Australia vs Scotland Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024: Head, Stoinis depart as AUS need 13


Australia vs Scotland Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024 Match Today:  Australia need 13 runs to defeat Scotland from the final two overs of their final group stage match against Australia. Set a target of 181 runs, Australia were in deep trouble at one stage, reeling at 60/3 in the 9th over before Travis Head (68 off 49 balls) and Marcus Stoinis (59 off 29) dragged the side back in contention.

It’s a game where victory could send the Scots to the Super 8 stage. Australia have already sealed their entry to the next stage.

Earlier, riding on batting heroics from Brandon McMullen (60 runs off 34 balls), George Munsey (35) and skipper Richie Berrington (42) Scotland managed to set Australia a target of 181. McMullen blasted a 26-ball half century before being dismissed for 60 runs while Munsey scored 35 runs as they set up Scotland for a big total. Australia had won the toss and asked Scotland to bat first in their clash in Gros Islet, St Lucia.

England’s win over Namibia last night means that Scotland need a victory today, which will see them through. However, defeat will bring the NRR into play, where England have the advantage. Both England and Scotland are on five points ahead of the start of the final Group B game of the 2024 T20 World Cup. Australia are currently unbeaten with three wins from as many games. Scotland, on the other hand, need at least a point to qualify for the next round from Group B after England managed to sneak to victory via the DLS method after rain intervention in Antigua on Saturday.

Ahead of the match, Josh Hazlewood made the world sit up and take notice by suggesting that there will be temptation for them to try and assist the ouster of England.

So far at the T20 World Cup, six of the eight teams for the next round are confirmed with India, USA, Australia, West Indies, Afghanistan and South Africa progressing.
