Scotland: Josh Davey's astounding return of five wickets for nine runs helped Scotland level their two-match one-day series against Afghanistan with a six-wicket victory here on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old had just one wicket from three matches when he came on to bowl first change following Afghanistan's decision to bat first. But the seamer was soon into his stride and Afghanistan were indebted to Samiullah Shenwari's 46 for getting them to 120.

Former England all-rounder Gavin Hamilton and Ryan Flannigan fell early in Scotland's reply but opener Fraser Watts made 55 not out and Richie Berrington hit 33 as the hosts won with more than 16 overs remaining.
