Monday preview

Scotland were overwhelmed in the Super 12 stage of last year’s World Cup, losing all five matches, but in the first round they shone and they will look to defy the odds in Australia this month.

But qualifying for the Super 12 stage could be much tougher this time around with Scotland joined by West Indies, Ireland and Zimbabwe in Group B.

The underachieving Windies are Scotland’s first opponents and although Shane Burger’s men will be against them there is one player they can usually rely on in the crease.

Richie Berrington has replaced retired Kyle Coetzer as Scotland captain since the last World Cup and he could lead by example.

Berrington was his country’s top scorer in the tournament in Oman and the United Arab Emirates last year, scoring 177 goals in eight appearances.

He was also his team’s best player in their recent warm-up with the Netherlands, scoring 41 from 29, and possibly top scorer against the Windies.

Later in the day, Zimbabwe and Ireland face off in the other Group B game in Hobart. The Irish are marginal favorites to win at 4-5 with Zimbabwe tied.
