Netherlands 306-8 (Kruger 91)
ICC Intercontinental Cup 2011-13, Aberdeen

The opening game of the 2011-13 ICC Intercontinental Cup saw the Netherlands and Scotland draw a game that was severely hampered by bad weather in Aberdeen.

There was no play possible on the opening two days and after Scotland were bowled out for 309, the Netherlands closed on 306 for eight and both sides took seven points from the game.

Majid Haq scored 120 for Scotland, while Ryan Flannigan (60) and Kyle Coetzer (52) made half-centuries while for the Netherlands, Neil Kruger hit 91, Michael Swart 64 and Mudassar Bukhari 50.

Bukhari had taken five for 79 to finish off Scotland's innings and his knock included four sixes before Preston Mommsen returned three for 67.

The second match in the competition - between Ireland and Namibia - has been delayed due to the Namibia players having visa problems.
