Netherlands 308 (Bashir 102, Javed 4-49) drew with UAE 74 for 2
Netherlands and the UAE shared seven points each after the Intercontinental Cup match ended in a draw after no play was possible on the fourth day in a rainy Deventer. The result meant that both teams are now placed in the middle of the table with 30 points each. The highlight of the match was debutant Shahbaz Bashir's century on the third day which helped Netherlands score 308 runs.
The two teams will play two ODIs - Rotterdam on July 21 and Deventer on July 23 - but the possibility of rain being a factor remains high after two full days were lost in Deventer.
