Test cricket is here. What are the plans for this historic occasion?

Heavy rain forecast for later on Day 2. Day 3 and Day 4 weather neither here nor there. Day 1 and Day 5 pretty clear. Isn't that enough time for Pakistan to run through Ireland twice? Why is the draw so short?

Did me over too. I was set to wait for draw backs at 4.3 and 4.4 to go mildly green and would have laid again somewhere in the mid 3s but ended up buying a lot of draw at 3.6 and 3.7.

I’d back Pak from that position. Your draw isn’t coming in, which is a huge shame. I’m already heavy green Pak so appeals less from my book. Of course you need to look for value whatever but much though I hate backing tight Pak prices, have to think 1.36 or so is okay value.

I usually do. I’m a big fan of aggressive early draw lays if the price is low, as long as there’s not too much rain due after day 1 and 2. Sure, you get taken for £5k (in each of two tests played concurrently) when early rain water logs the pitch now and again but it’s a big winner long term.
