Test Match Cricket


Terrific day for it today.


Boyd Rankin claims Ireland’s first ever test match wicket. Azhar Ali departs to the last delivery of the 8th over. Pakistan 13/1.


Scenes. Murtagh strikes next ball. Iman-up-Haq out lbw. 13/2




The village is buzzing today guys


Truly wonderful day in the Village.


Pakistan have steadied the ship after losing both openers cheaply. 67/2 at lunch.


:beers: :beers:




Getting away from Ireland a bit now. Pakistan have rallied from 159/6 to 258/6.


How many overs remain?


Just gone off bad light. 76 overs so far today. That could prove to be stumps.


Oh Dear. The ICC will need to review their decision to allow Paddys to play this “sport”. Is there a B Championship “we” could enter?


Carnage with the bat. Ireland 7/4


Twas funny to see the crowd in tee-shirts yesterday, and the Pakistani batsmen in full winter woolys.


61/7. Kevin O’Brien still at the crease, on 36.


Ireland move onto Nelson - 111/9 in response to Pakistan’s 310/9d. The follow on has been avoided.


A shocking lack of cricket knowledge here. Pakistan have enforced the follow on after Ireland were all out for 130. A lead of 150 or more was sufficient for Pakistan to enforce the follow on due to the entirety of day 1 being lost to rain.


Amateur hour
