Scotland inflicted a crushing 10-wicket defeat on Oman when they bowled them out for just 24 in the opening match of their three-game unofficial ODI series on Monday.
Having bowled their hosts out for the fourth-lowest list A total ever inside 18 overs, the Scots chased their target down before the end of the fourth over of their innings.
Oman's No.3 Khawar Ali top-scored for his side with a sterling 15 off 33 balls, hitting their sole boundary in the process (a four).
The 33-year-old was out lbw to Ruaidhri Smith, who finished the innings with a handy 4-7 off eight overs (two of those runs were wides).

Adrian Neil, the man Ali scored the sole boundary off and who plays for Gloucestershire's Second XI, also finished with figures of 4-7 on what was his senior list A debut.
The back of the run-chase was broken in the first over when opener Matthew Cross struck a four off the fourth ball, before captain Kyle Coetzer followed suit two balls later to leave Scotland just under halfway there no wickets down.
There was no Melbourne Stars-style collapse and inside the fourth over Coetzer scored his third four to seal the victory for the tourists.
