Ireland win Dubai Tri-Series

Ireland have won the Dubai Tri-Series after their final match against Scotland was rained off on Monday.

There were hopes for a reduced 20-over contest after heavy rain and thunderstorms around the ground, but further rain just before the rescheduled start brought the tournament to a disappointing end.

"Rained off..did not see that coming. Next cricket - World Cup" tweeted Ireland batsman Ed Joyce.

Ireland secured the title with five points from their four matches, one point better off than Afghanistan and two more than Scotland.
