!

That's all we have for today's game. Join us back tomorrow for the matches between West Indies and Ireland at Napier and Ireland and Pakistan at Adelaide. Until then, goodbye and take care.

MICHAEL CLARKE - Credits the way all the boys played. It's always nice to win heading into the quarters. They couldn't have asked for a better prep. Everybody is waiting for the quarters. Adds that he is very pleased they have got there. They have to play their best, if they do, they win, otherwise they will be on their couch watching.

!

PRESTON MOMMSEN - Says that they did not stand up to the challenge today. They will leave this competition as a much better team. Adds that Davey has been brilliant and that he can hold his head high with his performances. Further adds they will shift their focus to T20 qualifiers and hopes they will qualify for that.

!

MITCHELL STARC (Man of the Match) - Says it was important for them to put a polished performance and boys have done well with the bat. Big game next up, knock-out stage and they are raring to go. Adds that working with Craig McDermott has helped him and the ball has been coming out well at the moment.

!

Earlier in the day the Aussies stormed through Scotland's batting. Starc started off and ended things brilliantly. Cummins gave a good supporting hand as well and the others too chipped in. Machan top scored for Scotland with 40 runs. Australia had it easy in the end as they get a win off their last group stage match.

!

Australia have crushed Scotland and with that have secured the second spot in the points table. Chasing a mere 131, Finch raced them away to a good start but departed soon after playing a rash shot. Watson joined Clarke and both continued to play their shots. Just before the rain crept in, Scotland striked, picking two quick wickets. Once play resumed, Warner and Faulkner took them home comfortably as they went berserk from the word go.
