Pak v Ire highlights today – Only test day four from The Village, Malahide, Dublin (Ireland) Monday 14th May 2018. At stumps day 3 Ireland – 64/0 in 26 overs, EC Joyce 39, WTS Porterfield 23. Yesterday Pakistan started the play from 268 with six down. Shadab Khan scored 55 off 105 balls and out when his wicket dismissed then it was 80.4 big appeal and out! Murtagh strikes in his first over of the morning! Fuller length, tighter line, Shadab was playing across the line and was thumped on the front pad. Potentially wasn’t doing enough to hit leg stump, but there’s no DRS here, so no recourse for the batsman! 276/7. Faheem Ashraf faced 115 deliveries and he smashed 83 runs with the help of nine boundaries and a maximum. Mohammad Amir contributed 13 runs in the end. Pakistan’s team captain declared their innings at 310/9.
