Sizzling Smith leads the rout

South Africa might have harboured hopes of a demolition act with the ball, after they chose to bat first in their first ever ODI against Scotland, but it was their batsmen who completed the dismantling job, completing an seven-wicket rout at Basseterre

South Africa win by 7 wickets. Another minnow bashing from them. Smith looted a 65-ball 91, de Villiers pinched a fifty and Prince got some time in the middle. Good day's work for SA.

Man of the Match Greame Smith.

This is Sriram Veera, signing off. Adios.
