Afghanistan

Afghanistan will lock horns with Scotland in the match of their campaign. There are a lot of expectations from the Afghani side because of the quality on their side. They played brilliantly against the West Indies in the practice game and will look to continue in the same old fashion. Afghanistan has come a long way since their last appearance in the World T20 in 2016 and this time will look to leave a big mark at this center stage.

Rashid Khan will be their trump card and it will be interesting to see where Mohammed Nabi will utilize him. In practice games, he bowled many overs in death overs which is likely to be the template for the whole tournament. Afghanistan has an upper hand over Scotland and this will be the best opportunity for Afghanistan to put its first points on the table.

Scotland

Scotland shocked everyone through their tremendous performance in qualifiers. They defeated Bangladesh in the very first game and dismantled Oman in their last game. Despite being an outside sub-Continental side, Scottish players have brilliantly adapted to these hot and humid conditions. They are underdogs for this match but could surprise Afghanistan like they surprised Bangladesh.

They have a perfect record so far in the tournament and Sharjah’s pitch is likely to be the same as Omani conditions. It will be brilliant conditions for batting and if Scotland takes care of Afghanistan’s spinners then Scottish bowlers have all the skills to take care of fragile Afghanistan’s batting and script another refreshing win in the tournament.

AFG vs SCO – Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Afghanistan is expected to win the match against Scotland 

KhelTalk experts feel Afghanistan will win against Scotland in this match. Afghanistan will be clear favorites for this match because of the threat they possess with their spinners. Their batting also has performed well in recent times which is a good sign going into the World cup.

Pitch is going to be good for batting which is a perfect sign for Afghanistan. On the other hand, Scotland is also coming off excellent form but might struggle against the quality bowling lineup of Afghanistan. We think Afghanistan will win this match.

Top Batsman from Afghanistan – Hazratullah Zazai (3.60 odds)

Zazai smoked 4 huge sixes in the last practice match against the West Indies and looked in some extremely hot touch. He was also brilliant for Peshawar Zalmi in Pakistan Super League in similar conditions which will give him a huge boost. He is a hard-hitting opener and conditions are tailor-made for him and if he settles down then he might take the game away from Scotland in powerplay only. He is our pick for best batsman from Afghanistan.

Top Batsman from Scotland – Munsey (3.75 odds)

Munsey was unlucky in the qualifying round and failed to score any big scores. He looked good at the crease and played some good cricketing shots but was unlucky to get out at times. He is going to be Key batsman for Scotland in these super 12 matches and needs to be in his top-notch form if Scotland wants to leave a mark in this round. Munsey is an experienced campaigner and can have a big impact in this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Scotland.

Top Bowler from Afghanistan  – Rashid Khan (3.00 odds)

All eyes will be on Rashid Khan throughout this tournament especially after his controversial captaincy resignation just before the mega event. He is arguably the best T20 bowler and batsman yet to find the antidote of his googly.

Rashid Khan’s rise in international cricket started through this tournament only in 2016 and this time around, he will look to leave a special mark. He is always going to give you big returns and against Scotland, it will be a golden opportunity for Rashid to draw the first blood. He is our pick for best bowler from Afghanistan.

Top Bowler from Scotland – Bradley Wheal (4.33 odds)

Bradley Wheal was instrumental for Scotland in the qualifying round and his performance against Bangladesh was especially remarkable. He took 3 wickets against them and dismantled their top order. The right-arm fast is really furious with the new ball and can be a force to reckon with in powerplay.

Sharjah usually offers something to bowlers in initial overs and if Wheal gets early wickets it could be Scotland’s game. He was really impressive in the last round and can again be a game-changer. Bradley Wheal is our pick for best bowler from Scotland.
