Scorecard

Ireland's rain-affected match against Canada was frustratingly cut short with no play possible on the fourth and final day.

Despite the draw, both sides scraped three points which has closed the gap for Ireland on third-placed Kenya, whose loss in form should make for a fascinating conclusion to this year's competition. Ireland trail Kenya by four points and only 10 separate the top four teams, with Namibia leading on 82.

The next match is between Netherlands and Kenya on August 16.
