BAN Vs SCO, ICC T20 World Cup 2021: Scotland Stun Bangladesh By 6 Runs - Highlights

Day 1, Game 2, And First Shock! Scotland produced a thrilling win over Bangladesh in the second match of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in Al Amerat, Oman on Sunday. Put in to bat in their Group B opener, Scotland were looking down the barrel at 53/6 in 11.3 overs. But they turned the table with Chris Greaves, in his second T20I, first hitting 45 off 28 balls then taking two wickets for 19. The 31-year-old was ably supported by Mark Watt, who hit 22 off 17 and took a wicket, and Bradley Wheal, who claimed three for 24. On a day Shakib Al Hasan became the highest wicket-taker in T20Is, Bangladesh played the first quarter of the game perfectly, then lost the plot. In the last over, however, Mahedi Hasan tried to pull off a win but '24 in 6' was always going to require a miracle. In T20 cricket, two fours and a six in one over don't really count as a miracle though. And the result, a six-run defeat. Catch cricket scores and highlights of ICC T20 Cricket World Cup, Group B match between Bangladesh and Scotland here:
