Scotland have been bowled out for 88 against India in their Group A encounter of the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2014 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. The Scottish captain Ross McLean won the toss and chose to bat against an unchanged Indian side that won their first game against Pakistan two days ago.
Scotland were rocked early as Chama Milind and Avesh Khan picked up a wicket apiece. However, Andrew Umeed looked much better than all his teammates put together. He was decisive in his strokeplay and was much more positive.
However, once the spinners came into play, it was always tough for Scotland. Aamir Gani started things off as he had Zander Muir hit-wicket. Muir rocked back and tried to cut the ball. Instead, he smashed his bat onto the stumps.
Then, the stage was setup for Yadav. After Umeed got off strike, he had Nick Farrar sweeping one across the line and was caught at square-leg off the top edge. Kyle Stirling walked in with Yadav deciding to go from round the wicket. The ball pitched on a length and instead turned the other way for the chinaman. Stirling was trapped in front while trying to pad.
Yadav had to wait an over for a chance to get his hat-trick and he got there by bowling Alex Baum for five. Aamir Gani then dismissed Chris Sole and effectively ended Scotland’s fight by getting Umeed for 44. Yadav and Gani cleaned up the tail to get their respective four-for.
Scotland Under-19 88 all-out in 29.4 overs (Andrew Umeed 44; Aamir Gani 4 for 28, Kuldeep Yadav 4 for 28) vs India Under-19.
