Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 4 Runs | IRE: 120/9

  • WB Rankin5 (5b)
  • WK McCallan2 (6b)
  • Mohammad Amir4-0-19-1
  • Umar Gul4-0-19-2

In the end, a very comfortable win for Pakistan. Now, if Shoaib Malik can find his form with the bat, they would get even more threatening. Afridi spent some time in the middle and looked good for his 24. The puzzles are slowly falling in place.

Salim: "Shades of '92 - Crap to start with but great winners in the END.." Several Pakistan fans have written in with similar sentiment. Time will tell.

Porterfield: "We are going to take a lot out of this World Cup. Yes, the Irish cricket is going from strength to strength."

Younis Khan: "I still believe that we were short by 15 runs. But they did bowl well in the end. Today, the fielding was good, we had some partnerships and we had our spinners and Umer Gul."

Man of the match Akmal : "I love this pitch, which is good for batting.:" Asked whether Pakistan can win the Cup, Akmal says, "Definitely, Inshallah."

On that note, this is Sriram Veera, signing off. Thanks for joining. Will luke will take over the commentary for the West Indies v England game. Alvida!
