Craig Ervine and his men needed a steady start to lay the foundation for this chase. But they suffered two early jolts as they lost the wickets of Regis Chakabva and Wesley Madhevere with just seven runs on the board. Scotland got the early breakthroughs they needed to defend their total and they had to thank Brad Wheal and Mark Watt for helping them get those wickets.
