Bangladesh made it two wins in two for their warm-up matches so far with a comfortable victory against Scotland. Abdur Razzak took three wickets as Scotland limped to 152 for 9 from their 50 overs. After an early wobble at 7 for 2, Bangladesh lost just one more wicket as they knocked off the runs with 15.5 overs to spare.

Habibul Bashar made an unbeaten fifty, and he was joined by Mohammad Ashraful who struck 23 not out as Bangladesh secured the win. Sakib al Hasan just missed out on a half-century, he made 45. Scotland's tails were up when their opening pace pair of Paul Hoffmann and John Blain each struck to dismiss Bangladesh's openers. Shahriar Nafees fell for 7, to Hoffmann, and Tamim Iqbal followed the next over for a fourth-ball duck.

The damage had already been done in Scotland's innings, though, as they subsided to Razzak's spin. He took 3 for 25 from his ten overs. Mohammad Rafique grabbed two victims, and the rest of the wickets were shared out.
