Lauderhill (USA), Jun 16 (PTI) Left-arm pacers Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Amir wreaked havoc with the new ball, helping Pakistan restrict Ireland to 106 for nine in an inconsequential T20 World Cup match here on Sunday.

Imad Wasim (3/8) bowled brilliantly in the middle overs while Haris Rauf (1/17) also accounted for a batter. Gareth Delany (31 off 19) and Mark Adair (15 off 19) shared crucial 32-run stand for the seventh wicket to keep Ireland in the game.
