Pakistan, Ireland look ahead to T20 World Cup following Dublin series

Must read

The form of Babar in particular will please Pakistan ahead of the T20 World Cup, with the skipper’s innings of 75 coming from just 42 deliveries and featuring a joint career-best five sixes and an excellent strike-rate of 178.57.

Babar smashed four sixes from one Ben White over to put Pakistan in the ascendancy, combining with Rizwan for a partnership of 139 for the second wicket.

“We had good communication in the middle because we have played a lot of cricket together; we were trying to play on our strengths and the aim was to match with the run rate,” Babar noted.

“Lots of positives for us to take and we were able to execute our plans.

“We have a big tournament coming up and this is good practice; we are now looking forward to the England series.”
