Al Amerat (Muscat), Oct 19 (TIWN) Scotland could be in the best possible position to emerge as the first team from First Round Group B to stake a claim for a 'Super 12' berth when they take on Papua New Guinea in their second match of the ICC T20 World Cup here later on Tuesday.

Scotland and PNG have had contrasting starts to their campaigns here, with Kyle Coetzer’s side causing a major upset by defending a modest total against Bangladesh for only their second victory in World Cups. Debutants PNG, though, were overwhelmed by Oman.  Scotland, though, said that they were “humbled” and “excited” at the position they find themselves in, adding that they weren’t thinking too far ahead about potentially topping the table. But whatever they say, a win on Tuesday will put them in the best position to finish in the top-two of the group and make it to the ‘Super 12’ stage.
