James Vince

James Vince was one of two centurions for Hampshire as they eased to a comprehensive victory over Scotland at the Rose Bowl

Jimmy Adams and James Vince each scored centuries as Hampshire hammered Scotland by 115 runs at the Rose Bowl.

Adams and Vince came together with the score on 22 for the early loss of debutant Tim Ravenscroft and compiled a stand of 233 for the second wicket.

Scotland captain Gordon Drummond used seven bowlers in a bid to stem the flow of runs, and he was hampered by the loss of medium-pacer Josh Davey, who was injured while bowling his third over.

Vince was the first to his century, his first in limited-overs competition, and Adams followed soon afterwards.

Vince finally perished after making 131 from 110 balls, including 13 fours, and by that stage the total was already well beyond Scotland's reach.

Michael Carberry was third out with the score on 266 and Adams followed 10 runs later, caught in the deep after compiling 113 from 103 deliveries.

His innings included nine fours and a six before he became the third victim for Gordon Goudie as Scotland attempted to salvage some pride from the battering they took at the hands of the Hampshire batsmen.

Hampshire finished with a mammoth 302 for four, and Scotland suffered an early blow in reply when they lost Ryan Flannigan in the fifth over.

New Zealander George Worker and Ollie Hairs ensured respectability with a stand of 50 for the third wicket, but Scotland's hopes were extinguished when Worker was caught at midwicket by Ravenscroft off Hamza Riazuddin four runs short of his half-century.

Chris Wood and Riazuddin chipped away at the middle order as Scotland attempted to accelerate with four wickets falling for 33 runs in a vain run-chase.

Majid Haq and Goudie held up Hampshire with a brisk ninth-wicket stand of 26, but when Wood returned to bowl Haq Scotland’s innings was over, with Davey unable to bat.

Wood finished with figures of 4-34 from eight overs and Riazuddin claimed 3-37, but the match was over as a contest long before the conclusion at the end of the 35th over.
