Ireland receive wake-up call with second defeat

If John Bracewell, the new head coach, wasn't fully aware of the size of the task that lies ahead, then successive defeats to Scotland will have highlighted the challenge he faces.

Scorer: James Gray | Commentator: James Gray

That's another fine win for Scotland. Ireland were much better than they were with the bat on Thursday, but in the end just bowled too short on a pretty lifeless wicket. That's everything from me, but Justin will be back tomorrow with the final game of this series. I've been James Gray and it's been just lovely.
