Thats the game, Afghanistan win by 9 wickets! Brilliant batting from Sadiq and Shahzad who were 114 and 100 not out respectively! Scotland just didnt get going in the bowling department and lacked conviction throughout, with not even 1 maiden bowled.

The Scots got themselves up to a decent total in the first half, but could not do the same in the second, with Afghanistan cruising to a win comfortably with 19 overs to spare. Join me, Calum Mclaughlin, tomorrow for ODI 2 between Scotland

and Afghanistan here again at New cambusdoon, Ayr.
