Dublin, May 15 (AFP/APP):Pakistan were 52 for three, needing a further 108 runs to reach their victory target of 160, at lunch on the fifth day of their one-off Test against Ireland at Malahide on Tuesday.
Ireland, made to follow on, scented a dramatic victory in their debut men’s Test as they reduced Pakistan to 14 for three inside five overs.
But Imam-ul-Haq, like the whole Ireland team also making his Test debut, led a Pakistan recovery although the match was still very much in the balance.
At lunch the left-handed opener, the nephew of Pakistan selection chief and former Test batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq, was 33 not out, with Babar Azam unbeaten on nine.
