Rain forces Ireland one more day for Test debut against Pakistan
DUBLIN - Ireland will not make their much-awaited historic Test debut until Saturday after the first day of their match against Pakistan was washed out.

Persistent rain in Malahide meant the historic first ball, scheduled to be bowled at 11:00 local time on Friday, had to be delayed.



The match is now a four-day Test and the follow-on on any of the team will be imposed on 150 runs rather than 200.

Ireland was expected to enter the cricket ground in what would have deemed a historic moment in their cricketing history. As test debutants, the Irish have a lot to prove as they are yet to take on the Pakistan cricket team — known for its unpredictability.

The Pakistani cricket team will not be taking the Irish lightly, because Ireland will look to do what no side has done in 141 years: win their inaugural test match in Malahide, Dublin starting today.

Ireland will become the first team to debut in the longest format of the game since Bangladesh in 2000, after being awarded full member status last June along with Afghanistan.
