Scotland, ranked 15th in the world, started their Men’s T20 World Cup campaign in brilliant fashion by shocking two-time winners West Indies on Monday.

Chasing 161 to win, a mixture of woeful batting and disciplined bowling saw the Windies bowled out for 118, to lose by 42 runs in Group B.

Scotland made 160-5, with opener George Munsey striking an unbeaten 66 from 53 balls. In reply, West Indies were shot out for 118 with Jason Holder’s 38 being the highest.

After the contest, West Indies Head Coach Phil Simmons said he was disappointed by what he termed ‘unprofessional’ batting.
