Gautam Gambhir struck 85 not out as India beat Scotland by seven wickets in the one-off ODI at Glasgow.

Gambhir's innings allowed India to chase down a Duckworth-Lewis revised target of 209 in a match reduced to 46 overs by rain.

Robin Uthappa contributed 55 to an opening stand of 104 with Gambhir, setting the tone for a comfortable run chase that was eventually completed with 6.1 overs to spare.

Earlier, a fourth-wicket stand of 82 between Gavin Hamilton (44) and Neil McCallum (41) either side of a rain delay allowed Scotland to total 203-9 after being asked to bat.

India's seam attack of Rudra Pratap Singh (2-26), Agit Agarkar (2-54) and Munaf Patel (2-36) put Scotland in early trouble at 49-4, before Hamilton and McCallam dodged the showers to lead a recovery.

The final total of 203-9 was aided by some big-hitting from Craig Wright (37) at the end of the innings, with the Duckworth-Lewis calculation adding five runs to leave India chasing 209.

India play the England Lions at Northampton on Saturday, their final warm-up before a seven-match ODI series against England.
