Scotland shocked Group B favourites in their first match of the T20 World Cup.

Scotland shocked Group B favourites West Indies with a 42-run victory in their opening match of the T20 World Cup.

Mark Watt took 3-12, and Brad Wheal and Michael Leask picked up two wickets each as Scotland bowled the two-time winners out for 118 after posting 160-5.

West Indies were reduced to 84-8 and needed 60 runs from the final four overs, and while Jason Holder tried to attack, hitting back-to-back fours, he was last man out – caught by Chris Greaves off Watt.

The platform for the bowlers was laid by a strong batting performance, George Munsey’s 66no from 53 balls setting Scotland in good stead.
