Result puts the two sides in third and fourth position on the tournament points table respectively, behind Ireland and Netherlands

Rain ruins Hong Kong's I-cup clash against Scotland - Cricket News
The rain ruined the prospects of this being the maiden first-class game to be played in the country.
The Intercontinental Cup match between Hong Kong and Scotland was abandoned after four days of continuous rain, triggered by a polar vortex that hit Mong Kok, the venue for the contest, ruining the prospects of this being the maiden first-class game to be played in the country.

The unusual weather conditions in the region have resulted in temperatures dipping to a record low in recent days, and with the Mission Road Ground completely waterlogged, Steve Bernard, the match referee, and Vineet Kulkarni and Buddhi Pradhan, the on-field umpires, were left with no choice but to call the match off early on Sunday (January 24) afternoon without a ball being bowled.

The result meant Hong Kong and Scotland picked up 10 points each from the match, and are now placed third and fourth on the points table respectively, behind Ireland and Netherlands.

Papua New Guinea will take Ireland on in Townsville from Sunday in the next fixture of the tournament.
