In the second T20I, Pakistan triumphed over Ireland by seven wickets, bringing the three-match series to a 1-1 tie.

The Pakistani team successfully reached the target in the 17th over, thanks to the efforts of Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, and Azam Khan.

Pakistan had a rocky start in their chase, with Saim Ayub scoring only 6 runs and team captain Babar Azam getting out without scoring.

However, a significant partnership was formed between Rizwan and Fakhar. Their 140-run stand set a new record for Pakistan’s highest 3rd wicket partnership in T20Is, surpassing the previous record of 105 runs set by Rizwan and Haider Ali.

Rizwan scored an unbeaten 75 off 46 balls, including four sixes and six fours, while Fakhar contributed 78 runs off 40 balls, hitting six fours and six sixes.

Azam, the wicketkeeper-batsman, aggressively faced the Irish bowlers, scoring an unbeaten 30 off just 10 balls, which included one four and four sixes.

However, Ireland recovered thanks to a 62-run partnership between Harry Tector and Lorcan Tucker. Tector was the top scorer for Ireland with 51 runs off 34 balls, while Tucker added 32 runs off 28 balls.

Curtis Campher and Gareth Delany also made valuable contributions, scoring 22 off 13 balls and an unbeaten 28 off 10 balls respectively, helping Ireland to post their highest total at the Clontarf Cricket Club.
