Calum MacLeod hit 145 as Scotland levelled their one-day series with the Netherlands thanks to a rain-hit victory in Glasgow.

The Durham batsman helped Scotland to 317 all out before Michael Leask had a hand in six wickets to keep the home side well in control.

Rain stopped play at Titwood in the early evening with the visitors halfway through their innings but they had only managed 115-7 and Scotland won by 144 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method.

MacLeod hit 37 on Tuesday as Scotland suffered a 44-run defeat in new head coach Grant Bradburn's debut, but he was on top form with 18 boundaries from 124 balls to give the New Zealander his first win.

Preston Mommsen hit 45 and opener MacLeod lasted until the 49th over before being bowled by Ahsan Malik with the hosts' innings ending with three balls remaining.

Stephan Myburgh started the Dutch innings in determined fashion - he hit two sixes and a four in the fourth over - but his day was over on 27 runs thanks to a spectacular introduction to international cricket from debutant Gavin Main.

The 19-year-old bowler's first ball produced a wicket as Myburgh edged to the hands of Marc Petrie.

Leask then set to work on the Dutch. Petrie stumped out opener Michal Swart to end his day on 27 following the delivery of Leask, who then claimed three more wickets, a catch, and also ran out Wesley Barresi.
