Scottish captain Kyle Coetzer won the toss and decided to play in Papua New Guinea on Tuesday in match five of the first round of the ongoing T20 World Cup. The match will be played at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground in Al Amerat. Scotland, who beat Bangladesh by six runs in their campaign opener, have a chance to reach Group B. They are tied with Oman, who beat Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets but were behind due to a lower net run rate. Scotland’s net run rate is +0.300, while Oman, thanks to their big win on Sunday, has a net run rate of +3.135. All eyes will be on Chris Greaves, who delivered an overall masterclass to help Scotland get Bangladesh better. Scotland faltered at one point at 53 for six when the right-handed victim cleared them away with a quick knock of 45 from 28 deliveries. After that, Greaves sent back the most experienced duo from Bangladesh – Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim – to change the momentum in Scotland’s favor. He finishes with figures of two for 19 and is named player of the match. (Live scorecard)
