India’s hope to qualify for the semi-final is still alive. On November 7, if Afghanistan beats New Zealand then there is full chance of India’s qualification. Although New Zealand is very strong team but India hopes that Afghanistan must win in that game.

In the match against Scotland, India’s captain and birthday boy Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl first and this decision proved very beneficial when India’s bowlers took wickets over wickets of Scotland’s batters.

No batter of Scotland could score even more than 25 because India’s bowlers did very good and skillful bowling. George Munsey (24), Michael Leask (19) and Calum MacLeod (16) are the highest scoreres of Scotland.
