World Cup Qualifiers 2023 Scotland vs West Indies Harare: West Indies had to face defeat against Scotland in the World Cup Qualifiers 2023 Super Sixes match. Scotland registered a spectacular 7 wicket win. The West Indies team was out of the ODI World Cup with this defeat. This is the first time that the West Indies team will not play in the ODI World Cup. She has been a two-time champion. There were many reasons behind West Indies’ defeat against Scotland. Out of these, bad batting was an important reason.
The West Indies team got stacked on a score of 181 runs against Scotland. This was an important reason behind his defeat. The batting line up of the team was a complete flop. One of the three major reasons for the defeat was the flop opening. Opener Bandon King was dismissed after scoring 22 runs in 22 balls. While Charles got out without opening an account. Immediately after this, Brooks was also out on zero. The middle order of the team also flopped. Captain Shai Hope was dismissed after scoring 13 runs. Kyle Meyers got out after scoring 5 runs.
Another important reason for West Indies’ defeat was bowling performance. Holder took the first wicket for the team. He dismissed Scotland opener Christopher McBride on zero. But after this, no bowler could break the pair of Cross and McMullen on time. McMullen got out after scoring 69 runs. He hit 8 fours and a six. While Cross remained unbeaten. He scored 74 runs with the help of 7 fours.
The third important reason for West Indies’ defeat was the overall performance of the team. West Indies players did not give 100 percent effort in this match. During the match, the players misfielded and also dropped catches. However, after the defeat, team captain Shai Hope supported the players. He said that missing catches and misfields are part of the match. But I think we have not always tried 100 per cent.
