FLORIDA (Web Desk) - The Pakistan men’s cricket team celebrated Eidul Azha in Lauderhill here following their participation in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

The national team offered Eid prayers at the hotel, led by wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan.

After offering the Eid prayers, the players, alongside support staff greeted each other and posed for the pictures.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared glimpses of the team’s Eid celebration.

“Eid Mubarak from the Pakistan team! The players offered Eid prayers in Florida,” PCB wrote.

For the unversed, Pakistan, in a first, knocked out of the T20 World Cup in the group stage after a crucial Group A fixture between the co-host United States of America (USA) and Ireland was abandoned here without a ball bowled.

The Green Shirts had a disastrous start to their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign as they suffered a shock loss against the USA in the Super Over.

Pakistan then succumbed to a frustrating six-wicket defeat against arch-rivals India at a jam-packed Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on June 9.
The back-to-back defeats put Pakistan on the verge of an early exit from the tournament.

The former champions then finally got on the winning track when they registered a hard-fought seven-wicket victory over Canada.

Pakistan then edged past Ireland in another stiff challenge to bow out of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a win.

The 2009 champions finished third in Group A standings with four points in four matches.
