Ireland secured an unassailable 2-0 lead in their three-match T20 series against Scotland thanks to a 16-run Duckworth-Lewis method win in a weather-curtailed contest in Edinburgh.

Rain meant the start of the match was delayed, then when the action got underway Saskia Horley shone with the bat with 44 as Scotland made 126-8.

Ireland were 44-1 off five overs when rain brought play to a premature halt.

Orla Prendergast (17) and Amy Hunter (16) were the unbeaten batters.

Ireland had been reduced to 15-1 when opener Gaby Lewis was bowled by Rachel Slater in the third over.

Their superior run rate however proved decisive in the match.

Scotland’s opening batters Ailsa Lister and Sarah Bryce scored 17 apiece, before Horley, who also top-scored for the Scots in Monday’s eight-wicket defeat, blasted two sixes and three fours for her 44 off 33 balls.

Cara Murray was best of the Ireland bowlers with 2-20.

The teams will meet again in their final encounter on Thursday.

Ireland went into the series on the back of a 3-0 ODI series win over the Netherlands.
