Eng v Sco - 6th Match, Group B, Barbados

England and Scotland beaten by rain in Barbados

Scotland 90 for 0 (Jones 45*, Munsey 41*) vs England (match abandoned)

England's defence of the T20 World Cup suffered an early setback as their opening match against Scotland in Barbados was washed out.

Only 10 overs were possible amid regular showers and the match was abandoned.

That came after Scotland posted 90-0 – a target revised to a tough 109 in 10 overs because of the interruptions.

In the play possible, England were sloppy.

Mark Wood had George Munsey caught on 16 but the left-handed opener was reprieved when Wood was shown to have bowled a front-foot no-ball.

After a break of more than two hours, Scotland added 39 in 3.4 overs, Munsey ending 41 not out and Michael Jones unbeaten on 45, to set England their imposing target – one they ultimately did not have chance to pursue because the rain returned.

The result is by no means terminal for either side's hopes of progressing from the group which also includes Australia, Oman and Namibia but heightens the importance of those later games.
