Scotland's hopes were dampened by rain

Scotland's frustration was palpable after their T20 World Cup clash against England was washed out in Barbados. Despite a promising start by Michael Jones and George Munsey, the relentless rain dashed their hopes of defending a revised target of 109.

Jones expressed his disappointment, citing the team's confidence and annoyance at the unfavourable weather conditions. He emphasised that Scotland has been unlucky with rain interruptions in major tournaments before, highlighting the team's resilience despite the setbacks.

Looking ahead to their upcoming match against Namibia, Jones stressed the importance of maintaining focus and not underestimating their opponent. With the group stage wide open, every game is crucial for Scotland's chances of progressing to the Super 8s.

Captain Richie Berrington echoed Jones' sentiments, reaffirming the team's determination to advance in the tournament. Despite the setback against England, Berrington emphasised the need to remain focused and continue striving for success in the remaining matches.

As Scotland regroups for their upcoming fixtures, their resolve remains unwavering as they aim to overcome challenges and make their mark on the T20 World Cup stage.
