Oman v Sco - 20th Match, Group B, Antigua

Scotland thrash Oman to boost Super 8s hopes

Oman 150/7 (Athavale 54 , Ayaan 41, Sharif 2-40)
Scotland 153/3 (McMullen 61*, Munsey 41)
Scotland win by seven wickets

Scotland raced to a comprehensive seven-wicket victory over Oman at the T20 World Cup to go top of Group B.

A wonderful unbeaten 61 from Brandon McMullen guided Scotland to their target of 151 in just 13.1 overs as Richie Berrington's side delivered a real statement.

Safyaan Sharif marked his 200th Scotland cap with two wickets before the batting line-up took over.

George Munsey and Michael Jones set the tone before McMullen took charge with a series of eye-catching shots all around the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

The nature of the result leaves Scotland in a strong position to make the Super 8s and leaves England's qualification hopes hanging by a thread.

A win over Australia next Sunday would guarantee the Scots' place in the next stage, while even a loss could see them through.

In that scenario, England would need to win both their games against Oman and Namibia and also overhaul Scotland's healthy net run-rate.
