Scotland remain unbeaten as Umeed leads them to big win
Scotland have remained unbeaten at the ICC Europe Under-19 Division One Championship today after recording a big win over Guernsey at VOC in Rotterdam.
Guernsey batted first after winning the toss and after putting on 30 for the first wicket inside the first ten overs, proceeded to lose six wickets for just ten runs in the next 15 overs as they collapsed to 40-6.
A recovery of sorts followed when Jason Martin and James Wilkes-Green put on 61 for the seventh wicket, but they made the only significant contributions to the Guernsey innings with 37 and 34 respectively, and Guernsey were eventually bowled out for 112, Chayank Gosain taking 4-16.
Scotland had little trouble chasing down that target, and whilst it wasn't as comprehensive a win as against Denmark, it still goes down as a thumping win. Andrew Umeed led the way with an unbeaten 71 at exactly a run a ball as Scotland won by seven wickets in 28.1 overs.
Scotland will now play a tournament deciding game against Ireland on Thursday, whilst Guernsey will hope to pick up their first win when they play the Netherlands.
