Ireland bowl in inaugural Test against Pakistan

The match against Pakistan at Malahide had to be abandoned

Pakistan opener Azhar Ali fended it into the legside and called for a quick single, but in scrambling through, debutant Imam-ul-Haq was clattered accidentally by Niall O'Brien and Tyrone Kane.

But the 22-year-old left-hander, who hit a hundred on his one-day global debut against Sri Lanka last year, has made fifties against both Kent and Northamptonshire in Pakistan's two warm-up matches ahead of this one-off Test.

The 22-year-old left-hander was left flat on the ground and needed several minutes´ treatment on the field.

"But we don't look at losses on a match by match basis, rather year by year, and for most countries Test cricket, apart from England-Australia which is the obvious exception, is a loss leader, with the majority of money made from white-ball cricket".

Pakistan gave Test debuts to opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq and medium-pacer Faheem Ashraf.

On Friday, the grey skies around Dublin did not dampen the enthusiasm of the fans in green, many of whom had waited decades for the day Ireland might at last be granted the opportunity to play in the five-day format so steeped in tradition. "Test cap presented to @ImamUlHaq12 & @iFaheemAshraf by @najamsethi as Ireland win the toss and decide to bowl first".

Pakistan team is in good form as it won the tour match against Northamptonshire with 9 wickets. Irish cricket board tweeted: "There will sadly be no play on day one of our first men's Test".

Cricket Ireland is set to lose around £65,000 after their first day of Test cricket was abandoned without a ball bowled.

It is a historic match for both teams and especially for Ireland.

"This rain-out will add €75,000 to the expense of staging the game", said Warren Deutrom, the CEO of Cricket Ireland.

The match will start at 3PM PST.
