Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the 27th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Its a Pool A, between Bangladesh and Scotland at the Saxton Oval in Nelson on Thursday. This is Sandipan Banerjee, and I will be bringing you the over-by-over updates of the match. READ Match Preview: Bangladesh vs Scotland

With both the teams being minnows, this can well be said to be a low-voltage encounter. However, with both being minnows, this expects to be a tough encounter, especially for Bangladesh it turns out to be an important one as a win would keep their hopes alive for the quarter-finals. Whereas, a loss could more or less, dash their hopes of qualifying and could well put them in a pressure situation. ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: POINTS TABLE

Scotland, on the other hand have lost all the three games they have played so far and are more or less out of the contention of being in the quarter-finals. However, the tournament is far from being over for them as they would still want to make it through by winning the remaining three, and if they don;t able to make it, they would love to act as the party-spoilers for the other teams. ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: SCHEDULE & MATCH DETAILS

Saxton Oval has a somewhat flat track, known to favour the batting side. Of the four matches played here, three have been won by the side batting second — which is probably a statistic the captains would want to have a look at. ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: Complete Coverage
