    Not sure there will be many, but here we are. Ireland currently being spun out by Mohammed Nabi and Rashid Khan in their debut test against the Afghans

    There is an allegedly "official" stream on YouTube but not sure if the link is allowed?

    Ireland 7/69 at lunch. Nabi 3/6, Rashid 2/5, Yamin Ahmadzai 2/33

    As an aside, I don't buy into the "Rashid Khan is 42 years old" theory, but surely CricInfo have the wrong player or the wrong DOB for this Waqar fellow. Unless he's got a combover at 17

    Afghanistan scored 314 in their innings for a lead of 140 on the 1st innings.

    Ireland 1/22 still 120 behind.

    Afghanistan in the box seat but if Ireland can set anything over 100 it might get tricky.

    could go down to the wire

    Kinda hope Ireland get up, just cause they are expected to get thrashed

    I know its been chatted about in the past, but would be nice if either of these nations came out here to play at least 2 tests before our official start to the summer, top end, Dalton park dont care where. They say its not a money winner but you could play them in the season we have india or the ashes which are money spinners.


    PS: Dont mind if we do separate threads for each test match

    Afghanistan win by 7 wickets.

    (Not) very interesting stats:

    First new test winner since 2005 when Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe.

    Shortest time and number of matches to notch first test victory (Not including Australia or England).
