Match Preview:

T20 World Cup 2021, Afghanistan vs Scotland: Afghanistan will take on Scotland in the Match 17 of the T20 World Cup 2021 today at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Afghanistan & Scotland will head into this clash on the back of scintillating wins in their previous clashes & will be looking ahead to capitalize on the same today to get off to a good start in the T20 World Cup 2021.

Afghanistan will play their first clash of the ICC men’s T20 World Cup 2021. They have improved a lot in the recent past especially in the T20 format of cricket. The team has a well-balanced squad & will be hoping to script history by displaying brilliant performance. The presence of Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Rashid Khan makes Afghanistan’s spin attack formidable, and the three players are likely to cause havoc on the slow and sluggish UAE tracks.

Scotland on the other hand delivered swashbuckling performances in the Round 1 fixtures & qualified for the Super 12s stage after finishing on top of the Round 1 points table by winning all three matches of the Qualification stage. Scotland’s first defeated Bangladesh in their first qualification match & then followed it up with the wins over PNG & Oman to finish at the top of the Group B table. Scotland will look forward to carrying ahead their winning momentum in the Super 12s stage by clinching some crucial matches.

With both, the teams eyeing a win expect a crackling contest today at the grounds of Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Pitch Report

The trach here at Sharjah Cricket Stadium is slow in nature & thus a low-scoring contest is on cards. There is not much swing on offer and so the pacers will have a tough time finding the right line and length.

Weather Forecast

Well, we’re expecting another clear day. It most likely will be a full game of cricket.

Probable XI


Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Karim Janat, Asghar Afghan, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (c), Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Hamid Hassan.


George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Bradley Wheal, Alasdair Evans

Afghanistan vs Scotland Match Prediction

Scotland has won all the three matches of the Qualifier stage they have played so far & they will look forward to extending their winning run in the Super 12s stage of the tournament. On the other hand. Afghanistan is well balanced & comprises more strong line-up as compared to Scotland. Thus Afghanistan could have an edge over the Scottish squad.
