The T20 World Cup 2024 clash between England and Scotland presented an incredible highlight thanks to opening batter Michael Jones. Kicking off the World Cup for both teams, the Scots won the toss and elected to bat first at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. 

And to everyone's surprise, Richie Berrington's Scotland got off to a positive start against an incredible English bowling attack.  The opening pair of George Munsey and Michael Jones started cautiously and then picked up the pace with Jones scoring the bulk of runs and then taking on Chris Jordan. Coming up to bowl the fifth over, Jordan started with a dot ball and carnage ensued.

The Scottish opener hit the second ball for a massive six which went on the roof of the Kensington Oval. Then as the camera followed the maximum, the ball damaged one of the solar panels above the stadium in Bridgetown. After this six, Jones hit Jordan for two consecutive boundaries before ending the over with a single.

Really excited to get this opportunity:  Richie Berrington

Ahead of the match, Scotland captain  Richie Berrington expressed excitement about playing in this World Cup. Speaking at the toss, Berrington said,  "We are going to bat first, wicket looks dry. The wickets can change. It's going to be important to adapt and need to put a good score. It's an early game, could be different."

"Need to quickly adapt. Really excited to get this opportunity. Looking forward to this tournament. Focus is on today's game, as a team we are looking forward to the challenge. A lot of this group was a part of that game," he continued.
