Team India just kept its hopes alive in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 with a big win against Afghanistan in the last game. It was a good show by the side in the last game and they would look to continue with the same momentum. Scotland went down against New Zealand in the last game, and they are out of contention for a place in the next round. 

Scotland has lost all the three games the side has played and they are down on confidence. Most of their players lack the experience of performing well against the big sides. Indians have finally found their rhythm back and the side would like to drive forward the momentum. It would be interesting to see how Scotland approach this game after their positive show against New Zealand. 

India Preview

Virat Kohli’s side had finally something to cheer about as they won the last game against Afghanistan by 66 runs. It was a perfect show with the bat and the ball, and the side would be happy to have improved its run rate and brought it to positive. They would focus on winning the next game by a big margin as this would keep their hopes alive for a place in the next round.  

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul set up 140 runs stand in the last game, and they would look to start from where they left. Suryakumar Yadav and Kohli add solidity to this line-up and a good show would be expected from them here. In Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja the side has great hitters of the ball down the order, and they would look to offer a good start here. 

The new ball pair of Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah did well in the last game and the side would like to see early wickets from them here. In the middle overs, it was good to see the pair of Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin do well and make good use of the conditions. With Pandya and Shardul Thakur in the side they would be confident with their bowling attack. 

India Predicted Playing XI:

Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya

Scotland Preview

Kyle Coetzer’s side hasn’t won a game in the Super 12 and they are out of contention for the next round. However, the side can be proud of its efforts in the last game against New Zealand where they pushed the Kiwis but fell 17-runs short of the victory target. As they take on the Indian side Coetzer would like his side to put in their best performance and compete hard. 

George Munsey and Coetzer got their starts in the last game and the side would need them to convert them into big scores. In the middle order, the side would need quick runs from Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Calum MacLeod. In Michael Leask and Chris Greaves, the side has good hitters of the ball, and they would have to use the willow well against India’s strong bowling attack. 

Their bowling attack went for runs in the last game and they can least afford it here. Bradley Wheal and Safyaan Sharif must make good use of the new ball. Mark Watt has impressed in the last few games and the side would like to see a good show from him. Chris Greaves and  Leask have to bowl tight spells in the middle overs for the side to fight it hard against Indians.

Scotland Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

The conditions are expected to be warm and humid in Dubai on November 05. The wicket has become better for batting, and we have seen big scores in the last few games. The ball is coming onto the bat nicely allowing batsmen to play their strokes. The side that bats first here would like to put 170 runs or more on the board. 

Venue Details

Dubai International Cricket Stadium is a large ground, but it has a flat wicket and a fast outfield. Batsmen have scored lots of runs here as the ball comes onto the bat nicely. Fast bowlers with pace have done well on this surface but it is the spinners who enjoy the best performance here as the ball turns sharply.

Toss: To Bowl

Eight games have been played at this venue and only once has the side won the game batting first. It has been an excellent venue to chase scores as the wicket is at its best in the second innings. The side winning the toss here isn’t likely to have any hesitation in bowling first in the game.

Scotland has played to the best of its abilities, but it hasn’t been enough. The side has got exposed to top-quality cricket in this tournament. Their batsmen have failed to score at a good pace, and this is something they would have to improve in this game. Indians finally have found their mojo and the side would be confident coming into this contest. They have a strong batting line-up, and this would make them favorites to win here.
