Netherlands beat Scotland by 8 wickets in their World Cup Group A match at Warner Park in St Kitts on Thursday.
Ryan Watson (16) and John Blain (18 not out) were other notable scorers.
The Netherlands bowled accurately after their stand-in captain Jeroen Smits won the toss and elected to field.
The Netherlands regular captain Luuk van Troost dropped himself because of lack of form after his team's plus-200-run defeats in the first two matches.
