Hampshire ease to win over Scotland in Glasgow

James Vince

Hampshire demolished Scotland by nine wickets with almost 25 overs to spare in a one-sided Yorkshire Bank 40 Group B game in Glasgow.

Scotland were put in and crumbled to 136 all out, Gordon Goudie's late run-a-ball 26 being much needed.

James Vince then cracked an unbeaten 75 from 52 as Hampshire reached their target from the first ball of the 16th over.

Michael Carberry, who made 45 from 27, was their only casualty.

Scotland struggled from the outset, losing Freddie Coleman in the second over when he was trapped lbw by Dimitri Mascarenhas.

Richie Berrington fell for a duck and Calum MacLeod made only three as the hosts slipped to 23 for three before Hamish Gardiner and captain Preston Mommsen put on 37 for the fourth wicket, albeit in almost 14 overs.

Gardiner's top score of 29 occupied 61 balls before he was dismissed by Danny Briggs, who removed Moneeb Iqbal in his next over for figures of two for 35.

Mommsen was run out for 21, off 50 deliveries, and it was left to Goudie and wicket-keeper Matthew Cross (22) to try to salvage the innings.

Mascarenhas, Chris Wood and Sohail Tanvir all took two wickets apiece.

Both Vince and Carberry found the boundary as 14 runs came from the first over of Hampshire's reply and their opening stand reached 50 inside seven overs.

Goudie's third over yielded three boundaries and Vice's half-century, but Carberry was stumped five short of the same landmark after a stand of 98.

However, Vince found the ropes twice more off Majid Haq in the next over and won the match with his 12th four as he and Jimmy Adams (13 not out) wrapped up victory.
