Match Preview:

T20 World Cup 2021, Bangladesh Vs Scotland: The second match of the T20 World Cup 2021 will see Scotland lock horns with Bangladesh at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground on Sunday. Both the teams are placed in Group B of Round 1 fixtures along with Oman & PNG.

Coming to Bangladesh, the Tigers are heading into this clash after facing consecutive losses in two warm-up matches they have played. In their first clash against Sri Lanka, Bangaldesh won the toss & opted to bat first. They put up an average score of 147 for the chasing team. In reply, Sri Lanka chased the target with four wickets & six balls to spare.

Their losing streak continued in their second warm-up match against Ireland. The Ireland squad put up a total of 177-3 in twenty overs, thanks to an unbeaten 88 runs knock by Gareth Delany. In reply, Bangladesh was wrapped up for 144 runs with Soumya Sarkar and Nurul Hasan contributing 37 and 38 runs, respectively. Bangladesh would aim to rise up & perform well tomorrow in their opening clash against Scotland.

On the other hand, Scotland will march into this clash riding on the confidence from their previous wins. Scotland has won both of their warm-up matches. The Scotland squad has locked horns with the Netherlands on October 12. After opting to bat first Scotland scored 122-6 in twenty overs. In reply, Netherlands were bowled out for meager 91 runs. Mark Watt and Chris Greaves picked up four wickets apiece to lead their team to victory.

Scotland’s second encounter against Namibia was a high-scoring affair. After being sent in to bat first, Scotland ended their innings at just 203-7. George Munsey & Matthew Cross scored 67 & 57 runs to take Scotland to a decent total. In reply, Namibia scored 184 runs for the loss of five wickets. Scotland’s Bradley Wheal and Mark Watt picked up two wickets apiece but all went in vain as they lost the match to Scotland.

Weather Forecast

A crystal clear day is on the cards, so a full game without interruptions can be expected.

Pitch Report

The Ameerat pitch at Oman is both bowlers & batters friendly. Toss doesn’t matter here as the pitch offers the same result to both the teams batting or chasing. Thus, both teams will have to execute their plans to perfection if they want to start their campaigns on a winning note. Spinners have done well as compared to the pacers on this wicket. So captains could opt to field an extra spinner on Sunday.

Probable XIs

Bangladesh

Mohammad Naim, Liton Das (c), Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah.

Scotland

George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Calum MacLeod, Dylan Budge, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Bradley Wheal.

Match Prediction

Scotland would be brimming with confidence after winning both of their warm-up matches while Bangaldesh has lost both of their matches. So the chances of Scotland over-powering Bagadesh would be high.

Prediction: Scotland to win this match.
