MUSCAT, OMAN: In the second match of the first round of the T20 World Cup, Scotland has given Bangladesh a target of 141 runs to win.

At the beginning of the match, the captain of the Bangladesh cricket team, Mahmudullah, won the toss and opted to bowl first. 

At the end of the 20 overs, Scotland scored 140 for 9. 

Half of Scotland’s team returned to the pavilion for 52 runs, after which Chris Graves and Mark Watt batted responsibly to take the team’s score to 140 runs.

Chris Graves scored 45 runs, George Munsey scored 29 runs, while Mark Watt scored 22 runs.

For Bangladesh, Mehdi Hassan took 3 wickets, while Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rehman took 2 wickets each.

Prior to the match, Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah had said: “This is a good wicket and more runs can be scored here, but we want to chase the target because of the dew at night.”

On the other hand, Scottish captain Kyle Kotzer said: “We are happy to bat first. If you give a good target, you can put more pressure in the second innings. There is dew but we have to deal with it.”

It should be recalled that earlier in the day, in the opening match of the T20 World Cup, host Oman had defeated Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets.
