Maiden Test Match - Ireland Vs Pakistan at Dublin May 11-15,2018

The team was declared a Test-playing nation in June 2017.

Ireland played their first Test against Pakistan in May 2018 at Dublin’s Malahide at the Village in front of a near-capacity crowd.

The Test was reduced to four-day after the first day was washed out.

On the second day, Ireland won the toss and opted to bowl.

 After four interesting days of Test cricket, Pakistan emerged victorious by five wickets.

 However, despite the result, Ireland have made a convincing start and can go further in red ball cricket.

With the defeat, Ireland failed to emulate Australia’s feat of winning their maiden Test match.

Pakistan 310/ 9 Declared and  160/5(Target 160 Runs)
Ireland    130 and 339
Match Result - Pakistan  won by 5 wickets
