Heriot’s spinner Mark Watt took two wickets, but Scotland lost their second World Twenty20 cricket match to Zimbabwe by 11-runs in India today.

The Scots headed into the Group B match on the back of a loss against Afghanistan earlier in the week.

However, they started this one well in Nagpur and a run out and a wicket by Carlton’s Ali Evans reduced Zimbabwe to 19-2 in the fourth over.

In the end they made it up to 147-7 from their 20 overs, Sean Williams top scoring with 53 from 36 balls, but the Scots’ bowled pretty well.

Watt took 2-21 and Evans 2-30.

In Scotland’s reply they lost George Munsey early on for eight and then slumped to 95-7.

Richie Berrington (36), captain Preston Mommsen (31) and Josh Davey (24 from 13 balls) tried their best, but the Scoots were eventually all out for 136.

Scotland’s last match is against Hong Kong on Satuday, although they cannot progress into the Super 10.
