Pakistan had set a 190-run target for the Scottish team
DUBAI: Pakistan on Sunday defeated Scotland by 72 wickets in Sharjah as the Men in Green set up a 190-run target for the opponents.
Scotland could only score 117 runs at the loss of 6 wickets at the end of the 20th over.
Scotland openers George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer proved to be tough nuts to crack for Pakistan’s star bowlers as they held on despite a barrage of bouncers delivered by Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
Hassan Ali was able to dent the Scottish armour though with a piercing delivery that hit the off stump at 5.3 overs, dismissing Coetzer.
Next to go was Matthew Cross, run out by Imad Wasim at 7.6 overs.
Shadab struck in the 11th over to claim George Munsey and Dylan Budge’s scalps.
Michael Leask was the next one to be sent back to the pavilion as he was bowled by Shaheen Afridi after scoring 14 runs.
