    14.3 faster delivery outside off stump and just takes Joyce's outside edge. Pakistan are delighted to take that wicket. A much better start that time from Ireland 65/1

    43.1 it isnt because he bowls him next ball! It moved it a little bit off the pitch and Stirling was going for a big hit and misses it. That was the wicket Pakistan wanted 182/4
    23.5 plays back to a straight one, he misses and Hafeez hits. Porterfield will be very disappointed with that because he was looking good 108/2

    45.3 kevin goes for the big hit over long-off. It goes a mile in the air and Azam gets it just before the rope 198/5
    49.4 goes for the big hit back past the bowler. Wilson hits it a mile in the air goes down the throat of the man at long-off 233/8
    47.3 he goes for the same shot again and this time Salman takes the catch. He was going for the big hit to try and up the rate 218/6
    49.2 run out! Johnston went for a second which was never on. Azam gathered the ball at long -off and got it off quickly to the bowler who took off the bails. Johnston went for a desperate dive but was still out by some distance 233/7

    1.5 what a start for Ireland. Johnston pitches the ball up well and Hafeez can only chip the ball up to White at mid-on. Too say Johnston is happy would be an understatement. 2/1
    17.5 full delivery again from O'Brien and it pops up to Stirling at mid-wicket. Big Wicket for Ireland 65/2
    21 and another one goes down for Pakistan. Rankin sent another fast delivery outside off stump, Azhar had to play at it. It took the edge and flew to Stirling at first slip 80/3
    48.1 another one bites the dust. Younis tries to end it with a big hit and doesnt time it well and flies into Kevin's hands at mid-wicket 237/5
    36.5 pitched outside off stump and looks to take the edge and Wilson takes the catch. Misbah stands his ground. He does look happy but the umpires given it. Its just what Ireland needed 148/4

  • Pakistan edge past fighting Ireland

    A brilliant, belligerent century by Paul Stirling wasn't enough to take Ireland to victory over Pakistan in the second ODI

  • Pakistan will not take it easy says Waqar

    Pakistan will not experiment much against Ireland in the second game of the two-match ODI series on Monday in Belfast, coach Waqar Younis has said
