Scotland 308 for 9 dec and 1 for 0 drew with UAE Development XI 196 (Rogers 3-36)

After the useful workout for the batsmen, Scotland's bowlers managed to find their groove before rain brought an early finish to their two-day warm-up match against a UAE Development XI in Sharjah.

The Scottish attack produced an efficient display as the UAE side were dismissed for 196, handing the visitors a lead of 112. The wickets were shared around with Glenn Rogers, a left-arm spinner, taking 3 for 36. John Blain, the paceman, took 2 for 25 and Ross Lyons finished with the same figures.

Scotland had just started their second innings when the rain arrived and their next outing is the vital Intercontinental Cup meeting with UAE, which starts on Thursday and will decide if Scotland progress to the final.
