Pakistan vs Ireland - Only Test - Match Thread


#1
Today is a historic day as Ireland becomes cricket's 11th Test nation. Yes, the same country who beat Pakistan in a 2007 world cup game is now facing Pakistan in their first ever test match.

Rain is forecast for the first two days of the match.

The match starts at 3 pm Pakistan time.

Both captains with the trophy.

Pakistan will play the same team that won against Northamptonshire.

Azhar Ali
Imam ul-Haq
Haris Sohail
Asad Shafiq
Babar Azam
Sarfraz Ahmed (c, wk)
Shadab Khan
Faheem Ashraf
Mohammad Amir
Mohammad Abbas
Rahat Ali

By the way Harris Sohail at 3 is a mystery to me. Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq have techniques much better suited to playing swing bowling. Given the conditions and pitch in Ireland, it is very likely that there will be early wickets and Haris’ technique will be tested against a new ball and green pitch.

Not just Ireland but Afghanistan too will make the Test debut this year.

Match delayed due to rain. But let's not forget Iceland Cricket which is doing a marvelous job of being cheeky.

For some reason Shafiq playing at number 3 isn't working. And Babar failed at no. 3 so they moved him down the order.

What's the story behind this?

Ireland dropped the ball by not limiting Pakistan to 250.

But huge credit to Shadab and Faheem for good batting display.

Ireland really did well the first two sessions but couldn't pick up a wicket in the last and allowed Pakistan to accumulate and accelerate. Great day of cricket.

One thing I don't understand why games always have time added on at the end of the game. Surely it would make sense to start earlier instead, and then also add on time at the end if it's needed.

They'll probably do the same thing tomorrow and bad light will stop play again.

I don't know when will Azhar Ali learn to take catches in slip. He is a senior player and should act as such. He also dropped Kohli in the CT final which would have been a disaster had he not gotten out on next ball.
Amir had enough of this shit and just walked away.

How was Pakistan able to enforce follow on when they were not 200 runs ahead?
