Historic moment as Kevin O’Brien scores Ireland’s first Test century:

Kevin O Brien

Kevin O’Brien scored Ireland’s first Test hundred when he reached three figures against Pakistan amid emotional scenes at Malahide this evening.

A two off left-arm quick Mohammad Amir saw O’Brien to his hundred in 186 balls, including 10 fours, sparking jubilant celebrations from the Ireland dressing room and all four corners of the ground.

It was the 34-year-old first century for Ireland since he made the fastest-ever World Cup hundred by any batsman, off 50 balls, against England at Bangalore in 2011.

O’Brien’s brilliant innings has helped Ireland to 302/7 heading towards the close of play on day four, with the hosts holding a lead of 122 with three second innings wickets in hand.
