Man of the Match
Mohammad Rizwan
Commentry
That's it from this game! One more game to follow and that'will be played on the 14th of this month. That will begin at 1930 IST (1400 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care.
Azam says it's a relief. He's pleased with the way the batters played. Adds Rizwan and Zaman played really well. Mentions they're going to give their 100 percent. Ends by saying they want to win the last game.
Mohammad Rizwan has been given the Man of the Match award!
Paul Stirling says they had a chance with 180. Admits the dropped chances cost them and it would have made a difference. Credits Pakistan for the way they played. Adds he's looking forward for the next game.
The Irish bowlers found it very tough after the movement went missing. Hume was good at the start but then their bowlers just couldn't stem the run flow. All their bowlers went the distance and Pakistan have levelled the series.
A seriously good chase by Pakistan! They lost two early but then Zaman and Rizwan batted brilliantly. They added over 100 and that more or less sealed the deal. Rizwan stayed there till the end and Azam added the finishing touches. Really comfortable in the end.
