During the group stage, they suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of India and USA. Pakistan played their last group stage match against Ireland on 16 June. Pakistan won this match. But in the meantime, the captain of the team Babar Azam has made a special record in his name. He has left behind former Indian captain MS Dhoni in a list.
