Group A, Match 1, AUS vs SCO: Australia beat Scotland by 203 runs

Australia defeated Scotland by 203 runs in the Group A match at St Kitts on Wednesday. Scotland was all out on the score of 131 runs in 40.1 overs. Colin Smith was the only blessing in disguise for Scotland as he scored his maiden ODI half century.
Chasing a mammoth target of 335 runs set by the world champions Australia, Scotland started their innings on a cautious note. However, the Scots lost the wicket of Majid Haq when he was run out for 16 runs.
Captain Ricky Ponting stroked his fourth World Cup century on Wednesday to propel world champions Australia to 334 for six against Scotland in their opening Group A match. Ponting lofted five sixes and struck nine fours in his 113 from 93 balls, his 23rd international one-day century. He also broke Indian Saurav Ganguly's previous World Cup record of 23 sixes and became the sixth man to reach 1,000 World Cup runs. Scotland captain Craig Wright ensured the spectators, who filled less than half of the 10,000-capacity Warner Park, would get a decent day's cricket by opting to field first after winning the toss on a dull, overcast day. Reported Earlier: Scotlands captain Craig White won the toss and elected to field against the current world champions Australia in St Kitts on Wednesday. While Australia are the 2-1 favourites for the competition, the amateur players of Scotland are rated at 750-1 by British bookmakers William Hill. Also in the group is South Africa, at 5-1 and Netherlands, 1000-1.
Realistically Scotland's best hope for any glory would be against their fellow minnows and it would be a major upset if they managed to beat the Australians or the South Africans. Scotland currently play against English county sides in one-day competition and two of their squad, Dougie Brown and Gavin Hamilton, have actually played for England.
