Scotland v India match abandoned

ICC World Twenty20 Group D, Durban:
India v Scotland

Match abandoned, rain


Scotland's Group D World Twenty20 match against India in Durban was abandoned without a ball being bowled because of persistent rain.

Both sides picked up one point and that meant Pakistan, who beat Scotland by 51 runs in Wednesday's Group D opener, go through to the Super Eights.

Scotland had won the toss and were going to field but rain prevented the players from taking to the field.

India face Pakistan on Friday needing a win to reach the Super Eights.

If Pakistan win, the net run-rates of India and Scotland will decide the second position from the group to go through to the next round.

"We need to win the match comprehensively, that's the best way to qualify," said Dhoni.

Scotland captain Ryan Watson seemed resigned to leaving the tournament after the first round.

"At least we will go home with one more point than the West Indies," he said.
