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.

Scorecard summary
Ireland166/6(20 overs)
Scotland167/4(18.1 overs)

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.

16.6
1
Kane to Mommsen, 1 run
short again and pulled straight to square leg. A clean take might have affected a run out, it is fumbled, and the body language of the Irish fielders tells it all now. Staring defeat in the face.
16.5
1
Kane to Berrington, 1 run
an ugly hack, and gets an inside edge which nearly takes his leg stump.

1
Kane to Berrington, 1 run

4
Kane to Berrington, FOUR runs
