Scotland win by 29 runs. The Canadians put in a great effort with the bat on day 3 but just didn't from enough solid partnerships. The Scots will be relieved as they were in the driving seat from day 1 and it would have been a horrible shock had the Canadians pulled off the run chase.

A good winning start to the ICC I'Cup for Scotland who now play Ireland in August while Canada play the Netherlands later this month in the 4-day format. Both teams will now be looking forward to the two ODI's next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Both matches will be held here at Mannofield in Aberdeen so if you can't join me there then we will have ball-by-ball coverage here on with me Callum Stewart. For now it's goodbye from Scotland and have a good evening.

MacLeod to Barnett, OUT, that's it! MacLeod finds that elusive wicket Scotland needed. A great ball which escapes the defence of Barnett and rattles his off-stump. Game over but what a fight from the Canadians
