Scotland seal final spot in ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024

Scotland become the second of the two teams to seal an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 berth from the ongoing Europe Qualifier.

They 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.

They 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.
