3 July 2008 (50-over match)

Gillespie to Watson, OUT, oh dear, he's pitched it up and Watson tries to defend up high and its nicks off his bat and down on to the stumps...not been a good couple of days for the captain.

RR Watson b Gillespie 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Scotland 1/1   GM Hamilton 1* (2b)   MR Gillespie 0.4-0-1-1

Gillespie to Hamilton, OUT, He's gone! Shorter ball catches him off balance and it clips the top of the bails. Scotland in trouble now...

GM Hamilton b Gillespie 6 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Scotland 12/2   MQ Sheikh 0* (5b)   MR Gillespie 1.4-0-1-2

Oram to Poonia, OUT, he tries to flick it away to the leg side and a slight edge takes it through to McCullum who takes a good diving catch to his right

Elliott to Sheikh, OUT, He's gone! He went to try and angle another one down to third man and doesn't get all of it before playing it on to his stumps. That's a long walk back to the pavillion in the rain

Scotland 66/5   NFI McCallum 2* (5b)   GD Elliott 1.5-0-4-1

Oram to McCallum, OUT, And another one. This time he leans forward to block. There was a nick from a bat in there somewhere but the umpire judges it to be bat first and sends him walking

NFI McCallum lbw b Oram 2 (18m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

Scotland 68/6   RD Berrington 2* (9b)   JDP Oram 4.4-1-13-3

Elliott to Berrington, OUT, Great ball there and this one's alot more plum than the last, he can't flick it off his legs fast again and he has to go

Scotland 75/7   JAR Blain 1* (9b)   GD Elliott 4.1-0-12-2

Elliott to Rogers, OUT, Gone for a golden duck. He tries to defend at it carries through to McCullum's gloves and he spent longer walking to the crease than the time he stayed there

Scotland 75/8   JAR Blain 1* (9b)   GD Elliott 4.2-0-12-3
