Scotland made it three out of three wins in this CWC League 2 tri-series as their bid to secure a place in the World Cup Qualifier continued.

Kyle Coetzer won the toss and chose for his charges to bat first. He led by example, scoring 74 before he was bowled by Chad Soper in the 35th over. That may have been the top score for Scotland, but there were more batting heroics to come.

Dylan Budge scored 46 from 38 balls, but was outdone by Michael Leask who clubbed six sixes as he scored 50 in just 18 balls. It was the equal fifth fastest 50 in ODI history, and the fastest by an associate player, breaking the record set by fellow Scot Richie Berrington's 20 ball fifty set back in 2011.

Scotland's final total was 287-5, three higher than the total they made against PNG on Saturday. It proved to be equally as challenging for the Pacific Islanders as they were bowled out for 164. Tony Ura top scored for them with 47, whilst Gavin Main took 5-52, his first five wicket haul in ODIs.

Scotland will be in action again after tomorrow's rest-day when they take on Oman on Friday, whilst Papua New Guinea will play their last match of this tri-series on Saturday, also against Oman.
