SCOTLAND went down fighting in the opening encounter of their double-header against Hampshire yesterday.
The Saltires may still be seeking their second win of this CB40 campaign but a six-wicket defeat was still an improvement on last week's limp showing against Durham.

Drummond then trapped James Vince in front to reduce the county to 15-2.
