Ireland's second Twenty20 international against Scotland was abandoned without a ball bowled due to persistent rain.

Play was scheduled to start at 5.30pm at Bready Cricket Club but after waiting almost two hours for rain to cease and the outfield to dry, umpires Mark Hawthorne and Nigel Llong were forced to admit defeat to the weather.

Scotland lead the series 1-0 going into Sunday's final match, having won Thursday's first game by six wickets on the back of Matthew Cross' brilliant innings of 60.
