Pakistan might become the first team to be knocked out from Group A even before Canada and Ireland. Hosts USA and Ireland are set to face each other today in Florida and with rain in the forecast, there is every possibility of match getting abandoned. If this happens, then USA will qualify for the Super 8 round knocking Pakistan out even before playing their last league game against Ireland.

Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida is slated to host this encounter and the fans will really be hoping for the game to take place. USA too would be keen on winning this game and sealing their place in the next round instead of weather helping them. In case, Ireland wins this match, Pakistan will stay alive and have a realistic chance of going to the next round.

Florida Pitch Report

Florida has hosted 18 T20Is so far in its cricketing history and it has been a good surface to bat on. But the pitch has been under the covers for more than 72 hours now and there will be some moisture in it. The fast bowlers will get some help with the new ball and early wickets can fall. The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first with rain expected to intervene multiple times.
