Default scotland defeated somerset!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is totally unbelievable at this moment. Scotland defeated somerset by 15 runs. somerset is in the limelight now when they defeated australia. however, they failed to continue their superb form, ultimately lost to scotland. remember, smith and jayasurya drafted the win against australia, they were still in the team when they lost to scotland.

Yes, its unbelievable. But I think players like Smith and Jaysuriya took them lightly and they got the result of it. Nevertheless, this win is a great achievement for a team like Scotland. BTW the thread belongs to International Cricket.

Two of the Scotland players :

JA Beukes : South African
Yasir Arafat : Pakistan

Check their performance against Somerset.

see, in the 1999 world cup, we beat pakistan by 62 runs...and in the group matches pakistan won over australia by 10 runs...that means, we would beat the aussies by 72runs..

Why aren't you concentrating on the Australia game? Great start for Bangladesh. Keep it going.

Yes a bit better from the Scottish Saltires. Especially coming just after Somerset beat Australia. Somerset were missing a couple of bowlers, but they were against Australia as well.

As a team in the one day league the side is allowed two overseas players (Beukes, Arafat) just like the counties. After all Somerset had Graeme Smith and Jayasuriya (and West Indian Nixon McLean!?). We don't have much money and in fact these two players are club professionals in Scotland. Arafat is in his 5th season. So they do reflect Scottish club cricket. They will travel back to Scotland to play club cricket on Saturday between two games and Beukes can't play on Sunday since he has a club game he is required to play.

However I would have liked to have seen more from the other players. Nevertheless you can't win a game like that without a great team effort. By yhe way Smith looked interested enough to score 70 odd.

Actually it's not too much of a surprise. We lost the earlier game against Somerset by 16 runs and have beaten them once before. Not bad since the side beat Warwickshire a couple of weeks ago and stretching a point they have beaten 3 counties in the last 8 games. Derbyshire being the other side who were beaten by 8 wickets at the end of last season.

Anyway lots of room for improvement! So we will suffer plenty more defeats against the counties.
