Intercontinental Cup semis delayed

Cricinfo staff

The semi-finals of the Intercontinental Cup have been put back 24 hours following the death of His Highness Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the president of the United Arab Emirates.

Both matches were due to start in Sharjah on November 16, but that would be the last day of the official state mourning and so the ICC agreed to the postponement. As a result, the final will now begin on November 21.

UAE meet Canada and Scotland face Kenya in the semi-finals.
