Scotland 198 for 6 (Munsey 65, Berrington 48, Mustafa 2-38) beat UAE 108 all out (Shahzad 34, Sharif 3-21) by 90 runs
After a lacklustre group stage, defending co-champions Scotland showed they still had enough left in the tank after two off days to see off the tournament hosts as George Munsey’s second half-century of the event laid the platform for a lopsided 90-run win over UAE. The result clinched Scotland’s second straight trip to the T20 World Cup and fourth appearance overall.
The Netherlands had executed a brilliant plan to negate Munsey’s bread and butter scoring option, the reverse sweep, in Scotland’s last group match in Dubai International Stadium on Sunday. But the UAE had no answers to the shot on Wednesday as Munsey cracked a pair of sixes with the shot off Sultan Ahmed to get his innings going in the third over and never looked back.
