As the Pakistan cricket team prepares in Florida for their decisive final group match in the T20 World Cup against Ireland on June 16, inclement weather has forced a strategic shift in their training regime.

Unfavourable weather conditions disrupted Pakistan's initial plans for an outdoor practice session. Instead of risking further disruptions, the national cricket team opted for light indoor physical training and a friendly game of football.

This decision was made to ensure the players remained active and engaged despite the challenging weather.
