“I love stories like that…”: Nat Sciver-Brunt on Scotland’s qualification

England all-rounder Nat Sciver-Brunt praised Scotland for qualifying for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024, their first-ever qualification for the tournament. Scotland had previously participated in the Qualifier events in 2015, 2018, 2019, and 2022 but had never progressed beyond the initial stages. Led by captain Kathryn Bryce, Scotland’s performance in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier 2024 was exceptional, with their only losses coming against Sri Lanka in the group stage and the final.

Sciver-Brunt, who has played with Kathryn and Sarah Bryce at The Blaze in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, expressed her excitement for the Scottish players’ achievement, stating, “Really chuffed for them. I love stories like that. Teams battling it out to get to a stage where they haven’t been before and it is really exciting to see some new faces around the competition.”

She also acknowledged Scotland’s experience, noting that three or four players from the team have good experience of cricket in England and in tournaments worldwide, emphasizing that Scotland should not be taken lightly in the upcoming tournament.

In the Qualifier event, Scotland dominated Group A, defeating Uganda, USA, and Thailand convincingly to advance to the semi-finals with six points. In the semi-final against Ireland, Kathryn Bryce’s stellar performance, including a remarkable opening spell with the ball and a composed, unbeaten 35-run innings, guided Scotland to the final and secured their qualification for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2024 in Bangladesh.

Despite missing their captain in the final against Sri Lanka, where Chamari Athapaththu’s century led Sri Lanka to victory, Scotland’s journey to qualification was a remarkable achievement, showcasing their potential in the world of women’s cricket.
