England would have loved to wrap things early. The new ball bowlers were a tad expensive and did not take wickets upfront. Steve Finn was the pick of the bowlers picking up 3 wickets and giving away just 26 runs in his 9 overs. Moeen Ali, Jimmy Anderson and Woakes also picked up 2 wickets each. In all not a convincing performance by England but a win is a win and they would like to build on this victory.

England finally have a win in this World Cup! The Scots started off the chase well scoring freely. They however did not get a partnership going, barring Coetzer-Mommsen partnership worth 60 runs. The inexperience of the Scottish middle order was visible as they gave away wickets to the English bowlers fiddling outside off. They however will take lots of positives from this game with their death bowling been the best positive.
