Scots seal record win

19 February 2019 09:55:42 UK

Scotland completed the most emphatic victory in their international history after dismissing Oman for just 24.

The 10-wicket win was completed in just 21.3 overs courtesy of four wickets apiece for Ruaidhri Smith and Adrian Neill.

However, the result in Al Amarat at the start of the three-match series will not go down in the record books as it did not hold full one-day international status.

Scotland are 13th in the ICC's official ODI rankings, one place below Ireland, but Oman only hold Twenty20 international status.

So the efforts of Glamorgan's Smith and South African-born Neill, who took four for seven two days after marking his T20 international debut with three wickets against the same opposition, will go down in national rather than international folklore.

Sri Lanka have bowled out opponents for under 40 in one-day internationals on three occasions.

During a remarkable two-and-a-half year spell of routing opponents between 2001-2004, they broke the record for record low scores each time.

First, they dismissed Zimbabwe for 38 in Colombo in December 2001 to surpass the total of 43 put up by Pakistan against West Indies in Cape Town eight years earlier.

They then demolished Canada for 36 in the 2003 World Cup in Paarl before improving on their own efforts again in Harare a year later when Zimbabwe made just 35.

Sri Lanka are 25/1 to win the Twenty20 World Cup in 2020, while England are priced at 5/1 and Australia are 11/4.
