Scotland back on top in GS Holding T20I Tri-Series

SCORECARD

Scotland have jumped to the top of the GS Holding T20I Tri-Series table with one game to go thanks to a six-wicket win over Netherlands at Malahide.

Losing the toss and fielding first, five bowlers chipped in with wickets to produce an all-round team performance in the field to restrict Netherlands to 123 all out after 20 overs on a fresh Malahide pitch.

Despite a good start from Netherlands with Visee smashing a quick-fire 27 off 20 at the top of the order, a collapse of 5/26 from the Dutch allowed Scotland to get on top with Hamza Tahir taking career-best T20I figures of 4/30 and Tom Sole taking 2/15 on T20I debut.

The collapse ensured Scotland would have every chance to chase a low total on a good pitch and put themselves back on top in the GS Holding T20I Tri-Series with a game to spare as the Dutch were skittled for 123 in 20 overs.

In reply, Scotland reached the total four wickets down with 40 balls remaining as Richie Berrington (27* off 19) and Oli Hairs (25 off 14) combined for a 53-run stand to steer the team to their second victory of the series.
