Ireland Stretch Pakistan in Debut Test

Ireland, in home conditions stretched Pakistan who eventually prevailed, but not without several instances when it seemed they were in danger of permitting a nation making its Test debut to win its very first Test.

Going by the showing of Ireland, I am sure they will win their first Test, especially in home conditions, sooner rather than later.

Congrats to them... Now onto the next debutant Test nation Afghanistan...

They were bowled out for 160 odd and now have conceded 150 odd for just 1 wicket...

Pakistan who languish at No. 7 take on Ireland who are making their Test debut in a few days... It is not totally outlandish to think that Ireland may actually win their debut match...smiling smiley

They have shocked Pakistan several times in the limited over version of the game, most famously in the World Cup of 2007.

Pakistan do much better in next game... So it's all set for Friday Test Debut of Ireland.

Perhaps not surprisingly the Irish team will have a couple of players who have already played Test cricket... and coincidentally that was also the case with Pakistan when Pakistan made its Test debut...smiling smiley

Wonder how many Test Debutant nations had a century maker in their very first Test... I know India didn't manage that feat...
