Ireland rally after Pakistan enforce follow-on
Hosts 116 runs behind tourists at stumps Ireland vs Pakistan Scoreboard
DUBLIN, May 13, (AFP): Ed Joyce and William Porterfield restored a measure of batting pride in Ireland’s inaugural Test with an unbroken opening partnership after the hosts were made to follow-on by Pakistan at Malahide on Sunday.
But come the third day’s close, Ireland remained in trouble at 64 without loss in their second innings — still 116 runs adrift of Pakistan’s 310 for nine declared after a meagre 130 all out first time around.
But with Mick Jagger, a lifelong cricket fan, among the crowd — the Rolling Stones play a concert at Dublin’s Croke Park on Thursday — the openers at least gave Ireland some satisfaction in a day dominated by Pakistan.
