Scotland Stun Bangladesh By 6 runs In T20 World Cup First Round

Scotland stunned Bangladesh by six runs in their Group B opener of the T20 World Cup first round in Al Amerat on Sunday Scotland stunned fancied Bangladesh by six runs after Chris Greaves’ magnificent all-around display for a dream start in the ICC T20 World Cup on an eventful Sunday night in Al Amerat.
Greaves led a brilliant lower-order fightback with a 28-ball 45 as Scotland recovered from a hopeless situation to post 140 for nine in their first-round Group B opener of the T20 showpiece.

For Scotland, medium-pacer Brad Wheal (3/24 in four overs) and leg-spinner Greaves were the star performers with the ball, while Josh Davey (1/24) and Mark Watt (1/19) provided ample support.

This is Scotland’s second win in a World Cup, the first coming in the 2016 edition of the tournament against Hong Kong. Needing 24 runs off the final over bowled by medium-pacer Safyaan Sharif (0/26), Mahedi Hasan (13 not out), and Mohammed Saifuddin (5 not out) could not pull off a miracle.
