Scotland success pleases Mommsen

The visitors were impressive in the penultimate game of their tour of Australia and New Zealand which is serving as a warm-up for the next year's Cricket World Cup.

Scotland captain Preston Mommsen won the toss in Lincoln and decided to bat with his side racking up 277 for eight in their innings.

The pick of the Scots' batsmen were Kyle Coetzer, who helped himself to 66 runs - he has now made three half-centuries in four games on the tour- and Mommsen, who recorded 65.

Wellington could only respond with 186 before they were all out after 46.2 overs with Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif and Majid Haq all taking two wickets.

Mommsen told www.cricketscotland.com: "It was a good win today, on the back of a few good performances from us recently.

"We haven't quite been able to get over the line in the last couple of matches, so to get the win today was pretty important for us.

"Personally it's always nice to contribute, and all round it was a good team performance, particularly the way we finished the batting innings.

"The bowlers did a brilliant job taking wickets early on which made it very difficult for them to stay in the chase.

"The fielding was also impressive - probably the best of the tour so far- and I'm very happy with the way it went."
