Scotland Shocks the World and Qualifies for the Super 12

The Scottish have had a bad history when it comes to qualifying. But, this time their balanced squad has pierced through their competition to reach the Super 12, beating Bangladesh, Oman and PNG. They will now be grouped with the likes of India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan and one more team from Group A. 

For Scotland, Davey, Sharif, and Leask shined the brightest in the first innings, taking out the likes of Jatinder Singh, Ilyas, and more. 

After the major wickets it became seemingly easy for the Scottish. Limiting Oman to only 122, the match was heading towards the amazing Scotland side. Munsey and Coetser opened the batting for Scotland. They set up the batting pretty well with Coetser scoring 41 and playing the captain’s innings, and Munsey scoring 20 runs. These two were the only wickets Oman could take, as Cross and Berrington got Scotland through with 26 and 31 runs respectively.

Berrington finished things off in style as he drilled a six through deep midwicket to change the luck of the Scottish. It remains to be seen how Scotland can perform against the likes of giants like New Zealand and India.
