New Zealand scored 254-5 – their record T20 total – to beat Scotland by 102 runs in their second Twenty20 international in Edinburgh.
Friday’s victory means New Zealand won the two-match series 2-0.
Michael Bracewell, batting at No.5, played a key role in the record total by smashing 61 not out off 25 balls, including eight fours and three sixes, after the visitors chose to bat first.
Mark Chapman scored a 44-ball 83 with seven sixes. Scottish pace bowler Gavin Main took 2-44 in four overs.
Dane Cleaver (28), Finn Allen (6) and Daryl Mitchell (31) and Jimmy Neesham (28) were the other men dismissed.
Reduced to 37-4 at one point, Scotland held out to complete their 20 overs to finish on 152-9 in reply.
Chris Greaves top-scored for the hosts with 37 runs off 29 deliveries. He was caught-and-bowled by Ish Sodhi (1-29). Kiwi quick Neesham took 2-9 in one over, and spinner Michael Rippon 2-37 in four overs.
New Zealand’s previous best score in cricket’s shortest format was 243-5 against West Indies in 2018.
The sides will play a one day international at the same ground on Sunday.
