Scotland vs Ireland CWC 2023 Qualifier 7th Match Highlights

Richie Berrington:

“It’s all the sweeter against Ireland. Absolutely delighted ti start things off with a win. We’ve had a good couple of weeks leading into this in South Africa coming into Zim. We’ll look to keep building on this. It was very tense towards the end. Games like that keep you on the edge of their seat. I don’t think we could have asked for a better start with the ball. McMullen was outstanding and I think he’ll keep getting better. Wasn’t feeling too great at one point but managed to get back onto the field.” That might explain why he didn’t bowl ten overs.”


“The first ten overs when we were batting and the last ten overs when we were bowling took the game away from us. We’ll lick our wounds here and go again next game. The plans were pretty clear and I can’t be too critical of the bowlers, but I can’t fault the bowlers too much. It’s an uphill battle from here But I back our guys to be up to the mark”

Player of the match is Leask:

“We’ve had a few tough games against Ireland, so to get this against them is even more special. Watt played an absolute blinder of an innings too. We’ve got a great bunch of lads and this is just the start of our journey. This is how we’ll play our cricket, we’ll take things deep.”
