Right-arm pacer Shiva Sankar (3/17) was the star performer for West Indies with the ball. Off-break bowler Onaje Amory (2/26) and left-arm spinner Anderson Mahase (2/16) also chipped in with wickets.

West Indies currently occupy the second spot in Group D standings ahead of Australia by virtue of a better bet run rate. They will face Sri Lanka on Friday 21 January.

Summarised scores:

Scotland Under-19s 95 off 35.1 overs (Oliver Davidson 43; Shiva Sankar 3-17, Anderson Mahase 2-16, Onaje Amory 2-26). West Indies Under-19s 96 for three off 19.4 overs (Shaqkere Parris 26, Teddy Bishop 23 not out). West Indies won by seven wickets.
