Pakistan have wrapped up a comfortable 51-run victory. Afridi has been the star, scoring 22 off seven balls and taking 4 for 19 as Pakistan dismissed Scotland for 120. No surprise then that he's been adjudged the Man of the Match. Umar Gul also took four wickets in a disciplined bowling performance.

We've got one more game coming up. Australia are taking on Zimbabwe in Cape Town and that game begins at 6.00 pm.
