Scotland dominates West Indies in T20 World Cup

Scotland produced their second upset at the T20 World Cup, beating two-time champions West Indies by 42 runs behind spinners and a solid outfield catch.

The Scots saw fine-tuned Mark Watt (3-12 from 4 overs) and Michael Rieske (2-15 from 4 overs) come forward after scoring 5-160 after losing the toss in Hobart on Monday. I was.

The West Indies, who won the tournament in 2012 and 2016, were unable to forge a partnership and the loss cost them a chance to advance to the next stage.

They were 118 out in 18.3 overs, with only four players reaching double figures.

Experienced all-rounder Jason Holder led the field on 38 of 33 pitches, but was no help.

Scotland grabbed some tricky outfield catches, but Watt picked up three scalps by bowling from the crease.

The West Indies lost 7-26 from 6 to 13 overs.

Their night came to an end when Aqeel Hossain ran out one over in 13 overs, despite Leask needing a second try to upset the stumps.

Earlier, Scottish opener George Munsey pinned the innings with 66 out from 53 balls.

Scotland got off to a flying start and were 0-54 after a power play thanks to Munsey scoring 6 of 9 boundaries in the first 6 overs.

He thrashed speedster Arzali Joseph with three consecutive fours in four overs, but struggled to regain his groove after a 45-minute rain delay in six overs.

Holder installed the screw at 2-14 after the rain, but surprisingly bowled only 3 overs of his maximum 4 overs.

Group B’s West Indies, Scotland, Ireland and Zimbabwe are battling to qualify for the Super 12 stage of the tournament.

The two sides will face each other once, with the top two teams advancing to the next stage.
