In the other Super Six match played, Hong Kong defeated Namibia, while, in play-off matches, Netherlands defeated Canada to seal seventh position and Nepal defeated Uganda to claim ninth place.
Scotland skipper Preston Mommsen smashed a quick-fire 94 to lead his side to a 52-runs victory over Papua New Guinea (PNG) at Bert Sutcliffe Oval, Lincoln.
The side wasted no time after electing to bat, with opener Matthew Cross (49) laying the foundations for a big innings. Man of the match Mommsen struck 10 fours in his knock of 94, and was ably supported by Freddie Coleman (48).
Willie Gavera got the breakthrough in the 40th over, dismissing Mommsen and then Rob Taylor (0) to be on a hat trick and finish with figures of two for 54, one of four bowlers to claim two wickets as Scotland posted 288 for nine from its 50 overs.
Vani Morea (57) and Assad Vala (33) kept PNG in the run chase, but when skipper Chris Amini (7) was dismissed in the 34th over, it sparked a batting collapse, losing three wickets for 30 runs to see the PNG run chase fall away.
A rear-guard counter-attack was launched by lower middle order batsman Mahuru Dai, who clubbed 50 from 29 balls, clearing the boundary five times and striking two sixes.
Gavera was the last wicket to fall and PNG was all out for 236 in 45.1 overs.
The UAE also recorded its second win in the Super Six stage, defeating Kenya by 13 runs with three balls to spare at Hagley Oval, Christchurch.
Kenya would have been pleased with its decision to send the UAE in to bat, with medium pacer Nehemiah Odhiambo claiming both openers within the first five overs.
Skipper Khurram Khan again led the way with the bat, scoring 85 runs, and he was ably supported by Swapnil Patil (36) and lower order batsman Amjad Javed, who scored 63 from 31 balls, including five fours and three sixes.
