Scotland secured a nine-wicket victory over Nepal in their second ICC World Cricket League Championship meeting in Ayr.

Rain halted play on Friday with the visitors all out for 167 and the Scots needing 95 from 20.2 overs.

And, after play resumed on Saturday, the hosts reached the tally of 111-1 with 49 balls remaining.

Matt Cross hit a half-century in Scotland's second successive win over the Nepalese.

Earlier this week, Grant Bradburn's side opened the tournament with a three-run victory.

On Friday, Alasdair Evans picked up three wickets as Nepal struggled to build any partnerships; Sharad Vesawkar top-scoring on 30.

George Munsey hit two fours from the six balls he faced to get to 10 not out, and Kyle Coetzer resumed play on Saturday on four not out.

Though Coetzer only added three more runs before being bowled out by Sompal Kami, Munsey and Cross were, respectively, 40 and 51 not out.

Munsey and Cross each got two sixes in Scotland's innings.
