Ireland 99 for 1 (Stirling 50*) trail Scotland 138 by 39 runs
Just 21 overs were possible on day two in Dublin as Ireland were robbed of the chance to build a solid first innings lead over Scotland.
They are in an excellent place to do so with Paul Stirling unbeaten on fifty and John Anderson combining to share an unbroken partnership of 50. Stirling went to his half-century in 73 balls with a single in what proved to be the final over of the day.
Rain arrived just after lunch and came and went throughout the afternoon. The umpires gave the ground every chance to dry up but the showers proved too persistent and play was eventually called off at 5pm.
