T20 World Cup campaign. Meanwhile, Ireland have nothing to lose and can upset the favorites to win the series.

PAK vs IRE Weather Report Of Dublin 

The PAK vs IRE 2nd T20I starts at 3 pm local time. The weather in Dublin is expected to be cloudy accompanied by spells of rain. There is a 100 percent chance of rain in the morning and the chances of rain remain intact throughout the afternoon. Humidity levels will be as high as 78 percent and 8-10 mm of rain is expected

PAK vs IRE Pitch Analysis

Judging from how the match panned out from the first T20I, the venue in Dublin is a high-scoring venue. Pakistan scored 182 but still failed to defend it. Given there is rain prediction for this game, it will be interesting to see how the pitch plays out. Rain will mean a lot of dew in the evening.

PAK vs IRE Weather Impact 

Rain is likely to play spoilsport in this contest. There is heavy rainfall expected and there are strong alters for inclement weather as well. There is a fair bit of rain in England and Ireland in June and thus this rainfall is not unexpected. Rain will mean a delayed start and possibly a deduction of overs as well making it more difficult for Pakistan in this must-win game. 

Conclusion

Like the first game, the second game will be affected by rain. Pakistan faces a must-win situation heading into this game and in case the match is rained out, it will add more pressure on them to win the decider on Tuesday. Pakistan cricket is not in a comfortable space right now with changes in management and captaincy.
