ICC T20I World Cup is going at a full tilt with teams fighting hard for the spots in the semi-finals. England and Pakistan are running too far ahead of the other teams and look all set to qualify for the semi-finals from their respective groups. New Zealand after their defeat to Pakistan made a strong comeback against one of the favorites India in their next game. They will look to continue their winning streak so as to avoid any chance for other teams in the group. Scotland succumbed to losses in their first two super-12 games and will look to win this match to stay in contention.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand batsmen chased down a paltry total of 111 runs with ease in just 14.3 overs. Daryl Mitchell played a superb knock scoring 49 runs off 35 balls with 4 boundaries and 3 sixes. Kane Williamson (33* runs) and Martin Guptill (20 runs) played cameos to keep the scoreboard moving and build vital partnerships.

New Zealand never gave any breathing space for a strong Indian unit. Ish Sodhi and Trent Boult took 5 wickets between them in the match. Tim Southee and Adam Milne picked up a wicket each and never allowed any easy runs. Mitchell Santner was phenomenal with the figures of 4-0-15-0.

Top players to bet on:

Kane Williamson – Williamson has scores of 25 & 33* in the 2 matches and he is expected to steer their batting innings playing the anchor role. He can score with ease once he is set and take them to a big knock.

Ish Sodhi – Ish Sodhi has bowling figures of 2/28 & 2/17 in the two matches and all his 4 wickets has been of top order batsmen. His ability to take important wickets will be a big X-factor for his team bowling department.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Kane Williamson (c), James Neesham, Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult

Scotland Preview

Scotland suffered a massive collapse as they were reduced to 18/4 in the power play. Michael Leask (44 runs), Chris Greaves (25 runs), and Mathew Cross (19 runs) fought hard to take them to a respectable score of 109/8. They were bundled out for just 60 runs in their first match against Afghanistan.

Scotland bowlers put on a great showing in defending the low target to lose in a last over contest. Bradley Wheal, Chris Greaves, Safyaan Sharif, and Mark Watt picked up a wicket each and gave runs at less than 6 RPO. Michael Leask took 2wickets in the match in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Michael Leask – Leask had a good all-round performance scoring 44 runs and then bowling figures with 2-0-12-2. We expect him to come good in this match too with bat and ball.

Mark Watt – Mark Watt has bowling figures of 1/23 & 1/22 in the 2 matches and we expect him to play a crucial role in the middle phase of the game.

Scotland Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Dubai will have bright sunny weather with early 30 degrees on the match day. We expect no weather disturbances and dew might play a big role in the match.

Venue Details

Dubai has some grass cover on the pitch and the ball might swing and seam early on in the match. Batsmen will find it harder to score runs at the ball stops on them. We expect scores in the range of 140-150 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have won all the 7 matches played here and both teams will look to chase down the total in this match. Bowling becomes difficult with dew factor in the second innings.

New Zealand is one of the top teams and they played brilliantly in the last match and were spot on with their execution in the bowling department. They will look to continue their winning streak and not give any sniff to other teams for the semi-final spot. Scotland must play their best game to give tough competition to quality sides like New Zealand. Their batting looked out of sorts in both the matches. We expect New Zealand to win this match owing to their quality players and experience.

NEW ZEALAND will win the match
