Azhar Mahmood speaking at the end of today's play.

"The day went well for us, we bowled them out and made them follow-on but unfortunately, we dropped a couple of catches due to which they are 64/0"

"Tomorrow is another day and we will try and get them out"

"We declared because the game wasn't moving and we thought, we will get a chance to bowl 2 spells"

"We got 3 wickets in that session (before Lunch) and that helped us as we were successful in getting them all-out quickly"

"If you look at the FC careers of Ed Joyce and William Porterfield, you will see that they together have about 25000 runs"

"They are good players and if you drop their catches then they will make use of those opportunities":

"We came to Ireland last year as well to play One-Day cricket and people really support cricket":

"It augurs well [for the game] that the Irish team have been given Test status and it's great that we are their opponents in their first Test match"

"Amir has a chronic knee problem which slightly flared up"

"He got treatment [for that] and we will assess tomorrow morning"

"Hopefully he will be OK tomorrow to bowl for us"

"He's having treatment tonight and he will also have ice treatment tomorrow and hopefully he will be fine"

"He's had this problem before on his left knee"

"He [Amir] is having treatment; The physio can tell you better [information]"

"He came back after 5 years and he has played every format for us; we have to manage his workload"

"Maybe this is a sign for us to see in the future where he [Amir] stands"

"We have bunch of new guys coming up and we want to have Test bowlers separate from the One-Day and T20 bowlers; We are working on that and hopefully we can come up with something"

"We want him to run in and bowl for us":

"I have seen that due to workload, their body can't take it and they just manage to play one or 2 formats of the game"

"It is a concern for us [about Amir] and hopefully, we will manage his workload better":

"You never know about the weather here and we want to win the Test match, which is why we enforced the follow-on"

"Hopefully we can come tomorrow, take early wickets and take the game away from Ireland"

"A heavy roller went on the pitch so it's slightly slower"
