Scotland the brave snatch tournament title




 Scotland won the Oman Quadrangular Series by beating the hosts by seven wickets in Al Amerat yesterday.

Mark Watt and Adrian Neill took three wickets each as Oman were bowled out for 111 inside the final over of their innings.

Scotland comfortably reached their target of 112, with Richie Berrington hitting the winning boundary. The speed of the victory allowed Scotland to claim the tournament title after overtaking the Netherlands and Ireland on net run rate with all three teams level on two wins.

After being sent in to bat, Oman experimented with their batting order by promoting Naseem Khushi to open in an effort to spark them following a sluggish start in their previous defeat to the Netherlands. But the move backfired as Khushi failed to get the ball away off the first five deliveries from Evans before a charge down the pitch resulted in Evans dragging the length back and a pull being sent to Michael Leask at deep square leg.
