Scotland’s cricketers cannot afford to be “timid” and must be looking to score well over 300 runs against Sri Lanka on Tuesday if they are to cause a shock, according to batsman Craig Wallace.
“The bar has definitely been raised in the last year or two in terms of the expectations on us as a team in this format,” he said.
“It’s quite exciting as a batter when you’re going out there with a target of making 300 plus every time. You’ve got to play your shots. There’s no time to be timid and that’s exciting.
“We’ve just tried to keep believing in what we want to do. The Afghanistan game [a tight defeat on May 10] was really close and we couldn’t quite get over the line and we know we need to play good cricket if we are going to win games like this.”
