  • Zimbabwe has a 2-1 win-loss record over Scotland in the T20I format.

Zimbabwe will the match and series 2-1

Tournament: Zimbabwe tour of Scotland, 2021 | Format: T20 | Venue: Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh, Scotland | Toss: To Bat

Bet Now

Zimbabwe won the second match and levelled the series 1-1 and set up a perfect decider on Sunday. Scotland will play their last T20I match before the T20I World Cup matches and will be eager to win and go into the tournament with a series win. They play very less T20I bi-lateral series and a series win will be their perfect boost for the world cup. Zimbabwe has lost their last 6 T20I series and will be looking forward to end their losing streak with a series win in this match. And this will be their first bi-lateral series win ignoring the one-off T20I matches.

Scotland Preview

Scotland top order stumbled to 16/4 inside the power play before the duo of Richie Berrington (42 runs) and Mathew Cross (42 runs) rebuild the innings with a 75-run partnership. Michael Leask tried his best with a cameo of 25 runs but they lost 4 wickets in the 4 balls to lose the match by 10 runs.

Scotland bowlers took 3 wickets in the power play and kept the run arte under check for most part of the match. Evans, Mark Watt, Gavin main and Leask took one wicket each in the match and kept their economy rate below 7 RPO as they restricted the opposition to 136/5 in 20 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Richie Berrington – Berrington continued his match winning 82 with a crucial 42 runs that rebuild their innings in the last match. We expect him to play a big knock in this match too.

Michael Leask – Leask had a fairly good all-round match scoring 25 runs with bat and bowling figures of 4-0-23-1. His presence with the bat and ball is adding good depth and balance to their team.

Scotland Predicted Playing XI:

George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Ollie Hairs/Craig Wallace, Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Matthew Cross (wk), Michael Leask, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, Gavin Main, Alasdair Evans

Scotland Actual Playing XI:

Calum MacLeod, Kyle Coetzer, Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Safyaan Sharif, George Munsey, Alasdair Evans, Ollie Hairs, Michael Leask

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe skipper Craig Ervine (30 runs) and Sean Williams (60 runs) rebuild their team from 20/3 to 91/4. Ryan Burl played a small cameo of 13 runs as they ended with a par 136/5 in their 20 overs. Zimbabwe batting unit is ligtly inconsistent at the top with openers yet to make a double digit score so far. 

Their bowling attack performed well as a unit as they bowled out the opposition for 126 runs. Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarva, and Wellington Masakadza took 2 wickets each while Luke Jongwe and Sean Williams chipped in with a wicket each. Masakadza defended 12 runs in final overs as 4 wickets fell of 4 consecutive balls in the last over.

Top players to bet on:

Richard Ngarva – Ngarva has bowling figures of 4-0-20-1 & 4-1-13-2 in the 2 matches played so far leading their bowling from the front in the power play. We expect him to give crucial breakthroughs early in this match too.

Sean Williams – Williams was the Man of the match in the last match for his all-round performance of 60 runs and bowling figures of 3-0-23-1. He can be a game changer with the bat and all for the team.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Regis Chakabva (wk), Craig Ervine (c), Sean Williams, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Tendai Chatara, Richard Ngarava

Weather Conditions

Edinburgh will have dark and gloomy weather with cool breeze with 60% chances of rain possibility. We expect to have some small interruptions in this match due to weather conditions.

Venue Details

Edinburgh pitch was a bit tacky and the batsmen never found fluency in this track as they struggled their way to modest scores and we expect the pitch to slow down as the game progresses. We expect 140-150 runs to be scored in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting won both the matches as they defended scores in the range of 140 runs successfully. Both captains will look to continue this trend if they win the toss.

Zimbabwe is the experienced of the 2 teams playing more international matches and Scotland has played well recently in the T20I qualifiers. Scotland batting relies heavily on Richie Berrington and their top order needs to step up to put big scores on board. Zimbabwe bowlers bowled well as unit in the last match and their batters stood up at crucial time as they levelled the series. We expect Zimbabwe to win this match and series 2-1 to register their maiden multi-game bi-lateral T20I series.

Zimbabwe will the match and series 2-1
