Scotland defeated two-time Twenty20 World Cup champions West Indies by 42 runs on Monday, thanks to George Munsey’s unbeaten half-century and some inspired bowling. The shocking result comes just one day after Namibia thrashed Asia Cup champions, Sri Lanka, in the tournament’s opener in Australia. Munsey’s 53-ball 66, which included nine boundaries, helped Scotland to 160-5 after being put in to bat first in Hobart. West Indies, champions in 2012 and 2016, were bowled out for 118 in 18.3 overs, led by left-arm spinner Mark Watt.

George Munsey | Scotland

Stats: 66* off 53 balls

Although the injury is not severe, it is not ideal. I’ll have to see how I feel tonight before deciding how to proceed for the rest of the week. I’m always searching for ways to improve, and the team did an excellent job. They fought hard in the field and made some spectacular catches; Mark Watt was especially brilliant with his figures and bowling; he was genuinely outstanding. Overall, it was an excellent performance. After the rain delay, my teammates relieved me of the strain, and I was able to enjoy the opening of the game. After the break, it became more difficult, but I always enjoy playing in Australia. We knew we had a high score and committed to our plan to defend it.
