Scotland batsmen firm on third day
Stumps Day 3 Scotland 237 for 3 (Haq 89*, Flannigan 60) v Netherlands
Two very wet days have robbed the four-day Intercontinental Cup fixture between Scotland and Netherlands in Aberdeen of the chance of a result, but that did not stop the Scotland batsmen from churning out determined innings after being put into bat on the third day.
Mudassar Bukhari broke through for Netherlands in the 13th over, but thereafter wickets were at a premium. Ryan Flannigan and Majid Haq put on a century stand before Bukhari struck a second time, removing Flannigan for 60. Haq carried on, adding another 92 runs for the third-wicket with Kyle Coetzer. Netherlands captain Peter Borren struck in the final session, trapping Coetzer lbw for 52 just before the rain returned to end the day's play.
