Australia edged past Scotland in a thrilling clash 

In a match that Scotland had to win, Australia managed to reach the target with two balls remaining after taking five wickets and failing to hold their 180-run total. Australia began the chase conservatively, giving up two wickets in the powerplay when down 34 runs.

With 60 runs on the board, Mark Watt then produced a gem of a ball to rattle Glenn Maxwell's stumps. Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis changed the course of the game when they teamed up on the crease. They stitched up an 80-run partnership for 4 wickets. With nine boundaries, including four sixes, in a 68-run innings from 49 balls, Head top-scored for Australia. In the meanwhile, Stoinis amassed a 29-ball 59 off of nine boundaries and two sixes. However, Australia needed 26 runs from the final three overs when both batsmen fell quickly after one another.
