ODI: Ireland v Pakistan

A four from the last ball of the game by Kevin O’Brien saw Ireland secure a draw in Thursday’s rain affected One-Day International against Pakistan [Duckworth-Lewis applied].  Ireland’s 275 for 5 included 103 runs from 107 balls by Paul “that kid is a freak” Stirling.  Going into today’s second ODI in the two game series, Ireland were confident of an upset against the test match playing Pakistan.  Put in to bat, Ireland made a defendable 229 for 9.  And they’ve picked up some early Pakistan wickets with the top four batsmen falling for 17 runs from 9.2 overs.  Cricinfo over-by-over text commentary here.
