Oman made a spirited start to their fightback, with Jatinder Singh and Aqib Ilyas forming a strong partnership.

Ilyas was bowled for 33 by Hamza Tahir while Chris Sole took Singh's wicket for 64 as the Scots looked to have slowed their hosts' momentum. A late rally brought Oman within sight of their target but they finished 255 for nine.

The Scots are back in action tomorrow when they face Papua New Guinea - whom they beat last weekend - before meeting Oman again this Saturday. The series counts towards qualification for the 2023 World Cup in India.
