Ireland are set to face Pakistan in the second match of their three-game T20I series at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground in Dublin. The match is scheduled for May 12, beginning at 7:30 PM IST. In the first encounter, Ireland secured a convincing five-wicket victory, showcasing their clinical performance both with bat and ball. Despite Pakistan’s reputation, Ireland successfully restricted them to 182-6 before chasing down the target with ease, with Andrew Balbirnie leading the charge with a score of 77.

Pakistan’s recent defeats, including one against a weakened New Zealand side, raise concerns about their approach to the game. Despite Pakistan’s claim of experimenting for the upcoming World Cup, their performance in the first T20I suggests otherwise. Pakistan’s traditional strategy of starting slow and aiming for big scores in the final overs is becoming outdated, with the par score now ranging between 200-210. This shift in scoring trends should prompt Pakistan to reassess their tactics and aim for higher totals from the start.

Pitch Report

The wicket at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground in Dublin has historically favoured batters, as evident by the recent match where Ireland successfully chased down a score of over 180 set by Pakistan. While there might be some early swing available for the bowlers, as the game progresses, the wicket tends to settle, providing a good surface for batting. Teams batting first should aim for a score of around 200 to stay safe in the match.

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Star batter Babar Azam will be disappointed with his performance in the first game and will be eager to bounce back strongly. He’s too talented to miss out on opportunities, especially against a comparatively weaker side like Ireland. Azam will be aiming to return to his usual form and make a significant contribution in the upcoming game to help his team level the series.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Shaheen Afridi seemed off colour in the first game and will be determined to stage a strong comeback. He’ll aim to deliver a brilliant spell to aid his team in levelling the series, particularly after the one-sided loss in the first game.
