Scots defeat Zimbabwe in final WWT20Q warm up

25 Nov


Scotland will march into their ICC WWT20Q campaign on Saturday on the back of a confidence boosting win by 8 runs in their final warm-up match against Zimbabwe.   

Fiona Urquhart and Rachel Scholes saw their side off to a flying start with an opening stand of 76 with 10 overs gone, on what was a slow wicket and outfield, on another hot day in Bangkok. 

Both openers found the boundary with regularity - each striking a maximum - and were building momentum until Scholes (34) was caught on the boundary, and Urquhart (47) found the hands of deep mid-wicket. 

Some good running allowed Scotland to finish their innings on 124/3 with Sam Haggo and Kathryn Bryce unbeaten at the end of the innings. 

Zimbabwe scored 53 in their reply, with the Wildcats claiming 3 wickets after the initial 10 overs. Katie McGill helped take the wind out of the opposition’s sails with two wickets, before Kirstie Gordon produced an impressive spell, taking 4 wickets for 5 runs, to all but seal victory. 

Scotland, as they have done in their previous warm ups, fielded and bowled well, which allowed Aitken to try out a few more options before the selectors pick their XI to represent their country in Saturday’s opener against PNG.
