With no play at Forthill Scotland and Ireland will meet in a sixty over a side match tomorrow weather permitting.
Play was not possible at Lochside Park until 3.25 due to overnight rain and a damp outfield. Denmark captain Aftab Ahmed won the toss and elected to field. He opened the Danish attack along with Shehzad Ahmed.
Only nine overs were possible before the heavens opened up with the Netherlands on 10 for no wicket. One hundred and seven minutes were lost before play recommenced at twenty to six with a minimum of 23 overs to be bowled.
On the resumption the Netherlands were cautious in their approach as they looked to see the day out without any loss of wickets. However in the eleventh over captain Aftab Ahmed took a smart return catch to dismiss Mels Hartman. With the score on 10.
A further 21 runs were added by Allema and Visee before Visee advanced down the pitch to a Suleman Arshad delivery and was beaten in the flight to give Kasper Blumenau an easy stumping.
Tim Griijters joined his captain and together the took the score with a flurry of boundaries to 51 at close of play with Allema on 26 and Gruijters on 10
