There we go - what a thrilling game! The Dutch players look dejected as they applaud the Scots off the field, they looks delighted with the victory as it was a close fought game all the way through. Cooper was the top scorer with 75, and was left stranded for support at the end, with only Kervezee (49) and Bukhari (41) offering any real support. Majid Haq was the star bowler, with excellent figures of 4-33 off his allotted ten overs.

It was a relief for both teams that we got a full game of cricket played thanks to the Scottish weather, and the Dutch will be disappointed after building a solid foundation in the first half of their innings. Do join us at 10.45am tomorrow for the second ODI, the weather forecast for Aberdeen is good and entrance is free at Mannofield if you want to come join us.

Thanks for logging on with us today. From me Callum Stewart and the rest of the team, it's good evening and we will see you tomorrow.

Davey to Cooper, OUT, gone! Game over as Cooper gets down on one knee to try and flick the ball in to the leg-side, he gets it all wrong and the ball takes out his leg-stump

TLW Cooper b Davey 75 (139m 103b 2x4 1x6) SR: 72.81

Davey to Cooper, 2 runs, pulled across the line to deep midwicket, quick running for two
Davey to Westdijk, 1 run, chip and run to short cover, they have to run it. Drummond shies at the bowler's end and the ball misses the stumps by an inch, that would have been game over
Davey to Cooper, 1 run, hit hard back at the bowler, hits him hard on the foot deflecting to long-on, but they can't squeeze in a second run
Davey to Cooper, no run, tries to go leg-side but short fine leg fields
Davey to Cooper, no run, tries a reverse sweep and gets it all wrong, the ball cannons away off his pads
