Scotland batsman Richie Berrington injured in friendly fire: Scotland lost a very hard fought match against Bangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 today. Scotland made 318/8 thanks to Kyle Coetzer’s 156 off 134 balls with 17 fours and 4 sixes. He got some support from Preston Mommsen (39) and Matthew Machan (35).
An amazing thing happened at the fag end of Scotland’s innings. Matthew Cross was facing Taskin Ahmed and Richie Berrington was at the non-striker’s end. Taskin bowled a full delivery and Cross smashed it straight back in Berrington’s general direction. Berrington, who was backing up, had no chance to avoid the bullet like shot and was hit on the hand holding his bat. The bat went flying from his hand while Cross urged him to complete the single. Berrington was seen holding his hand while trying to run, immediately called for the physio. The physio rushed to the ground and checked his hand for damages. After inspection, she sprayed his hand with the magic spray and taped it up a little bit as the other fielders had a welcome break and were enjoying drinks.
Bangladesh chased down the total in a tightly fought match with Tamim Iqbal scoring 95 and Mahmudullah (62), Mushfiqur Rahim (60) and Shakib-Al-Hasan (56) taking Bangladesh to victory by 6 wickets. Kyle Coetzer was named the man of the match for his valiant century which is the first ever by a Scottish batsman in world cup cricket.
