Third day’s play between Scotland and UAE washed out - Cricket News
The match has been severely hit by rain so far, and only 66 overs of play has been possible in all.
The third day’s play in the ICC Intercontinental Cup match between Scotland and the United Arab Emirates was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to bad weather at the Cambusdoon New Ground in Ayr on Thursday (August 11).
 
The match has been severely hit by rain so far, and only 66 overs of play has been possible in all, with UAE stranded on 212 for 5 in a match between teams looking for the first victory of the competition.
 
UAE had slumped to 33 for 3 and then 66 for 4 on day one before a 123-run fifth-wicket stand in 197 deliveries between Shaiman Anwar (78) and Rameez Shahzad (74*) had lifted it to 198 for 5 in 59 overs at stumps. Only seven overs were possible on the second day as UAE added 14 runs to its day one tally without further damage. Unless something dramatic happens on the final day, and if weather permits, both teams will still be searching for their first win at the conclusion of this fourth-round game.
 
Scotland is currently fifth in the eight-team table with 23 points from three games, while UAE has lost all its three previous matches and is in last place without a point to its name.
