Scotland bounce back to defeat Tasmania
Scotland showed three changes to their team that lost to Tasmania earlier in the week with Kyle Coetzer, Josh Davey and Rob Taylor replacing, Gordon Goudie, Majid Haq and Safyaan Sharif.
Jordan Silk won the toss for Tasmania and elected to field at the Anzac Park Hobart.
Scotland were soon in trouble when openers Kyle Coetzer and Calum MacLeod were dismissed with only twenty runs on the board.
It was left to Gardiner batting at three and his captain Preston Mommsen to steady the innings which they did with a patient 39 run partnership before Mommsen gave a return catch to Hamish Kingston to depart for 25.
Gardiner continued to hold the innings together before he became the fourth wicket to fall after he was run out in the thirtieth over. He had contributed 48 of the 110 runs.
Ten runs later Berrington was dismissed for 30 which brought Matthew Cross to the crease.
He took the attack to Tasmania punishing any loose delivery finishing unbeaten on 64 at the end of the innings. His knock came from fifty deliveries and included seven fours and three sixes.
He received good support for Taylor who made 26 for 21 balls allowing Scotland to close on 244 for 8.
Fekete, Lees and Kingston each picked up two wickets for the hosts.
On the resumption Taylor struck in the second over getting Webster caught by MacLeod off his fist delivery with only four runs on the board.
Seventeen runs later he struck again when he dismissed Ed Cowan the centurion in the previous match for eight.
Doolan and Hill added a further 43 runs to the total before Evans the fifth bowler used by Scotland had Doolan smartly caught by MacLeod for 26.
This brought Jordan Silk to the crease and it looked as though he would see his side to victory as Hill (26), Willis (38) and Rose (20) all helped him to take the score to 216.
However the return of Josh Davey into the attack saw him dismissed for 79 with the score on 216 for 7 in the forty seventh over.
The Scottish bowlers and Michael Leask in particular held their nerve, as he picked up the last three vital wickets to see his side home by ten runs.
He finished with 3 for 50 and was well supported by Evans who returned figures of 3 for 35 from his ten over spell.
Scotland now move on to Queensland where they will take on a Queensland XI at Maroochydore next Thursday.
