So Pakistan win a memorable game of cricket by two wickets. Ireland seemed to have the upper hand when they reduced their opponenets to 133 for 7 but superb hitting by Kamran Akmal and Wahab Riaz changed the game. The Pakistan wicketkeeper takes the man of the match award while Kevin O'Brien takes the man of the series award. With this victory Pakistan take the series 1-0 which will count as good preperation for their Champions Trophy campaign beginning next month.

Ger Siggins' report will be up shortly so do check that out but from Conor Hayes in a sun soaked Clontarf it's goodbye.
