Scotland end T20 tour with a win

Scotland closed out their tour of Dubai with a 37-run victory over the Netherlands.

Leg-spinner Mark Watt claimed a maiden T20 five-wicket haul as the netherlands failed to register a meaningful partnership as they were skittled out for 103.

A 64-run partnership from Matt Machan and Richie Berrington helped Scotland reach 140 for five after opener Kyle Coetzer   got them off to a steady start with 30.

Despite a hard-fought 55-run partnership between Ben Cooper and Michael Swart, the Netherlands lost nine wickets for 48 as Watt stole the show with two consecutive double-wicket overs to seal the win.

Scotland will begin their World Twenty20 campaign against Afghanistan in Nagpur on March 8.
