Scotland shocks Bangladesh with 6-run win in T20 World Cup

AL AMERAT, Oman (AP) — Scotland has pulled off a major upset against Bangladesh with a six-run victory on the opening day of cricket’s Twenty20 World Cup. Co-host Oman thrashed tournament newcomer Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets in the other Group B game on Sunday. Chris Greaves first lifted Scotland to 140-9 after Bangladesh won the toss and its spinners had reduced the Scots to 53-6. He then picked up the key wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim (38) and Shakib Al Hasan (20) with his leg-spin which eventually restricted Bangladesh’s chase to 134-7.
