Scorecard

Scotland's dismal World Cup campaign ended in a crushing 69-run defeat in the 13th-place play-off, with a super allround performance by Patrick Ochan being the key to Uganda's first victory of the tournament.

Ochan struck the first fifty by a Uganda batsman in the tournament, and then took 3 for 29 to take his side to a 69-run win in the Plate Championship play-off final.

And that success means they have one more match to play, the final against Ireland on Saturday with the winners able to call themselves the 13th-ranked team in the tournament.

Uganda reached 214 for 9 after being sent in - comfortably their highest score this tournament - and then bowled their opponents out for 145. Ochan faced 81 balls for his 64, including 11 fours. He added 76 for the third wicket with Jimmy Okello (13), Uganda's best stand so far.

Their coach Sam Walusimbi said afterwards: "I thought Patrick batted very well. He was very positive, played some lovely shots and he never looked like getting out until he was dismissed."

Uganda were in trouble at one stage at 145 for 6, with Gordon Goudie and Umair Mohammed grabbing three wickets each, but Emmanuel Isaanez rescued them with a supber 41 to tip them past 200.

Isaanez, who later took 4 for 20, faced just 41 balls and hit five fours and a six as he added 65 for the seventh wicket with Emmanuel Nakaana (16). But extras also helped Uganda's cause, with Scotland conceding 46, including 25 wides.

Scotland lost the early wicket of Goudie for no score but still seemed well-placed at 79 for 2 when, not for the first time in this tournament, their batting fell to pieces.

"We batted poorly and conceded too many extras again," their captain Kasiam Farid said afterwards. "That has been the story of the tournament for us. But we are still a developing country and we have developed during this tournament. Maybe in the future good things can come from this."
