Scotland beat Hong Kong in rainy Nagpur


Scotland bowed out of the World Twenty20 with an eight-wicket victory over Hong Kong via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-affected Group B dead rubber on Saturday.

With both teams having lost their first two matches there was nothing but pride on offer in Nagpur and Mark Chapman hit a 41-ball 40 to help Hong Kong to 127-7 from their 20 overs.

However, there were fears the match would not reach a conclusion as the heavens opened, causing a lengthy delay before Scotland's reply.

Scotland were subsequently set an amended target of 76 from 10 overs and they surpassed that tally with two overs to spare - Matthew Cross (22) hitting two sixes and a four from the 14 balls he faced.
