Scotland bowed out of the World Twenty20 with an eight-wicket victory over Hong Kong via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-affected Group B dead rubber on Saturday.

With both teams having lost their first two matches there was nothing but pride on offer in Nagpur??and Mark Chapman hit a 41-ball 40 to help Hong Kong to 127-7 from their 20 overs.

However, there were fears the match would not reach a conclusion as the heavens opened,??causing a lengthy delay before Scotland's reply.

Scotland were subsequently set an amended target of 76 from 10 overs??and they surpassed that tally with two overs to spare ?????Matthew Cross (22) hitting two sixes and a four from??the 14 balls he faced.
