Scotland seal spot in ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024
Scotland won the contest against Denmark by 33 runs at the Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh, to seal their ticket to the 2024 edition of the T20 World Cup.
Scotland had an unblemished record throughout the tournament, winning their matches against Germany, Jersey, Italy, Austria and now Denmark.
With this, Scotland now have 10 points after 5 games, with a T20 World Cup tournament in 2024 beckoning. They join Ireland as the second Qualifier, who sealed their spot earlier today after their game earlier today against Germany was abandoned.
This helped Scotland overcome the heartbreak of their failure of qualifying for the upcoming ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 in India.
