Defending 225, Bilal Khan bowled with sheer pace and picked up early wickets in the form of Kyle Coetzer and Chris Mcbride. Matthew Cross soon followed the suit and Scotland were 3 down for 21 runs. Richie Berrington and George Munsey revived the innings and brought hope back for Scotland. Berrington was retired hurt in his 70's.
