Kevin O'Brien scripts another milestone for Ireland

A magnificent rearguard hundred from Kevin O'Brien gave Ireland a lead of 139 in their maiden Test and the prospect of giving Pakistan an awkward run chase.
 
O'Brien was 118 not out at stumps and the home team was leading by 139 runs.
 
A thick outside edge through point off Mohammad Amir brought O'Brien to a milestone that held significance far beyond the personal.
 
Amir's three wickets earlier in the day had put Pakistan into a position from which an innings win seemed entirely possible - even likely - but O'Brien and Stuart Thompson combined for a 114-run rearguard that not only pushed Ireland in front and burnished local pride, but allowed them to sleep on the possibility of another famous upset.
 
Batting first Pakistan made 310 for 9 and in reply, Ireland made 130 in their first innings.
 
AT stumps on day 4, they were on 319 for 7.
