Imam shines as wobbly Pakistan beat Ireland: Only Test, Day 5 (Dublin)

Imam Ul Haq hit 74 not out to prevent Ireland securing a surprise win.

Earlier, a stunning opening bowling spell by Tim Murtagh had Pakistan reeling on 14-3. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam shared a 126-run fourth wicket stand as Pakistan battled to their winning target of 160.

Kevin O'Brien's century knock ended when he was caught off his first ball of the day as Ireland folded for 339 all out. Mohammad Abbas took 5-66 for a match haul of 9 wickets.

Pakistan 310 for 9 dec (Ashraf 83, Shafiq 62, Shadab 54, Murtagh 4-45) and 160 for 5 (Imam 74*, Babar 59) beat Ireland 130 (K O'Brien 40, Abbas 4-44, Shadab 3-31) and 339 (K O'Brien 118, Thompson 55, Abbas 5-66) by five wickets.
