Toss: New Zealand call correctly and decided to bowl vs Scotland, who have never won an ODI against the World Cup co-hosts

The Scots will be playing their first World Cup fixture for eight years, having failed to win in their previous two campaigns, in 1999 and 2007.

New Zealand cemented their status as one of the favourites for this World Cup with a dominating 98-run win over Sri Lanka in the tournament's opening match.

But October saw Scotland, a non-Test nation, go down by just one run to a New Zealand side which included eight members of the Black Caps' World Cup squad.

Earlier in the day, the Kiwis put up a disciplined show as all of their bowlers were on the money picking up wickets regularly and bundled the Scotland team for a mere 142. Berrington and Machan were the only two players who showed some resistance but got out soon after scoring their half centuries.

Wardlaw was impressive picking up three wickets. Davey and Haq too were handy, picking up three and one wicket repectively, With a low total on board it was too much to ask of the bowlers. In the end the Kiwis got home with three wickets to spare and another win in the bag.

A comprehensive but unconvincing win in the end. A low total on the board and the Kiwis were in some sort of a hurry to finish the game. As a result they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Post lunch they lost three wickets but still got home with three wickets in hand. Williamson top scored with 38 runs.
