Oman skittled out for 24 as Scotland impose thumping ten-wicket win

Scotland bowled out Oman for just 24 on their way to a 10-wicket thrashing of the hosts in their opening one-day match on Tuesday.

Five Oman batsmen were dismissed without scoring as they were skittled out in just 17.1 overs, with Khawar Ali striking the only boundary of the innings in his 33-ball 15.

Scottish seamers Ruaidhri Smith and Adrian Neill both finished with figures of 4-7.

Oman's highest partnership was just eight runs as they posted the fourth-lowest score in List A history, six runs better than the 18 made by West Indies Under-19s against Barbados in 2007.

In reply, Scotland completed their run chase in just 20 balls as openers Matt Cross and Kyle Coetzer struck four boundaries between them.

"We want to be dominant. We want to be ruthless. And that's exactly what happened on the pitch. We got on top of them and wouldn't let them go," Scotland's acting head coach Toby Bailey told cricketscotland.com.

The sides will play two more games in the three-match series on Wednesday and Friday.
