Watsonians George Munsey – who ended the tournament as top runs scorer with 204 – smashed 71 from just 34 balls with great back up from Richie Berrington (64 not out) and Matt Cross (50).

The score of 221-3 set the Netherlands a tough target and they could only crawl to 106 all out.

Scotland spinner Hamza Tahir led the way with 3-26 as The Saltires won the match by 115 runs.
