Scotland 249-8 (50 overs): MacLeod 133, Leask 41. Holland 3-28
United States 250-8 (49.5 overs): Jones 62, Patel 50. Tahir 2-37
USA received by two wickets

Scotland have been surprised within the ultimate over as the USA snatched a two-wicket win of their World Cup League 2 one-day worldwide at Aberdeen.

Calum MacLeod’s excellent unbeaten 133 noticed Scotland get better from 31 for 4 after Saurabh Netravalkar eliminated openers Kyle Coetzer and Craig Wallace.

Michael Leask added 41 from 50 balls as Scotland reached 249-8.

The guests have been outsiders after slipping to 228-Eight within the penultimate over, needing 22 from 9 balls.

However Jaskaran Malhotra (36 not out) hit three fours and a six as they reached their goal with one ball to spare.

Having crushed the United Arab Emirates twice and USA as soon as within the Aberdeen tri-series, Scotland’s closing defeat leaves them second within the World Cup League 2 standings, 4 factors behind Oman having performed eight fewer matches.
