Scotland secured a berth for themselves in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup as they topped Group B in Round 1 of the ICC event. While they registered a massive win over Bangladesh in their first match of the competition, they also handed defeats to Papua New Guinea and Oman.
While their qualification in the Super 12 round is being looked at as a huge achievement in itself, Scotland are looking to put up a stern challenge against India who are one of the prime contenders of lifting the World Cup this year.
The same was evident in the way left-arm spinner Mark Watt, who scalped three wickets in their Round 1 match against Oman and was miserly giving away runs at only 5.41, said that he has some plans ready for Virat Kohli ahead of their Super 12 match on November 5. He added that Kohli should be worried but refused to give away any details for his plans.
"I've got quite a few plans for Virat. I'm going to keep them hush-hush at the moment, but I think he should be worried," Watt could be seen in response to a journalist at a press conference. The video of this question and Watt's reply was also posted by Cricket Scotland on their social media.
"Our man @chris_868 with the hard-hitting questions for @markwatt123 on his plans for Virat Kohli... 🎙️," their post was captioned.

As a result of their qualification, Scotland will not only compete against India but will have matches lined up against New Zealand and Afghanistan. Watt also reflected on the challenges of bowling to great batters like Kohli and Kane Williamson.
"I mean, that's why you play the game, isn't it, to play against big stars. You want to challenge yourself with the best, and they certainly are the best in the world. All the guys are just absolutely buzzing to showcase their skills against the whole world. That's why you want to get into the World Cup is to play against the best teams and the best players in the whole world to challenge yourself," Watt said as quoted by ICC.
