Scotland 24 for 4 (Brown 2*, McCallum 0*, Johnston 3-12) and 265 drew with Ireland 174 (Porterfield 48, Brown 5-37)

Rain wiped out the final day at Aberdeen ruining Scotland's slim chances of victory against Ireland.

There was no play possible yesterday either, frustrating the home side after Dougie Brown had taken five wickets for Scotland to put them in a very strong position against Ireland after the first innings, as they dismissed them for just 174. By the close Ireland had Scotland in all sorts of trouble at 24 for 4, leaving Scotland with a 115-run advantage.
