England secured their spot in the Super Eights following Australia's crucial win over Scotland, achieving a five-wicket victory in the decisive Group B match of the T20 World Cup at the Daren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia on Saturday. This outcome knocked out Scotland and enabled England, who had previously triumphed over Namibia in a rain-shortened game in Antigua, to advance to the Super Eights alongside their long-standing rivals. Chasing Scotland's 180 for five, their highest T20 World Cup score, Travis Head's 68 off 49 balls and Marcus Stoinis's 59 off 29 balls led Australia to victory with two balls remaining, maintaining a perfect win record in the group. Tim David sealed the win with an unbeaten 24, though he was fortunate when dropped at deep midwicket before concluding the match with a massive six off Brad Wheal's next delivery. Earlier, Brandon McMullen's aggressive 60 off 34 balls and his 89-run partnership with George Munsey (35) boosted Scotland's scoring rate. However, after McMullen's dismissal by Adam Zampa, Scotland managed only 69 runs in the last 52 balls, falling short of a 200-plus total. Glenn Maxwell took two for 44, while Zampa was the most economical, giving away just 30 runs in four overs. Despite Australia's reputation for excellent fielding, they missed six chances, showing a lapse from their usual high standards.
