Scotland out of World Cup

7:50 am on 8 June 2009

Scotland have been knocked out of the Twenty20 World Cup cricket tournament after their second loss.

After nearly upsetting New Zealand first up, the Scots have been well beaten by South Africa who ran up a mammoth 211 for 5, then dismissed Scotland for 81.

The foundation for the Proteas' huge total was AB de Villiers' unbeaten 79 from 34 balls.

South Africa play the Black Caps tonight at Lord's.
