Australia’s victory made it possible for the england team to qualify for the next round of Super 8. Scotland has a better run rate than england and their last game was pending against Australia. If they emerged victorious in it then Australia and Scotland were the qualifiers from the group.

However, England and Scotland finished the group stage with five points each. But the English team with a better run rate qualified for the Super 8 stages.

The Australian Team won all the matches of group stages and ended with a total of 8 points and made their way to the Super 8.

With the aid of fifty-threes from Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis, Australia managed to reach home in 19.4 overs while chasing a target of 181 runs.

While Stoinis produced an outstanding knock of 59 runs in 29 balls, Head scored 68 runs in 49 balls.

“The plan was to get yourself in and hit it hard along the ground. And then access from there. There was a strong breeze, which meant that the end was easier to hit. The pitch was also very good. Head picked his bowlers and pretty much turned the game in that over with three sixes even though he got out. I have been fortunate to play consistently for the last 3-4 months starting with the IPL but there’s no substitute for confidence. That’s the recipe we all try to keep a hold of,” Stoinis said after being named Player of the Match.

For Scotland, Mark Watt and Safyaan Sharif each took two wickets.

Australia had earlier chosen to field first against Scotland after winning the toss.

Batting first, Scotland amassed 180-5 in 20 overs thanks to a stunning 60 from Brandon McMullen off 34 balls. Six maximums and two fours were part of his innings.

With two fours and two sixes, captain Richie Berrington amassed 42 unbroken runs in 31 balls.

Leading the batting order with 35 runs in 23 balls was also contributed by George Munsey.
