Australia A got their tour of the British Isles off to a fine start when hammering Scotland by 360 runs with a day of four to spare.
Having won the toss, Australia were aided in their first innings by centuries from skipper Brad Haddin and Peter Siddle as well as Usman Khawaja’s fifty.
Haddin struck 113, Siddle 103 not out and Khawaja 51 in a total of 372 for eight, while Iain Wardlaw claimed three wickets.
Scotland did not fare well in reply as James Pattinson led the way with three wickets in a total of 149 all out.
The tourists strengthened their grip on the game with 230 for five declared, Moises Henriques hitting 59 and Ashton Agar 56.
Pattinson once again took centre stage thereafter, taking a further four wickets with Chadd Sayers grabbing three, Nathan Lyon two and Siddle one.
As a result, Scotland – facing a victory target of 454 – were dismissed for just 93 with Calum MacLeod’s 30 their top score.
Australia A’s next encounter will be against Ireland at Belfast, beginning next Thursday.
