Scotland 317 (MacLeod 145) beat
Netherlands 115-7 by 144 runs (D/L) method
Second one-day game, Glasgow

Calum MacLeod struck a magnificent 145 as Scotland levelled their three-match one-day series against the Netherlands in Glasgow with a 144-run win.

After the home side were bowled out for 317, the Netherlands had limped to 115 for seven when rain stopped play after 22.3 overs of their innings.

They were well short of the Duckworth/Lewis par score and Scotland's victory now sets up a decider on Friday (4th July).

It proved to be a memorable day for Scotland's Gavin Main, who struck with the first ball he bowled in international cricket.

MacLeod had earlier raced to a 99-ball century before Ashan Malik picked up six for 50 for the Dutch.

Michael Leask then bagged four wickets for Scotland and pulled off a run out to put Scotland in command well before the rain arrived.

The Netherlands won the opening game by 44 runs.
