Debutant Charlie Tear helped Scotland secure an 8 wicket win over hosts UAE today in Dubai as the Scots got off the mark in League 2.

Scotland captain Richie Berrington won the toss and asked the home side to bat first, with them finding runs difficult to come by. Aayan Afzal Khan's unbeaten 45 was their only score of note as they were bowled out for 132, Bradley Currie taking 3-21.

Scotland opened with George Munsey and debutant Charlie Tear, who played for England Under-19s last year after representing Scotland at the 2022 Men's Under-19 World Cup. He remains eligible for Scotland as bilateral U19 matches do not count as far as ICC eligibility rules are concerned.

The pair put on 42 - Munsey co0ntributing 37 of them - before Munsey was out in the sixth over. Tear and Brandon McMullen then added another 85 before McMullen was out for 39 in the 23rd over.

With Scotland two runs short of the target in the next over and Tear on 46, he finished the match of in style with a six to secure an eight wicket win and a half-century on ODI debut.

Scotland play next in this tri-series on Thursday when they take on Canada. UAE next play on Tuesday, also against Canada.
