Scotland off-spinner Majid Haq has been removed from the World Cup squad for posting a tweet with racial undertone after being axed for his side’s Pool A match against Sri Lanka in Hobart on Wednesday.
Almost done to the perfect script Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan scored centuries again as Sri Lanka continued to peak at the right time defeating Scotland in their World Cup Pool A game at Bellerive Oval by 148 runs.

India made short-work of Ireland’s hopes on the back of a sparkling century from Shikhar Dhawan that helped the defending champions chase down 259 at Seddon Park, winning the Pool B World Cup game by eight wickets and 79 balls to spare.
