For the moment though, it's goodbye from all of us here at the commentary desk. Hoping we don't have weather interruptions in Dharamsala on Super Sunday. See you then. Cheers!

Could feel the pain in Mommsen's voice when he said they don't have too many fixtures coming up. Hopefully those in charge take note and have teams who tour England stop over in Scotland for a series of three or five games.

Preston Mommsen: The boys are chuffed. Hopefully this will free us up, we have to keep qualifying for these kind of tournaments. We're pretty quiet from here on in, summer coming up but not many games unfortunately. We want to play more cricket. Hopefully our performances here has shown what we are capable of. It's momentous, a few cold ones will be opened tonight, hopefully it will be a good one.

Tanwir Afzal: Disappointed with the result. We showed we can do much better than this, but we will take a lot of positives, regroup and work hard on our weakness. We have an I-Cup game against Ireland coming up, that will be a good game.

Matt Machan is the Player of the Match for his two wickets. "Great day for Scottish cricket, we've got the monkey off our back. Everyone is happy. We should have won two or three games at the World Cup last year. We didn't play the best cricket this week, but happy to have won today. We wanted to restrict them to 120 odd, then had wickets in hand and got over the line."

For a while, the Scotland dressing would've held their breaths thinking we wouldn't have a contest because of the rain. But just as we approached the cut-off time, the rain cleared and the groundstaff got the game ready for a 10-over shootout.

Nabhaan: "Congratulations Scotland on your first win in an ICC event. I'm surprised it took you so long, considering how formidable a unit you are, but you got there in the end."

11:15pm Disappointment for Hong Kong, elation for Scotland. Boy, this has taken a while, hasn't it? Preston Mommsen is delighted, the coach Grant Bradburn runs up to him to give a high five. 21 attempts later, Scotland finally have something to show for at a world event. Meanwhile, this is Hong Kong's seventh consecutive loss in T20Is.

Nadeem Ahmed to Machan, SIX runs, what a way to finish! Scotland finally win a game at an ICC global event. 17 years after their first attempt. This one was nicely tossed up, he made room and then brought out the slog sweep, swung with the spin and deposited into the second tier as the dugout erupts in joy
