Australia thrash Scotland in last group game

Asking Scottish men to bat first after winning the toss Australian bowlers showed no mercy. They rammed into their batting order featuring 5 ducks in the Scotland scorecard. With Matt Machan’s top score of 40, Scotland innings was wrapped up at 130 in 25.4 overs.

In reply Australian skipper Michael Clarke opened the innings with Aaron Finch who blasted 20 of 10 balls before getting dismissed. It was just a matter of time that the strong Australian side chased down the total in 15.2 overs to finish on the 2nd spot in Pool A.
