Ireland vs Pakistan Only Test, Day 2 Live Score
After rain played the spoilsport on Day 1 on Ireland's Test debut against Pakistan, it is a bright and sunny day, to begin with on day 3 at the Mahalide Stadium, Dublin.
There was drama at an initially sun-drenched Malahide right from Saturday's first ball of this stand-alone match.
That pressure ultimately told with the final delivery of the eighth over when Rankin had Azhar Ali all squared-up.
At lunch, Rankin had impressive figures of one wicket for seven runs in seven overs, with Murtagh - 1-12 in seven - only marginally more expensive.
Former England one-day worldwide Joyce, at 39 the oldest Test debutant since Australia's Bryce McGain made his bow aged 36 in 2009, cashed in with some elegant shots including a cover-driven four off Mohammad Abbas.
But Haris Sohail quickly became the next victim as he was out for 31 and Babar Azam made 14 before Murtagh struck to reduce Pakistan to 104-4.
The 22-year-old was left flat on the ground and needed treatment on the field, but the nephew of Pakistan selection chief and former captain Inzamam-ul-Haqrecovered to bat.
However, it did not take long for Ireland to make a stunning double strike.
"It looked like Pakistan maybe had the ball reversing slightly towards the end".
As Ireland limped past fifty, leg-spinner Shadab Khan got into the act, picking two wickets in one over to leave hosts uncertain of getting past 100. That all changed after lunch though as the visitors lost four wickets in the second session of the day.
"The noise for those first couple of wickets was great, they really got behind us and that helped with the adrenaline pumping and gave us an extra spring in our steps as bowlers", said Murtagh.
Shafiq was the next to go, for a well-made 62, and it was Rankin that got him with a short ball.
Joyce was on nought when he edged Amir to wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed, with the diving Pakistan captain unable to cling on to the low chance. Abbas returned to claim his fourth and Shadab finished off the innings but Wilson's unbeaten 33 was symbolic of Irish resolve - a foundation which Joyce and Porterfield built on doughtily during the evening sunshine. "We're still hugely proud and there are still four days to go".
Ironically, 10 minutes after umpiresRichard Illingworth and Nigel Llong abandoned play, the sun came out, and frustrated spectators were asking had the decision been made too soon?
