Ireland v Kenya - no result
Kenya's disappointing tour of the British Isles ended in a fittingly anticlimactic fashion when their third and final ODI against Ireland at Stormont was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
After a week of heavy rain, the prospects of any play were slim, and after an 11 o'clock inspection the umpires decided that the bowlers' run-ups at the City End were too soft for the match to commence.
It was the second abandonment in three days at the Stormont ground - on Monday, the second ODI was washed out after only eight overs, which left Ireland as the victors in the three-match series, following their 33-run win in Sunday's opening fixture.
