We were in a great position for the first 10 overs We had a really good start but it was a good wicket and we should have executed a bit better with the bat. They have a few good strikers in their team and they managed to pull it back at the back end.”

On this topic, the Scotland skipper said, “ There is a bit of breeze on this ground, so we were trying to make them hit away from the crease. A few overs we didn’t nail, and they capitalised. We were expecting a bit more with the bat after the position we got ourselves in, but all the guys can hold their head up high.”

Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis secured Australia’s victory with two impactful half-centuries. Those knocks pushed the team closer to winning. While praising the opponent. Berrington said, “ A fantastic knock from Travis Head and then Stoinis. We are disappointed but this is a great learning for us.”
