Richie Berrington did the damage, punishing the Hebou PNG Barramundis’ bowlers for his 129 runs, which included fifteen boundaries.
Berrington was eventually dismissed by Barras’ captain Assad Vala.
The tail-enders then went to work. Safyaan Sharif, the star with the ball for Scotland, made a valuable 25 runs while Mark Watt (61*) and Chris Sole (14*) were able to take Scotland to 9/482 at stumps to put Scotland ahead in the match.
Mahuru Dai was the best of the Barras’ bowlers, taking 3/91 off 37 overs. Chad Soper was the only other multiple wicket-taker, taking 2/54 off his 26 overs.
The final day of the ICC Intercontinental Cup match is currently underway.
