Scotland moved into second place in the Intercontinental Cup table with a seven-wicket victory against UAE in Sharjah although it wasn't without a few nervous moments. Chasing 114 they slipped to 40 for 3 before an unbroken fourth-wicket stand between Majid Haq and Richie Berrington ensured no further problems.

UAE had made Scotland work hard on the third day but late strikes boosted the visitors and the last three wickets could only add another 32 runs on the final morning. Safyaan Sharif claimed two of the scalps while Haq took the other to finish with 3 for 72 from 49.2 overs of hard work.

The home side, though, didn't give up as Scotland's top three were removed with 40 on the board. However, the in-form Berrington, who hit 110 in the first innings, steadied the chase alongside the experienced Haq as the pair played positively.

The result leaves Scotland 18 points behind Ireland while UAE are clumped in a tight mid-table where six points separate Netherlands in six and UAE in third.
