24 Jun 2023 - 10:50

Scotland are on course to reach the Super Six stage of the 2023 World Cup Qualifiers after defeating the UAE.

Afghan Voice Agency(AVA)_monitoring, Scotland backed up their thrilling one-wicket win over Ireland by beating the UAE by 111 runs, with a captain’s knock from Richie Berrington, AFP reported.

His 127 with nine fours and three sixes fired them to 282 for eight before Chris Sole and Safyaan Sharif finished the job with the ball.

Michael Leask with 41 also shone with the bat.
“It was really important today after the win against Ireland to turn up and adapt to the conditions. Pleasing that we put in such a clinical performance with the ball and make it pretty comfortable,” said Berrington.

Plenty of UAE batters got in, including skipper Muhammad Waseem (36), but none were able to turn starts into big scores as wickets fell at regular intervals.
With two wins apiece, the West Indies and Zimbabwe meet in Harare on Saturday and are both well-placed to make the Super Sixes from Group A.

The other match between the Netherlands and Nepal could end up being decisive in the race for third place.
For Nepal, only a win will do but if they can get the better of the Dutch, they will be on the brink of qualifying.

Netherlands will clinch a top three spot in the group with a win, ahead of a final match against the West Indies.
