Corey Anderson and Daniel Vettori claimed three wickets each for New Zealand whereas Trent Boult and Tim Southee claimed two wickets apiece.

New Zealand came on to bat in an aggressive mode eyeing a quick finisher at homeground. But, Scotland bowlers ot in the way and made the run chase weigh heavy on them.

New Zealand have now secured four points in the Pool A match winning this match and the World Cup opener against Sri Lanka.
