Pakistan Vs Scotland: Players To Watch Out For
Pakistan is the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. In the last couple of years, they have improved themselves drastically. They are a strong team, and cricket pundits are expecting Pakistan will win the tournament. Pakistan is at the top of group 2 with 8 points in four matches. They are the only team in the whole tournament to remain undefeated. Their captain, Babar Azam, is the best batsman in the T20 format. Other than him, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Fakhar Zama, etc., are following the captain’s footsteps to lead the team to success.
It is already mentioned above that Scotland is new to cricket. They lack the most important thing of cricket, which is experience. But after the tournament is over, they will fulfill that criterion and come back even stronger. Their performance has been quite disappointing, and are the worst team of the whole tournament. They are in the last position of group 2. They played four matches and lost in every one of those matches. Scotland has weak batting and bowling lineup. Even Afghanistan defeated them with a margin of 130 runs. Scotland does have good players like Michael Leask, George Munsey, and Chris Greaves, who just need to be a little bit polished.
Pakistan – Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
Scotland – George Munsey, Matthew Cross, Calum MacLeod, Richie Berrington, Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Brad Wheal
Pakistan and Scotland: Match Preview And Prediction
The strongest team of the tournament is going to face the weakest team of the tournament. Pakistan will wish to keep its undefeated streak alive and win the tournament. A blow at this stage might deal damage to their motivation. It is exactly what Scotland will try to do. They were overpowered by all the other teams but will like to register at least one win in the tournament. And the best way to do this is to defeat the strongest team in the tournament. But my prediction is that Pakistan will win this match and extend their undefeated streak. But we cannot be certain of it. If history has taught us anything, then that is never to underestimate any opponent.
