Scotland seeks another Cricket World Cup win with the best squad in League 2.
Scotland have defeated more fancied opponents in prior ICC Men’s T20 World Cups but have yet to win a Cricket World Cup.
Scotland must win the Zimbabwe Qualifier to qualify for the Cricket World Cup in India later this year.
George Munsey is content playing the dark horse as Scotland seeks one of the two Cricket World Cup berths at the Qualifier.
Munsey’s fifty supports Scotland.
“We are the slight underdogs but I know for a fact that these other teams are not taking us lightly,” Munsey added.
We learned it by playing and beating larger teams on the international stage.
It excites us all. The World Cup includes just 10 teams, so we are competing with the greatest, which is something to be proud of.
“During this pre-camp in South Africa, one player mentioned this ‘pinch yourself’ moment.
We have a tremendous chance in our group, which is highly competitive.
“There are no easy games, that is for sure, but I am confident in the guys that we brought over to get the job done and there are some exciting fixtures to look forward to, which is always nice.“
Scotland, Ireland, Oman, and the UAE are in Group B of the CWC Qualifier starting June 18.
The warm-up matches will be essential for an outfit that has not played together since the last League 2 ODI in February, when Scotland was fighting for pride with a ticket in the Qualifier already guaranteed.
Munsey scored an unbeaten 66 in the thrilling 42-run T20 World Cup 2022 win against West Indies.
After scoring 103* from 61 balls against Namibia in the previous ODI, the opener ended League 2 with a good 60 against Nepal.
