Scotland vs West IndiesMatch 7, World Cup Qualifiers Super Sixes

 

Super Six table toppers Windies lock horns against third-placed Scotland in the match 7 of World Cup Qualifiers Super Sixes at Harare Sports Club. West Indies have had a good run in the event so far, having lost only once. In their last game against the hosts Zim, Windies successfully chased down the target of 290 runs.

A win over Scotland on Wednesday will ensure top spot and the ticket to World Cup for the West Indies team. If they lose, they will rely on the UAE to beat Zim on Thursday, besides hoping for a better Net Run Rate than Ireland and Afghanistan should either team win their remaining matches.
