Pakistan vs Ireland Only Test Day 3 Highlights – May 13, 2018
Pak v Ire highlights today – Only test day three from The Village, Malahide, Dublin (Ireland) Sunday 13th May 2018. Yesterday Ireland team bowled total 76 overs and their bowlers TJ Murtagh, WB Rankin and SR Thompson all three of them took two wickets each of them. Pakistan lost their first wicket at 13 and he was Azhar Ali the opener of the Pakistan cricket team, who scored just 4 runs off 23 balls. When his wicket dismissed then it was 7.6 Rankin strikes! Ireland have their first Test wicket! Hugely deserved breakthrough, another tight line, leaping delivery, kisses the splice with a bit of nip off the deck and lobs invitingly into the hands of second slip. Will Porterfield makes no mistake, and Malahide is jubilant! 13/1.
Imam-ul-Haq scored just seven runs on his debut and out, so Pakistan lost their both openers at 13. After two wickets down Haris Sohail and Asad Shafiq batted good and gave Pakistan a hope of good total, but the dismissal of the third and the fourth wicket was again a shock for viewers. Haris Sohail contributed 37 runs and out Asad Shafiq scored 62 runs and gone. Babar Azam scored just 14 and out when the score was 153 and the captain himself got out at 159 with scoring 20 runs. After six wickets down at 159 Pakistan was in big trouble then, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf took the charge and smashed Irish bowlers all around the park. Faheem Ashraf scored 61 runs not out and Shadab Khan 52 runs not out. After 76 overs clouds covered the stadium area and because of bad light day 2 stumped.
Ireland win the toss and chose to bowl.
