Davey was in fine form as Scotland beat Warwickshire

Scotland won their second CB40 win in two days as Josh Davey's all-round performance helped beat Warwickshire by four runs in a rain-affected match.

In a contest that was reduced to 22 overs, Davey made 24 runs and took three wickets.

George Worker scored quickly with 27 from 20 balls, while Preston Mommsen added a vital 24 not out.

Warwickshire struggled until Ant Botha's 45 runs from 24 balls before he suffered a final-ball run out.

Botha's scintillating innings included three sixes as he dragged the visitors back into contention at The Grange.

He scored 14 runs off the first five balls of the final over but with five needed for a sensational victory the South African was run out by Safyaan Sharif from the last delivery.

Scotland's innings got off to a poor start as Kyle Coetzer - who scored a century in Sunday's win against Northamptonshire - fell to the third ball of the match from Neil Carter, with fellow opener Calum MacLeod caught lbw off the bowling of Chris Woakes three overs later.

New Zealander Worker put Scotland in a more commanding position and he was ably assisted by Davey who scored his 24 runs at a more leisurely pace.

Worker was caught behind in the ninth over before Fraser Watts and Davey were both trapped lbw. Mommsen then added valuable runs as Scotland made 120 for seven.
