Rain thwarts Ireland, Scotland take first-innings points

Ireland 202 (Porterfield 77, Haq 5-30, Goudie 4-58) and 303 (Porterfield 118, White 55, Goudie 4-61, Haq 4-88) drew with Scotland 208 (Sheikh 100*, West 7-88) and 72 for 5
Scorecard

Rain came to Scotland's rescue on the final day of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Ireland in Aberdeen, ensuring that play was washed out and the hosts won first-innings points even though they were likely to be defeated had the weather stayed clear at Mannofield Park.

The advantage was with Ireland at the end of the third day with Scotland on 72 for 5, needing another 226 runs with only the lower half of their batting order left. But heavy overnight showers and then some more this morning forced play to be delayed at first and finally abandoned at 2.42 pm.

Scotland and Ireland claim three points each from the draw while the hosts gained another six because of a six-run first-innings lead.
