Scotland 166 for 9 beat Leicestershire 101 for 7 by 12 runs (D/L method)

Scotland beat Leicestershire by 12 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method in their Clydesdale Bank 40 clash at Mannofield Park in Aberdeen. Scotland made 166 for 9 from their 40 overs, Claude Henderson returning figures of 4 for 25. Leicestershire's reply was disrupted by rain and they were limited to 101 for 7 as they chased 113 from 21 overs, James Benning scoring 42 from 41 balls.

Leicestershire struck early after Scotland had won the toss and elected to bat, Harry Gurney dismissing Fraser Watts for one. Scotland then lost four wickets for eight runs to slip from 42 for 1 to 50 for 5 as 38-year-old slow left-armer Henderson did most of the damage, getting rid of Ryan Flannigan (13), George Bailey (four) and Dougie Lockhart (one).

Richie Berrington provided some resistance with 46 from 59 balls before he became Henderson's fourth victim, while Majid Haq smacked a valuable 29 not out off 27 balls.

Leicestershire opener Benning did his best to help overhaul the target, revised down after the rain delay, but was offered little support by his team-mates. He was run out by Gordon Goudie to leave the visitors on 57 for 3 in the 13th over. Wayne White also contributed an unbeaten 27 off 28 balls, but the wickets continued to fall at a steady rate as the visitors fell just short.
