Chad Soper

Scotland trailing Barras after day two

Starting the day at 7/285, Chad Soper (60) and Norman Vanua (64) frustrated the Scotland bowling attacking, putting on 93 runs for the eighth wicket, before Soper was caught behind off the bowling of Chris Sole.

In his first match for the Barras, Damien Ravu continued on where Soper left off, making a valuable 32 runs.

Ravu and Nosiana Pokana took the total beyond 400, before Ravu was bowled to bring the Barras’ innings to an end at for 404 at lunch.

Barras go down against Hong Kong

Hong Kong batted first and set a mammoth target of 269 for the Barras to chase for victory.

Barras started well knocking off Hong Kong openers cheaply off consecutive balls after deciding to bat, but a 78-run third-wicket stand from skipper  Babar Hayat and Nizakat Khan got them back on track to end the overs at  6 for 269.

Chad Soper was the Barras’ best bowler, finishing with 3/39.
