Pakistan held on to claim a nervy three-wicket win over Ireland as disappointing T20 World Cup campaigns for both sides came to an end.

A low-scoring game was still in the balance going into the 19th over but two big sixes from Shaheen Afridi settled it in Pakistan's favour with seven balls to spare.

Pakistan appeared to be cruising in the chase but lost four wickets for 10 runs to slump to 62-6 after 11 overs.

Pakistan made 111 runs with 18.5 overs while Ireland made 106 runs with 20 overs.

This was the last match of the tournament to be held in the USA as the remaining games will be played in the Caribbean.

In another game this morning, Australia beat Scotland by 7 wickets.

Meanwhile, India, United States, Australia, West Indies, Afghanistan and South Africa have booked their spot in the Super 8s.
