Scotland got the chance to blow away the isolation cobwebs in the 2022 ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup with a 107-run warm-up win over Uganda.
Uganda won the toss and elected to field giving Scotland the opportunity to post a creditable total of 219 for nine from their 50 overs, with opener Charlie Tear looking impressive making a half century and further contributions from Sam Elstone (29), Jack Jarvis (33) and Charlie Peet adding 26 late on.
In reply, Uganda made a promising start reaching 41 without loss in the ninth before a run out finally broke the opening partnership as Ronald Lutaaya departed for 17 before Oliver Davidson (3/14) dismissed three of the top five and another run out left them at 63 for five. Scotland captain Jamie Cairns also impressed with a three-wicket haul for the concession of just 15 runs.
Nuwagaba was Uganda’s last man out for five off the bowling of Lyle Robertson in a total of 112 as Uganda slipped to a 107-run defeat in 31.2 overs.
Scotland take on Ireland in their next warm up match on Wednesday 12th starting at 2pm (GMT).
