T20 World Cup, England vs Scotland Highlights, ENG vs SCO: Scotland's hopes of defeating England for a monumental win was dashed by rain, which abandoned the match on Tuesday. England had their task cut out for them as they had to chase a target of 109 in 10 overs in their rain-affected opening match against Scotland. The Scottish openers Michael Jones and George Munsey put up an unbeaten opening partnership of 90 runs despite long rain delays both before and during their innings. The second of those breaks reduced the match to a 10-overs-a-side contest, which meant that Scotland had just 22 balls left in their innings upon resumption. They made the most of that and England now have to score at over 10 runs an over on a tricky wicket....Read More

England are recognised as one of the most formidable teams in limited overs cricket and yet, today they are not just looking to get their title defence off to a good start; they are looking to break what has to be the strangest drought ever. England have never managed to win a match against a fellow Europe-based side in the T20 World Cup.

This will be England's first match against Scotland in the T20 World Cup. In previous editions of the T20 World Cup, England has played two matches each against Ireland and Netherlands and failed to beat either side. England are in Group B alongside arch-rivals Australia, Scotland, Namibia and Oman.

England prepared for the T20 World Cup with a comfortable series win over Pakistan at home, although the players didn't get the kind of match practice that they would have hoped for as two out of the four matches were washed out. Most England players were sweating it out in the IPL though, with key players like captain Jos Buttler and Phil Salt being pulled out of the tournament to play the series against Pakistan despite their respective teams making it to the playoffs.

There will be a lot of eyes on paceman Jofra Archer, who will be playing at his native Barbados for the first time today. Archer spent well over a year on the sidelines, with Buttler admitting that the 29-year-old was "desperate" to return after such a long injury lay-off. Archer was impressive in the series, considering it was his first two games after recovering. He recorded figures of 2/28 in the second T20I and 1/31 in the fourth. England will be hoping that he can get off to a good start on his home ground and do something similar to what he did in their victorious 2019 World Cup campaign.

Here are some highlights from ENG vs SCO T20 World Cup 2024 match:

- Scotland won the toss and chose to bat first

- It started raining just minutes before the start of the match

- A damp spot on the pitch led to a further delay

- The rain returned during the Scotland innings and let to the match being reduced to 10-overs-a-side

- Scotland put up 90/0 in 10 overs, with Michael Jones (45 off 30 balls) and George Munsey (41 off 31 balls) staying unbeaten

- England have been set a target of 109 to chase

- Rain returned just before the England innings, leading to the match being abandoned

T20 World Cup, England vs Scotland Live Score: What a powerplay this has been for Scotland, as grey clouds appear in the horizons and the ground staff appear beyond the boundary lines. Chris Jordan, another Bajan in this English side, bowls the last over. Dot ball to start off with and then Jones hits the second out of the park! In fact it has dented one of the solar screens on the roof of the stadium. The third ball is sent through covers for a four and the fourth ball is sent through midwicket for another four. Single off the last ball and Jones is on 29 off 19, Munsey on 17 off 18.

Scotland uses Flower of Scotland in sports events and England uses God Save the King as its anthem.

T20 World Cup, England vs Scotland Live Score: Jofra Archer's homecoming

T20 World Cup, England vs Scotland Live Score: This will be the first time that Jofra Archer plays an international match in the country and at the ground where it all began for him. Archer had travelled to England to make his name and he did that and more. For a while though, it had looked like all that potential may have fallen by the way side as he missed more than a year of cricket due to recurring injuries. But here he is now, having returned to cricket with the two games England played against Pakistan this month.
