Chasing Scotland's 139 for seven, Mohammad Nabi's men reached their target with 15 balls to spare, Mohammad Shahzad leading the charge with a 25-ball 46.

Opener Karim Sadiq also chipped in with a tidy 34, with only Iain Wardlaw (two for 32) making an impact with the ball for Scotland.

Their innings contained three starts but no big score, with Calum MacLeod (31), Matt Machan (39) and Moneeb Iqbal (31) all coming and going with little support.

Beyond that trio, Scotland's highest scorer was the extras column, with 17, as Hamid Hasan ended the day with an impressive four for 22.

The sides will now play two one-day games before a four-day fixture which starts next Tuesday.
