Ireland Defeats Pakistan To Win The T20I Series

By winning the third T20I match against Pakistan on Wednesday in Lahore, the Irish women’s team secured the series victory.

Ireland defeated Pakistan 2-1 to win the series, which marked both the first-ever away T20I series victory for the visitors and the first T20I series victory for the Irish side in Asia.

At the Gaddafi Stadium, Ireland scored 167-4 in their allotted 20 overs after opting to bat first.

With opener Gaby Lewis leading the way with 71 runs in 46 balls, Ireland’s top-order significantly boosted the team’s total. She scored an incredible 11 fours and a six.

Pakistan failed to reach the challenging goal and was dismissed for 133 in 18.5 overs.

Javeria Khan, the opener, produced 50 runs in 37 balls with the help of seven fours, but she didn’t have adequate assistance from the other end as Pakistan continued to lose wickets often.

Arlene Kelly and Laura Delany of Ireland each took three wickets to contain Pakistan.

Player of the game and series honor went to Gabby Lewis. With 144 runs at a strike rate of 130.90, she was the top run scorer in the three T20Is.

On Saturday at Lahore, the first women’s T20I of the series, Ireland defeated Pakistan by six wickets. Pakistan, meanwhile, recovered to win the second T20I on Monday by a margin of six wickets.

It should be mentioned that Pakistan won the ODI series 3-0 before the T20I series.
