Aus post easy win

Mitchell Starc continued his impressive World Cup campaign with a four-wicket haul as Australia overpowered Scotland by seven wickets in Hobart on Saturday.

Left-arm paceman Starc took four for 14 in 4.4 overs as Scotland, in their last Pool A match of this tournament, collapsed to 130 all out in barely half their alloted overs after losing the toss at Bellerive Oval. There were five ducks in the innings, with fast bowler Pat Cummins, recalled in place of dropped spinner Xavier Doherty, taking three for 42 in seven overs. Matt Machan top-scored with 40 and Calum MacLeod made 22. Briefscores Australia 133 for 3 (Clarke 47) beat Scotland 130 (Machan 40, Starc 4-14, Pat Cummins 3-42) by seven wickets.
