Pakistan to bat first against Scotland in second T20I

Pakistan wins toss, decides to bat first against Scotland

EDINBURG: Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat against Scotland in the second and final T20 international today, after beating the hosts by 48 runs in the series opener in Edinburgh on Tuesday.
Having taken out the world´s top one-day international side with a historic win over England on Sunday, the Scots were looking to complete a stunning double by toppling a Pakistan team rated as the top Twenty20 nation.
But Grant Bradburn´s side were unable to emulate their epic success thanks to a solid Pakistan display.
The hosts´ run chase went flat as Scotland finished on 156 for six in response to Pakistan´s 204 for four at the Grange.
Captain Sarfraz Ahmed led the way as he racked up an impressive unbeaten 89 from just 49 balls, with Shoaib Malik hitting 53 from 27 deliveries.– Agencies
