Watch the moment Kevin O'Brien became the first Irishman to score a Test century, against Pakistan in Dublin.

Kevin O’Brien has become the first Irishman to score a Test century after achieving the feat from 186 balls against Pakistan in Dublin.

O’Brien steered Mohammad Amir through point for two to spark excitement at Malahide on day four of Ireland’s maiden Test, one which could yet end with a victory for the home side.

Ireland were asked to follow-on and began day four on 116 away from making Pakistan bat again – but O’Brien and Stuart Thompson (53) have taken the hosts’ lead above 120. SCORECARD

Maybe, just maybe…

O’Brien has previous on the big stage, of course – he blazed the fastest-ever World Cup hundred by any batsman, off 50 balls, against England in Bengaluru in 2011.
