44.6 Tyrone Kane to Imam ul-Haq

Tyrone Kane to Imam ul-Haq. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to backward square leg for 2 runs. Squirted into the leg side and Imam ul-Haq will jog through for the second to take Pakistan to victory by five wickets. It was a fighting performance from Ireland but unfortunately they are on the losing side in their inaugural Test match. The first innings batting performance left much to be desired but in the second innings they were superb.Kevin O'Brien scored a memorable century while Stuart Thompson stuck with him and contributed with a gutsy fifty. For Pakistan they were tested with both bat and ball and after being 14-3 earlier they needed someone to stand up. That person was Imam ul-Haq who brought his team home with an unbeaten 74 on debut, one for the future. Mohammad Abbas returned figures of 9-110 in the match and he is coming into form as Pakistan head into the Test series against England.This has been a fabulous spectacle with both teams playing their part, Ireland look like they have a bright future in this format.

16.6 Tim Murtagh to Babar Azam

Tim Murtagh to Babar Azam. Short, outside off stump down the track defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Murtagh. The umpire's call lunch after a fascinating morning session. Ireland would have hoped to put on a few more runs but once they had the ball in their hand magic began to happen. Tim Murtagh bowled nine overs in a row, taking two early wickets while Boyd Rankin chipped in with one of his own. At 14-3 Pakistan were really struggling but Babar Azam and Imam ul-Haq have put on a nice partnership to steady the ship. Can Ireland re-group during the break and come out firing again?
