clipped off his legs and they run three as the fielders chase in vain at deep cover. That's it! Scotland have won
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".

slower ball catches him out and its a simple catch taken at mid-off. The dangerman is gone but surely too late now.
turned down past square leg and they take two - surely all over now...
Just 5 needed now for Scotland and they have three overs to get them
blocked back to the bowler
guided down to third man
bowled to straight outside of leg-stump
another lbw shout goes up but Scotland scamper through for a single leg bye
quick sinlge to point
laid off down to third man and they'll take two
too high and that's poor from PC
Are the Irish on to something here?
GONE! Just after three balls for a duck. He comes out his crease and tries to play a high hard shot and misses and the keeper whips the bails off
played down towards long off
The real Fraser Watts takes to the crease with his shirt wearing imposter currently on 108
mini breakthrough for the Irish he tries to play with a straight bat and a slight nick carries through to Wilson keeping standing up
