Myburgh shines before rain intervenes

06 March 2016 | David Clark

Scotland were frustrated by the weather as just 15 overs were possible in their ICC World Twenty20 warm-up against the Netherlands.

Stephan Myburgh’s half-century guided the Dutch to 133 for three before the rain arrived in Mohali, with Ben Cooper left stranded on 49 from 38 deliveries.

Safyaan Sharif took 2-30 for the Scots, while Josh Davey ousted Tom Cooper with what proved to be the last ball of the contest.

It means Scotland’s top order, which folded to 14 for four in their previous warm-up game against Oman, will get no further time in the middle before their opening game of the tournament against Afghanistan on Tuesday.

The Netherlands start their campaign on Wednesday against Asia Cup finalists Bangladesh.
