NEW DELHI: Pakistan bounced back from their surprising loss in the opening match to secure a seven-wicket victory against Ireland on Sunday in the second Twenty20 international held in Dublin, thus setting the stage for a series-deciding match.
Ireland caused a major upset by defeating Pakistan by five wickets in the T20I opener on Friday, marking Ireland’s maiden T20I triumph over Pakistan.
During the second T20I, an Afghanistan supporter reportedly misbehaved with Pakistan’s star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi, as reported by Geo News.
The incident occurred as Shaheen was making his way onto the field from the dressing room.
Disregarding the offensive language, the 24-year-old star pacer alerted security personnel.
Security acted promptly and removed the fan from the ground.
Following their loss in the first T20I, the Babar Azam-led side successfully chased down Ireland’s competitive total of 193/7 with more than three overs to spare, propelled by a remarkable 140-run partnership between Mohammad Rizwan (75*) and Fakhar Zaman (78), securing a record-breaking 45th T20I victory for Pakistan’s standout skipper.
Despite being among the top playing nations, Babar leads with a five-victory margin over second-placed Aaron Finch (40) and has surpassed Uganda’s skipper, Brian Masaba (44), for the most wins by a captain in men’s T20Is.
While Babar tops the chart, Eoin Morgan, England’s 2019 World Cup-winning captain, follows closely with 42 victories, with MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma next in line at 41 wins each.
Former Afghanistan captain Asghar Afghan shares the third position with Morgan, also tallying 42 victories as captain in the shortest format of cricket.
The third and final T20I is scheduled to take place in Dublin on Tuesday.
