Scotland romped home to a comfortable five-wicket win over Namibia at the Kensington Oval in Barbados in match number 12 of the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup.

Winning captain Richie Berrington led his team from the front in a clinical run-chase after his new-ball pace mates Brad Wheal and Brad Currie claimed five wickets between them.

Here’s the timeline of how NAM vs SCO panned out in Barbados:

NAM vs SCO Highlights: Brad Wheal, Currie Take Early Command For Scotland

Scotland’s new-ball speedsters Brad Wheal and Brad Currie both struck within their opening spells to remove Namibia opener JP Kotze and number three batter Jan Frylinck respectively at 19-2.

Wheal and Currie’s bowling partner Chris Sole also got the ball swinging at the top, as he accounted for the wicket of well-set opener Nikolaas Davis as Namibia slipped to 37-3 on their way to a 48-run powerplay start.

NAM vs SCO Highlights: Captain Gerhard Erasmus Leads NAM From The Front

With wickets tumbling at one end, Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus led his team’s run-scoring charge by smearing 52 runs from just 31 balls. Erasmus’ 51-run partnership with Zane Green took Namibia past the 100-run mark before the skipper was out stumped by Scotland wicketkeeper Matthew Cross to become Michael Leask’s only wicket of the evening at 106-5.

NAM vs SCO Highlights: Wheal And Currie Restrict NAM To 155-9

Following the dismissal of half-centurion Gerhard Erasmus, Scotland’s new-ball pace mates Brad Wheal and Brad Currie returned to disrupt Namibia’s scoring rate at the death. While Wheal removed both of Namibia’s well-set batters David Wiese and Zane Green in quick succession to finish with figures of 3-33, Currie bowled a tight penultimate over to restrict Namibia to just 155-9 by the completion of their innings.

NAM vs SCO Highlights: Lungameni And Erasmus Ensure NAM Stay In Front At Halfway Stage

Defending 156 runs for a win, fast bowler Tangeni Lungameni did the trick for Namibia as David Wiese’s bucket hands at mid-off served him well to get rid of Scotland opener George Munsey.

Namibia captain Gerhard Erasmus accounted for the other two batters from Scotland’s top three before Bernard Scholtz’s timely breakthrough reduced Richie Berrington and co. to 73-4 in 11 overs.

NAM vs SCO Highlights: Captain Berrington Aces Scottish Chase With Leask

Forming forces at 73-4, Scotland captain Richie Berrington and number six batter Michael Leask (35 off 17 balls) shared additional 74 runs to the total from the subsequent seven overs to take their team at the brink of a remarkable victory.

Berrington himself top-scored in the innings through a match-defining 35-ball 47* to steer his side home with an over-and-a-half and five wickets to spare.
