Do or die for Scots; CRICKET.

Preston Mommsen reckons it's now or never for Scotland at the World Twenty20 in India if they are to break into the big time.

The Saltires kick off the first round in Nagpur on Tuesday with three games in five days againstAfghanistan,Zimbabwe and Hong Kong - with only the group winner landing a crack at the A-List in the Super 10 phase.

The Scots added to a string of glorious failures with a blank Down Under at last year's 50-over World Cup and skipper Mommsen, whose side facethe Dutch in a final warm-up today, says it's time to deliver.

He said: "Those losses were hard to accept. But we learnt a huge amount. And that ruthlessness needed to be evident on the park."
