That is that from the opener. Do tune in for the Netherlands-Afghanistan game, which will get underway in about 90 minutes. Until then, ciao, ciao.

Preston Mommsen, Scotland captain: It is always nice to start the tournament with the win. They actually came hard in the Powerplay but we hung in. 150-160 would have been a difficult chase. I don't think there is any pressure playing at home. To get a first win under our belt is huge. We have a dynamic batting line-up and this sets the tone for us.

Mohammad Tauqir, UAE captain: We had practiced in Southampton , the conditions were different here. It is a long tournament and we need to be a bit more responsible, especially in the batting department. We had a decent World Cup. We just had a bad day and move on in the tournament. This was a 150+ wicket and we should have batted responsibly.

George Munsey, Man of the Match: It is a special place to play cricket. We have been working very hard. We tried to get ourselves in and played our shots. I enjoy batting with Coetzer and it works well.

12:20pm: Fairly subdued celebrations from Scotland. The co-hosts made light work of the chase, wolfing the target down with as many as ten overs to spare. Coetzer and Munsey switched into top gear right away with a flurry of boundaries. Coetzer fell for 39 but Munsey, aided by MacLeod, stayed unbeaten on 62 to finish the chase.
