Rain prevents further play in Ayr, teams split points - Cricket News
All four days of the match were affected by rain.
The ICC Intercontinental Cup match between Scotland and the United Arab Emirates ended on level terms after the fourth and final day’s play was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to bad weather at Cambusdoon New Ground in Ayr on Friday (August 12).
 
All four days of the match were affected by rain – the third day’s play was also washed out, while only 59 overs were possible on the first day and seven overs on the second, at the end of which UAE had reached 212 for 5.
 
UAE had slumped to 33 for 3 and then 66 for 4 on the opening day before a 123-run fifth-wicket stand in 197 deliveries between Shaiman Anwar (78) and Rameez Shahzad lifted it to 198 for 5 in 59 overs at stumps.
 
UAE inched its way to 212 for 5 on the second morning with Shahzad unbeaten on 74 and Ahmed Raza batting on nine when the last ball of the game was bowled.
 
Neither Scotland nor UAE has won a game in the competition so far, but Scotland has 30 points from four games – having lost only once – to be at No. 5, while UAE is down at the bottom of the eight-team table with seven points from four games.
