AFG vs SCO Betmaster Match Prediction, 17th Match T20 World Cup, 25th October 2021
Afghanistan has an excellent opportunity to kick off its campaign with a win. They are up against Scotland who has not beaten them in any of the last 5 T20 matches. Above all, Afghanistan is playing on the same turf as Sharjah is the same ground where they organize their T20 league and play most of their home matches in these conditions only.
All eyes will be on Afghanistan’s spin trio of Mujeeb, Rashid, and Nabi who all were together in the Sunrisers team in IPL but only Rashid played the majority of matches. Sharjah pitch is likely to favor slow bowlers which could make Afghanistan a really hard team to beat. In fact, their batting also has been good in recent times and they showcased glimpses of destruction in Practice matches.
Scotland was terrific in qualifying matches but the real test starts from super 12 for the Scottish side. They are up against a quality side like Afghanistan who had the upper hand over them in recent times. The last round’s performance will give them morale boost but matches start from zeros always and Sharjah’s wicket is different from Oman’s conditions and Scotland will have to adapt quickly.
Scotland has some quality seam bowlers in their armory and if they put Afghanistan’s batsman under pressure in powerplay overs and could exploit the inexperience of Afghanistan’s batsman. Bradley Wheal was especially remarkable with the new ball for Scotland and if continues his form then Hazratullah Zazai and Mohammad Shahzad will have a hard time dealing with the new ball.
Popular Betting Odds For AFG vs SCO, 17th Match T20 World Cup, Betmaster Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman from Afghanistan – Rahmanullah Gurbaz (4.2 odds)
Rahmanullah Gurbaz is a rising sensation of Afghanistan and has shown lots of promise in the short span of his career only. His innings against West Indies in Lucknow was especially remarkable and made his name around the world cricket. He was recently part of the Multan Sultan team in the Pakistan Super League and will look to use that experience in this high-pressure World T20. Rahmanullah is an exciting prospect and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Afghanistan.
Top Batsman from Scotland – Kyle Coetzer (3.55 odds)
Kyle Coetzer has looked off-color in all matches so far in World T20 but this match will be tailor-made for him to get into action. Coetzer is the captain of the team and has been a consistent performer for them over the years. He has struggled against swinging deliveries in powerplay overs but Sharjah pitch is unlikely to offer that kind of swing. Sharjah pitch is tailor-made for batting and he could be a game-changer for Scotland in this match. He can give you big returns from this match and is our pick for best batsman from Scotland.
Top Bowler from Afghanistan – Mohammad Nabi (5.3 odds)
Mohammad Nabi was really in practice games and looked on top of his game. He opened the bowling against the West Indies and dismantled their top order by picking three crucial wickets. He is a conventional off-spinner and bowls slow in the air which gives him extra turn from wickets. Sharjah pitch is likely to be good for batting but spinners will have a big role to play in middle overs and Nabi could be a trump card for Afghanistan. He can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Afghanistan.
Top Bowler from Scotland– Safyaan Sharif (3.95 odds)
Safyaan Sharif is the most experienced bowler in the Scotland squad and will look to use his all experience in this pressure game to produce a performance in this match. He was used in one change by Kyle Coetzer in the first two matches but is likely to take the new ball after his impressive bowling against Oman. Sharif is a hit the deck hard bowler and could generate extra assistance from pitch if he gets into his rhythm. Safyaan Sharif can give good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Scotland.
