Scotland were in the 32nd over when Windies off-spinner Ashley Nurse rapped Berrington's pads and umpire Paul Wilson raised his finger after lengthy deliberation. Although the ball deflected into the off side, replays showed it had struck Berrington in or just outside the line of leg stump and would have gone past the stumps with the spin.
Berrington was unable to review, with the International Cricket Council electing not to use the decision review system in this tournament. Scotland were already behind the DLS par score when Berrington departed and George Munsey 32 not out and Michael Leask 14 not out did subsequently up the scoring rate with a series of boundaries.
Yet the loss of a fifth wicket put the Scots further behind the par score, with Munsey and Leask not able to make up the deficit in adding 20 more runs in 22 balls before heavy rain forced the umpires to call for the covers.

In reply, the Scots lost captain Kyle Coetzer and fellow opener Matt Cross inside the first four overs to slump toechoing their opponents' early struggles on a tricky pitch.
Michael Jones played well for his 14 but fell into a trap, hooking a well-directed Kemar Roach bouncer straight to fine leg to leave Scotlandbefore Calum MacLeod 21 and Berrington put on 42 for the fourth wicket. Nurse then dismissed MacLeod with a wonderful low catch to his left off his own bowling, before he saw Munsey dropped by Gayle for just five at slip, with the Scot hitting back through a series of superb reverse sweeps.
Yet Scotland had perhaps ultimately given themselves too much to do to get in front of the par score as they failed to score fluently off miserly bowling by Roach, Nurse and Keemo Paul.This plan has been designed by the game, for the game.
