  Scotland innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KJ Coetzer c Smith b Starc 0 11 11 0 0 0.00
2.5 94.7 mph, gone! This time it was just back of a length and close enough to off stump for the leaden-footed Coetzer to edge rather than miss as he aimed a massive back-foot punch, looking to go through the covers. Flies to Smith at shoulder height, and he takes it easily 8/1
View dismissal CS MacLeod c Warner b Starc 22 31 19 5 0 115.78
6.6 93.6 mph, ouch. That was short, with a little bit of width on it, and MacLeod has played the cut fairly well, but this one he pops into the air, and straight into the hands of backward point 36/2
View dismissal MW Machan c Faulkner b Cummins 40 63 35 6 0 114.28
16.2 88.3 mph, and Cummins is among the wickets now. It's shortish, on the hips. Machan shuffles across to try and tuck it into the leg side. It gets big on him and he ends up popping it in the air, offering a simple catch to Faulkner at long leg 78/6
View dismissal PL Mommsen* c Starc b Watson 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
7.3 85.1 mph, excellent bouncer from Watson, and Mommsen goes second ball. Has to drag the pull from over his right shoulder, and he could only top-edge it to Starc stationed at backward square leg 37/3
View dismissal FRJ Coleman c Clarke b Johnson 0 12 7 0 0 0.00
10.1 92.2 mph, Johnson gets into the party now. Back of a length, fourth-stump, angling away. No footwork in that attempted back-foot punch, and Clarke dives to his right from second slip to grab the edge, lovely low catch 50/4
View dismissal RD Berrington c Warner b Maxwell 1 5 6 0 0 16.66
11.1 52.6 mph, and he strikes first ball, with a fairly rubbish ball. It's floated up outside off, it's a half-volley, and Berrington slices his drive in the air, straight to Warner at cover 51/5
View dismissal MH Cross c †Haddin b Cummins 9 24 20 2 0 45.00
16.4 89.2 mph, another. It's short on a fifth-stump line, and Cross' weight was on the front foot. He was in no position to play that, it got big on him, and kissed the shoulder of his bat through to the keeper 79/7
View dismissal JH Davey b Starc 26 36 35 4 0 74.28
25.2 90.5 mph, clatter. Off-stump yorker, and Davey is late bringing his bat down. It actually straightened a touch and went past the outside edge 130/9
View dismissal RML Taylor c †Haddin b Cummins 0 13 6 0 0 0.00
20.1 91.0 mph, gone, eight down. That's a length ball, angling into the corridor. No footwork from Taylor, not the first Scotland batsman to suffer from that issue, and he pokes hesitantly and nicks it through to the keeper 95/8
MA Leask not out 23 21 11 4 0 209.09
View dismissal I Wardlaw b Starc 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
25.4 89.4 mph, boom, and that off stump takes another beating. It's full and fast and Wardlaw gave himself room to play through the off side, bat was nowhere near it in the end. Again it straightened off the pitch 130/10

View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Leask b Wardlaw 47 55 47 7 2 100.00
13.2 79.5 mph, taken! That's brilliant from Leask at the deep square leg boundary. It was short again, angling into the body, and Clarke pulled it in the air, to the fielder's right. Sprints quickly across, and throws himself across to come up with the ball in his right hand 92/3
View dismissal AJ Finch c Coleman b Taylor 20 14 10 3 1 200.00
3.6 81.5 mph, gone! Another drive in the air, but this time he's hit it too close to cover, who takes it well, low, in both hands, diving forward. Taylor did well to bowl it full again, but not as wide as the previous ball, and Finch pushed hard at it, way out in front of his body 30/1
View dismissal SR Watson c †Cross b Davey 24 36 23 4 0 104.34
12.6 77.3 mph, got him. Slower ball, angling down leg. Watson goes for the lap-sweep, and ends up top-edging it, loops into the keeper's gloves, he only had to move a short way to his left 88/2
