SCOTLAND: Machan stars with bat and ball04-Mar-2013
Sussex’s Matt Machan was the star of the show for Scotland yesterday on his International T20 debut, but his side were defeated by Afghanistan in Sharjah.
Machan, who was born in Brighton but qualifies for Scotland through his Mother, claimed impressive figures of 3 for 23 during his four overs as the Scots restricted Afghanistan to 132 for 7 from their 20 overs.
He also top-scored with the bat, hitting an unbeaten 42 from only 38 balls batting at number five in the order but his team-mates were unable to support the youngster and the tourists reached 105 for 6, which saw them defeated by 27 runs.
