Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Kyle Coetzer, 2.2 ov), 2-26 (George Munsey, 3.4 ov), 3-118 (Matthew Cross, 14.3 ov), 4-151 (Calum MacLeod, 18.2 ov), 5-153 (Richie Berrington, 18.4 ov), 6-158 (Chris Greaves, 19.2 ov), 7-165 (Michael Leask, 19.4 ov), 8-165 (Josh Davey, 19.5 ov), 9-165 (Mark Watt, 19.6 ov)
2.2 to KJ Coetzer, clever slower ball castles Coetzer! Morea isn't express by any means but even his subtle change of pace with a touch of inswing has fooled the Scotland captain and beats him with.a huge gap out in front of a drive between bat and pad.. 22/1
19.2 to CN Greaves, got the broom out to sweep it through the onside, but skies it, does Greaves. Siaka in the field had a little wobble, but managed to catch it on the second attempt. 158/6
19.5 to JH Davey, looked like he's connected cleanly enough. It was a half-volley Davey tried to thump over long-on, but only succeeds in finding the fielder. A manic final over, this. 165/8
19.6 to MRJ Watt, make it six in 11! Watt tried to reverse sweep it, and finds his off stump uprooted! . Four wickets in that final over, shades of that Amir over against Australia at the 2010 World Cup, which saw five wickets fall.. 165/9
3.4 to HG Munsey, full on fifth stump, skies a leg side heave and gets a big top edge to deep square leg. Hangs in the air forever but falls safely into the hands of the fielder settling in 15 yards inside the rope. Too easy for Lega Siaka.. 26/2
18.2 to CS MacLeod, the extra bounce off the wicket dooms him. Bounced up high after he banged it into the wicket, and MacLeod couldn't get hon top of his heave to the onside. Instead it balloons up into the air, and midwicket completes a smart catch to send him on his way. 151/4
18.4 to RD Berrington, he's got rid of Berrington, too! He caught that very cleanly on the bat, did the Scot, but when it flew to Amini at long-on, so did the PNG player! Much too flat to clear the rope, and Scotland are falteringly slightly as the innings draws to a close. 153/5
14.3 to MH Cross, another bad ball, and failing to put these away has cost Scotland in the end. Cross smeared it straight to cow corner once more, but this time right down his throat. Atai picks up a wicket PNG scarcely deserved, and Cross is apoplectic as he departs. 118/3

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Tony Ura, 1.3 ov), 2-20 (Lega Siaka, 3.3 ov), 3-30 (Assad Vala, 4.5 ov), 4-33 (Charles Amini, 5.3 ov), 5-35 (Simon Atai, 5.6 ov), 6-67 (Sese Bau, 11.3 ov), 7-120 (Kiplin Doriga, 16.2 ov), 8-128 (Norman Vanua, 17.6 ov), 9-135 (Nosaina Pokana, 18.4 ov), 10-148 (Chad Soper, 19.3 ov)
3.3 to L Siaka, charges again but pays the price for it this time. Wheal bowls this slightly back of a length on fourth stump, Siaka can't get to the pitch as intended and tries to smash this on the up. Instead it's a healthy edge carrying through to Cross.. 20/2
1.3 to TP Ura, chops on! Length ball on fourth stump, tries to cut this but is cramped for room, too tight and not enough width for the shot and winds up paying the price for it.. 5/1
5.6 to SK Atai, Stunner from Berrington! It's his day! Full and wide, there to lash but Atai picks out Berrington at backward point. Didn't try to keep it along the ground at all but Berrington sticks up his left paw, his weaker hand, to claw it out of the air high over his head. Berrington? More like Bearington with that big girizzly claw!. 35/5
17.6 to N Vanua, and that's the end for Vanua, and probably curtains for PNG. A nothing ball, slow and tailing down leg. Sat up for Vanua to smash for four and bring up his half-century. It hits Vanua on the glove, though, and Cross has the easiest of catches. Vanua smashes the ground with his bat in frustration. 128/8
19.3 to CA Soper, slower bouncer, but has he nicked this through to the keeper? Dharmasena doesn't think so, but Scotland have reviewed. Yep, there's a feather on that, and that, finally, seals the game, and PNG's fate. Scotland win by 17 runs, and go top in this group. PNG's hopes of qualifying for the second round are almost over.. 148/10
4.5 to A Vala, Vala gets greedy after collecting two boundaries in the over already off Evans. Length ball on middle and off, tries to swat this on the up over midwicket but it gets a touch of extra bounce with a slower offcutter to produce a top edge that swirls gently to mid-off on the ring.. 30/3
16.2 to K Doriga, clever bowling, and Doriga's done for! That was smart because Doriga showed his hand early. Was down the ground before Watt was through his delivery stride, so he sent it down the offside, leaving Cross to effect a nimble stumping. 120/7
11.3 to S Bau, holes out to long-on. Excellent catch by brad Wheal, who can do no wrong at the moment. Looked to swipe it over midwicket, but only got a top edge, and PNG slide closer to a huge defeat. 67/6
