That's it from us today, good effort from Scotland with ball and bat, especially Haq who bowled a superb spell. A fantastic innings from Chris Gayle snatched victory with the support of Darren Sammy at the end.

Join us for tomorrows game in Belfast, where Scotland must pick themselves up for a game against the Netherlands. Thanks for joining us.
