Pakistan team will be playing their final group match with Ireland on Sunday (June 16) at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill. Final three matches of Group A will be hosted in Florida as the teams are all set to fight to secure a spot in the Super Eight.

India have qualified for the next stage of the tournament from the Group A. However, Pakistan and the USA are still striving for the spot in the next stage of the tournament.

As the match between Pakistan and Ireland approaches, a concerning update on weather might affect the game as well as spot of the teams in the next stage. According to the National Weather Service, several areas might be facing a life-threatening flood soon.

Moreover, face-off between Nepal and Sri Lanka on Wednesday was washed out and that has brought Sri Lanka into a crucial situation.

Additionally, the USA will be facing Ireland on Friday (June 14) but heavy thunderstorms are forecasted for the whole week. If this match washes out, Pakistan would be out as both the USA and Ireland will be sharing the points, and the USA will qualify for the Super Eight, which is not beneficial for the Green Shirts.

"Preliminary reports indicate that the rainfall and flooding has affected and may continue to impact the operational capability of critical infrastructure, including major interstates, state and county roadways, airports, schools, and other critical infrastructure throughout these counties," Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, said.

The match between USA and Ireland, which begins at 10:30am local time on June 14, is likely to be affected by continuous rain at Florida.
