Chasing a target of 181 runs set by Scotland, largely due to a powerful innings from Brandon McMullen, the Australians faced an early setback when David Warner was dismissed in the second over without scoring.

However, Marsh and Travis Head built a steady partnership of 32 runs, taking the score to 34/1 within five overs. Scotland’s bowling attack regained control when Safyaan Sharif dismissed the Australian captain in the sixth over, placing the onus on Glenn Maxwell to stabilize the innings.

Maxwell’s stay at the crease was brief, thanks to a stunning delivery from Mark Watt. On the second ball of the ninth over, Watt bowled an off-break from around the wicket, pitching on a length on the middle stump before sharply turning away.

The ball grazed the outside edge of Maxwell’s bat as he attempted to defend and went on to hit the top of the off stump. As the bails flew, Maxwell sighed in disappointment but acknowledged the brilliance of the delivery with a nod of appreciation.

Watt, in turn, stood in astonishment, covering his mouth in disbelief at the perfection of his delivery. The Twitterverse lit up with praise for Watt’s exceptional ball, with fans flocking to social media to celebrate the moment.
