Match tied (D/L method) | Ireland Vs Pakistan Live Score, 3rd Match

That's all we have for you from here. Do join us for the 2nd ODI on Sunday. Until then good bye.....
Kevin O'Brien is the Man of the Match for his blistering innings of 84 from just 47 balls.
What an amazing match this turned out to be in the end. There were lots of stoppages due to rain in the 1st innings and the match was reduced to 47 overs. Despite a tough D/L adjusted target, Ireland fought well, thanks to a superb century from Stirling and some amazing hitting by Kevin O'Brien helped them come closer to the Pak total and they just prevailed in the end by 1 run. Pakistani bowling was horrible and even their experienced spinner, Ajmal went for 71 runs in his 10 overs.
