Scottish players struck 165 for nine wickets and restricted Papua New Guinea team to 148 by grabbing all wickets in last over. 

Richie Berrington struck an entertaining half-century before the Scotland bowlers, led by Josh Davey, had Papua New Guinea in early disarray to seal a 17-run win at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground.

An entertaining knock down the order by Norman Vanua gave PNG fans some late hope. He and Kiplin Doriga added 53 off just 29 balls, but having been 35/5 at one point in chase of a target of 166, PNG had left themselves too much to do.

With this loss, their second in the tournament, PNG will find it difficult to make it past the first round.  

Earlier, Berrington's 70 off 49 balls had been the core of Scotland's 165/9. He added a crucial 92 runs with Matt Cross for the third wicket, amid a flurry of wickets at the start and the death.
