Kevin O'Brien slams ton in Ireland's inaugural Test

O'Brien leads Irish fightback with century on debut

That win, coupled with another big upset by the Irish against Pakistan in Kingston, Jamaica at the previous World Cup - where O'Brien was there at the finish alongside Trent Johnston - kickstarted the push for Ireland to get Test status.

Monday also saw Pakistan's Mohammad Amir take his 100th Test wicket, but the paceman was struggling with a knee injury.

"There's no reason why we can't (win)", added O'Brien, whose 50-ball hundred against England at Bangalore in 2011 remains the quickest scored in a World Cup.

"If I can continue on tomorrow (Tuesday) for another hour and a half, that 118 changes to 170-odd, this could top it".

Ireland began day four of the only Test against Pakistan on 64 without loss but found Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Abbas hard to handle.

The O'Brien family was well represented for the historic occasion, with O'Brien joking that he had about "85 whatsapps" to trawl through later that evening.

Ireland were 319 for 7 in their second innings and lead Pakistan by 139 runs after the fourth day of their one-off Test at Malahide Castle.

It was just after 6.15pm that Kevin O'Brien pushed a ball from Mohammad Amir through the covers for runs that made him a national cricketing hero, for the second time in his career.

Both he and Tyrone Kane enjoyed the luck of the Irish at the end, with the former almost playing on to Abbas in the final over, but the pair carried their bats to conclude a remarkable day for the home team.

While it may not ultimately affect the result, a turning point came with another costly drop from Pakistan, Thompson spilled behind the stumps by Sarfraz Ahmed, when he had scored just six runs and the score was 168/6 - when he was eventually dismissed by a ripper from Shadab Khan, he had made 53 and added 103 more.

It wasn't for want of trying but insane running continued to be a feature of the first hour of the day with Niall fortunate that a throw missed the stumps as he dived in to avoid being the second player to get a pair.

At first he was in partnership, once again, with Paul Stirling but by the 58th over Abbas was getting good reverse swing and it did it for the Middlesex professional, the sixth lbw victim of the match.

After a spell of two wickets for 10 runs in seven overs, including three maidens, Amir left the field some 25 minutes before the scheduled lunch break.

Ireland still have a chance of victory in their inaugural Test against Pakistan thanks to a century from Kevin O'Brien.
