Full commentary

Great knocks from Smith and Hamilton in particular seeing the Scots home in a game where they were always in control with plenty of wickets in hand

Scotland will be pleased with their win today but they face a very different test tomorrow against the Kiwis. Ireland will be leaving Scottish soil demoralised after loosing to their lower ranked rivals and an embarrassing record defeat.

Gavin Hamilton claimed that he was "ecstatic" to get his first ODI 100 and claimed it wasn't easy although he made it look simple to the many spectators here at Mannofield today.

When asked about the mixed up shirt incident he claimed that his shirt was binned last night by someone who thought it was rubbish as the players left some of their kit in bin bags. He added after scoring his first ODI 100 that he would try and hold on to the shirt.

The stunning catch he took he passed off as luck as he misjudged it completely to start off with. He also added that Scotland were "gelling as a side" and when asked about their chances tomorrow stated "never say never" but admitted they would have to limit New Zealand to a decent score".

Kyle McCallan described his sides performance as an "improvement" but none-the-less "disappointing".

Thanks for joining our coverage today of this ODI and tomorrow we will be bringing you updates from Scotland v New Zealand. Tickets are available on the gates at £25 (£15 concessions) and the weather forecast is good.

Tickets will be available on the gates tomorrow from 10.00am for the 10.45am start between Scotland and New Zealand. I'm Callum Stewart and thanks for joining us today and hope you can tune in either on line or at the ground tomorrow.
