T20WC Warm-ups: Windies, Scotland score easy victories

UAE and Netherlands have a lot to learn from their loss

Windies move past a brave UAE show

West Indies walked into the T20 World Cup on the back of two disappointing shows against the defending champions, Australia. But Monday (October 10) presented them with an opportunity of overturning their fortunes, against the new steady risers in international cricket, the United Arab Emirates. 

Despite crashing to 10/2, a scintillating partnership between middle-order batters – Brandon King and Nicholas Pooran – ensured that the two-time T20 World Champions got to a respectable total against a strong UAE bowling unit. While King scored a 45-ball 64, a knock where he split the field for seven boundaries and two sixes, Pooran scored a 31-ball 46, clearing the boundary five times.

For UAE, the pick of the bowlers was Junaid Siddique, the right-arm pacer, who ended with figures of 5/13. While UAE might have just lost by 17 runs, their batting never at any point in the game showed signs of coming close to the Windies total. 

Barring contributions from opener, Muhammad Waseem (69) and lower-order batter, Zawar Farid (29), there was only disappointment in the middle-order, as Raymon Reifer emerged as the pick of the Windies bowlers, with a spell of 3/17. Obed McCoy going for 50 runs in his spell might come as a concern for the Men in Maroon. 

Brief Score: West Indies 152/9 (Brandon King 64, Nicholas Pooran 46; Junaid Siddique 5/13) beat UAE 135/6 (Muhammad Waseem 69, Zawar Farid 29; Raymon Reifer 3/17) by 17 runs in Melbourne.

All-round Scotland breeze past Netherlands

Scotland on the other hand, earned an impressive win against one of the favourites for qualification – Netherlands. Scotland skipper Richie Berrington led the way, with a 41, while Michael Leask made important contribution with a 37, taking Scotland’s total to 151/7. 

From the bowling front for Netherlands, it was Brandon Glover and Bas de Leede, who picked up three wickets a piece to restrict the Scotland batters. But Netherland’s batting never took off, as they struggled massively against the Scottish bowling unit, who managed to restrict them to just 133/7, winning the warm-up clash by 18 runs, a margin not too different from the one that West Indies managed. 

For the Orange, it was Max O’Dowd, who top-scored with 43, as pacer Brad Wheal starred with the ball for Scotland, with figures of 2/24. 

Brief Score: Scotland 151/6 (Richie Berrington 41, Michael Leask 37; Brandon Glover 3/17) beat Netherlands 133/7 (Max O’Dowd 43, Vikram Singh 31; Brad Wheal 2/24) by 18 runs in Melbourne.
