In the third game of the Super Six in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2023, Scotland claimed their historic first ODI win against West Indies to end the Caribbean team’s final hope of qualifying for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India.

It was the must-win game for West Indies to stay in contention for qualification for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India. As they already lost the last two matches in the Group Stage (against Zimbabwe and Netherlands), the Caribbean team already had a very light hope of booking their ticket for the upcoming ODI World Cup.


West Indies: 181 all out

West Indies had a tough day from the beginning of the game as the all-rounders Roston Chase and Keemo Paul missed the game, while Kyle Mayers and Kevin Sinclair were included in the playing XI. At the Harare Sports Club (Harare), Scotland chose to field first after winning the toss.

In the first innings, opener Johnson Charles and the no.3 batter Shamarh Brooks failed to open their accounts as the West Indies were struggling on 16/2 in four overs. At the end of 10 overs, the Caribbean side was battling at 43/4.

Only with the help of the lower middle-order batters Jason Holder (45) and Romario Shepherd (36), as they had a valuable 77-run partnership for the sixth wicket, West Indies managed to score 181 runs before getting all out in 43.5 overs.

Brandon McMullen was the best Scottish bowler in that innings finishing with the figures of 9-0-32-3. Also, Chris Sole (2/43), Mark Watt (2/25) and Chris Greaves (2/30) bagged two wickets each, and Safyaan Sharif had one wicket (1/16).


Scotland: 185/3 in 43.3 overs

Though the Scottish opener Christopher McBride was dismissed on the first ball of the second innings, another opener Matthew Cross and Brandon McMullen comfortably handled the situation to guide the team to an easy win. While Cross scored 74 not out off 107 balls (seven fours), McMullen shined with the bat too with 69 runs off 106 balls (eight fours and one six).

Scotland chased down the 182 runs target in 43.3 overs after losing three wickets as they won the match by seven wickets (with 39 balls remaining).

West Indies vs Scotland: 1st ODI win and 2nd international win for Scotland

In their fourth ODI meeting, it was Scotland’s first ODI win against West Indies.

However, during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 First Round, the Scottish team recorded their first international win against West Indies by beating the Caribbean team by 42 runs.


West Indies will miss ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023

With the latest result, West Indies are out of the battle of qualifying for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. Only Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Scotland and Netherlands have the chance to grab the two remaining spots for the upcoming ODI World Cup.

India will host ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 between 5 October and 19 November 2023. It will be the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup, but the first time West Indies will not participate.

West Indies won the first two editions of the Cricket World Cup (1975 and 1979), while they played all the first three ODI World Cup Finals (1975, 1979 and 1983). The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 will be the first time when a former World Cup-winning team can’t participate in an edition of the tournament.
