Rain gets the better of Scotland and Holland

Scotland's rain-ruined Intercontinental Cup match against Holland ended in a predictable draw in Aberdeen.

Majid Haq was left on 120 not out as Scotland amassed 309, with Mudassar Bukhari securing an impressive haul of five for 79.

Holland then reached 306 for eight, after openers Michael Swart and Neil Kruger had put on a 140-run stand.

A result was never likely after the first two days of play were lost to rain.

At the close of day three Scotland were 237 for three, with Haq 89 not out.

The left-hander continued to play patiently, but Scotland's promising start to the innings was soon forgotten as Haq regularly lost partners.

With a result nigh on impossible, Holland's openers sought time at the crease.

Swart and Kruger each reached their half centuries before Scotland finally prised them apart.

Mommsen trapped Swart caught and bowled for 64, while Kruger fell nine runs short of a century as Mommsen struck again, Gordon Goudie taking the catch.

Mommsen claimed a third wicket when Alastair Evans caught Dutch skipper Peter Borren.

The Dutch finished with a floursih as Bukhari hit four sixes as he raced to 50, before being bowled by Haq, while Tom de Grooth added 43.
