2nd ODI: Ireland v Pakistan at Dublin, May 26, 2013
Pakistan won by 2 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
26 May 2013 (50-over match)

Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the second ODI between Ireland and Pakistan at Clontarf in Dublin. The first match ended in a stunning tie which means the winner today takes the series. This is Conor Hayes here and I'm happy to report that the sun is shining here at the moment and we'll start on time.

News from the middle is that Pakistan have won the toss and will field. Ireland make one change from the team that played on Thursday with James Shannon, making his ODI debut, coming in for Andrew White. Pakistan make three changes with Ajmal, Irfan and Ehsan Adil all missing out. The crowd is filling up nicely and we are expecting a sell out with both the green of Pakistan and Ireland well represented. We are hearing there is a chance of rain in the afternoon but hopefully it will avoid us.
