Ireland will be utterly disappointed with this start. They would have wanted to get a couple of wickets by now but find themselves in trouble as this opening partnership is taking a toll. Pakistan will want to carry on in this fashion and get to their target with ease and make it to the quarter-final with momentum. . Live scorecard: Pakistan vs Ireland

Ireland have not made any changes in their side from their previous match. This is a must win game for both teams and will be interesting to see which one will go through at the end of the day.
