Coleman gets Scotland back on track
Scotland proved to be too strong for Nepal at the Merrion Cricket Club.
Scotland batted first after a rain delay and was bowled out for 214 in 49 overs. Freddie Colemanís 81 off 102 balls with six boundaries negated Nepal bowler Bhuwan Karkiís 5 for 41.
Aman Bailwal also chipped in with 39, sharing in a vital partenrship with Coleman.
Two wickets inside the first three balls from Scottish captain Paddy Sadler dealt Nepal a fatal blow from which they never fully recovered.
Nepal captain Prithu Baskota (67: 117b, 5x4, 2x6) played a lone hand in the chase as wickets fell at regular intervals.
Man of the Match Coleman was happy to have played a part in the win: ''Conditions were pretty tough. We needed to handle a lot of spinners, because it skidded off a lot. We looked to hit to down the ground and hit as straight as we could.
"I looked to bat through the innings and play low risk cricket. I thought 200 would be a par score. The chase was tough because it taking a lot more spin towards the end. This makes up for yesterday's loss to Canada.''
