The Pakistan cricket team is currently in Florida, gearing up for their fourth and final group match in the T20 World Cup against Ireland on June 16. 

Unfortunately, bad weather has already disrupted their first practice session. Instead of a full outdoor training session, the players engaged in light indoor physical training and a friendly game of football.

According to reports, the national cricket team decided to end their practice session early due to rain. Rather than heading to the stadium, they opted for physical training and a football game at a local club. This alternative approach aimed to keep the players active and engaged despite the inclement weather.

In addition to their training, the Pakistani cricketers took time to participate in a cricket clinic with local children. They played cricket with the young enthusiasts and offered valuable tips, creating memorable experiences for the budding athletes.

The upcoming match against Ireland is crucial for Pakistan's chances of advancing to the Super Eight stage. The team finds itself in a precarious situation, needing a victory against Ireland to keep their hopes alive. 

Additionally, they must hope that the USA will lose to Ireland in today’s match. If rain affects the match and both the USA and Ireland receive one point each, Pakistan will be eliminated from the tournament.

The final league match against Ireland, scheduled for June 16, also faces the threat of being affected by rain. As the Pakistan team navigates these challenges, their focus remains on securing a win and advancing in the T20 World Cup.
