Leask knock secures Scots win over PNG

Scotland 228 for 6 (Coetzer 81, Leask 51, Morea 2-40) beat Papua New Guinea 226 for 8 (Vanua 57, Leask 3-19, Evans 3-33) by four wickets

Muscat: Scotland secured a third win in a row at the Cricket World Cup League 2 series in Oman as they defeated Papua New Guinea by four wickets.

The Scots chased down the winning runs with seven balls to spare to record a second win over their opponents within four days.

Michael Leask's 51 not out proved crucial as his side pursued a challenging target of 227.

Burger thought his side were "a little bit off the mark" in certain areas but thought their "character, fight and heart" pulled them through.

Having won the toss and elected to bat, Papua New Guinea were at 97-6 midway through their innings, with Leask taking three wickets for the concession of only 19 runs, before their lower order kept the scoreboard ticking over.

Scotland captain Coetzer led the way in the reply, scoring 81, but it was Leask whose innings proved crucial, seeing Scotland home with an over to spare with a six off the final ball of his innings.
