Grant Elliott's run-fest continued while cousins Michael and Doug Bracewell also starred as New Zealand A thumped Scotland by 97 runs in their one-day match in Edinburgh on Thursday.

Elliott produced a second consecutive century on this tour, scoring an unbeaten 103 as New Zealand amassed 369-6 off their 50 overs.

Michael Bracewell also hit a century, scoring 103, while opener Hamish Rutherford managed 98 as the runs flowed at Grange ground.

Scotland's chase never got going after pace bowler Doug Bracewell removed both openers for ducks. He collected another two wickets to finish with 4-50.

Scotland were eventually dismissed for 272 with 2.1 overs remaining.

Elliott was in startling form, smashing his runs off just 51 balls, hitting 13 fours and two sixes.

There were a couple of big partnerships during the rollicking New Zealand innings.

After opening Tom Latham was out for 36, Rutherford and Bracewell added 106 for the second wicket with Rutherford scoring at virtually a run a ball.

Bracewell and Elliott then added 125 runs for the third wicket.

This win followed New Zealand's 199-run victory in the opening match of the series. The teams play again tomorrow.
