Taylor makes unbeaten 48 for Scotland

Rob Taylor had a promising start to his ICC Continental Cup career despite a difficult opening for Scotland against Afghanistan.

Scotland are second in the table but were 41-6 when Taylor made his way to the wicket. Taylor top-scored with a fine unbeaten 48 to guide Scotland to 125 all out in Abu Dhabi.

Taylor hit three fours in the 32nd over and collected eight boundaries overall in his 54-ball stay. The Leicestershire all-rounder shared 57 for the last wicket with Safyaan Sharif while Izatullah Dawlatzai claimed 6-57 for Afghanistan.

Taylor then had an impact with the ball as he picked up 1-39 from ten overs, including the wicket of top-scorer Asghar Stanikzai. The all-rounder also took two catches.

It has been a far more straightforward start for Niall O’Brien’s Ireland against United Arab Emirates in Sharjah.

Ireland were 187-2 when O’Brien made his way to the wicket and moved to 272-2 by stumps. O’Brien is unbeaten on 24 alongside Ed Joyce, who is one shy of a century.

Openers Will Porterfield (81) and Paul Stirling (61) also made half-centuries for Ireland, who are looking to cement their place at the top of the league in this four-day fixture.
