Scotland253/5(47.2 overs)

And that's it folks! This ODI series between Canada and Scotland has been drawn 1-1 after Scotland defeat Canada by 5 wickets.

Scotland were solid with the bat and chased down the Canadian total of 250 with solid half-centuries from Hamilton and Watson with McCallum finishing the job on 79*. After the cruel run-out for Watts at the start the Scots batted sensibly throughout and

were always on top of the run-rate. The Canadians are now flying to Holland tomorrow for two ODI's and a 4-day match while the Scots wait until August to host Ireland.

Thanks very much for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed our coverage. For now from Aberdeen it's goodbye from cricinfo and me Callum Stewart.
