Australia vs Scotland Prediction – T20 World Cup 2024

AUS vs SCO Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Match 35 of the 2024 T20 World Cup sees Australia take on Scotland on Saturday evening in St Lucia. Read on as we preview this match. Australia have played three and won three so far in Group B with Scotland winning two alongside one no-result. The game begins at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet at 20:30 local time.

Australia currently hold the 50-over Cricket World Cup trophy and their form so far in this tournament gives them plenty of encouragement that they could hold both trophies in a couple of week’s time. They won’t take Scotland lightly and we expect another strong performance from Australia.

Scotland have been one of the major success stories so far in the 2024 T20 World Cup and their record could have been even better if the rain had not arrived in Bridgetown against England earlier this month. We can expect them to attack and not be overawed against this strong Australia side.

AUS vs SCO Match Toss Prediction

Four out of the last five T20Is at this venue have been won by the team batting first and, even though there has not been a T20I here for three years, we expect both captains to choose to bat first

AUS vs SCO Pitch Report

There were over 380 runs and 17 wickets in the last T20I at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium so we can expect plenty of action in this game. The surface will offer good pace and carry and a par score is likely to be approaching 200.

St Lucia Weather Report

This looks like being a warm evening in Gros Islet with the temperature above 27 degrees throughout this game. We are not expecting to see any rain interruptions.

Nathan Ellis came into the XI for the game against Namibia with Mitchell Starc dropping out. We expect Starc to be given further time of rest before being brought back for the Super Eights stage. There are no other injury worries or niggles in the squad.

  • David Warner- the aggressive left-handed opener has already made 115 runs in this T20 World Cup 2024 and they have come quickly with his strike-rate at 153.33.
  • Travis Head- the all-format top order batter is averaging 40 after three innings so far in the tournament. He will go on the attack from ball one in this match.
  • Adam Zampa- the spin bowler is in excellent form. He is averaging a wicket every nine balls in this campaign and his overs are costing only 5.33 runs on average.
  • Josh Hazlewood- the tall right-arm pace bowler was at the top of his game during the match against Namibia when he took 2/18.

Safyaan Sharif was brought into Scotland’s side for their game against Oman and he did well picking up two wickets. He replaced Brad Currie in the team and we expect him to remain on the sidelines ahead of this match against Australia in Gros Islet.

SCO Key Players

  • George Munsey- the opener hit two fours and four sixes in the win over Oman and he is averaging over 31 with a strike-rate of 143.24 in T20Is.
  • Brandon McMullen- it was a Player of the Match performance at number three from the 24 year old batting all-rounder in the last game when he struck 61 not out from 31 balls.
  • Brad Wheal- the right-arm medium fast bowler not only picked up a wicket against Oman but conceded just 19 runs from his four overs.
  • Mark Watt- the reliable left-arm spinner continues to pick up wickets on a regular basis and captain Richie Berrington will not be afraid of bowling him during any period of the game.

Scotland are unbeaten at this tournament so far and are looking for their third successive win.

Scotland Predicted Playing 11

George Munsey, Michael Jones, Brandon McMullen, Richie Berrington (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif

Who will win Australia vs Scotland Match?

Scotland have caught the eye in this tournament and they seem to have real self-belief in their group. However, we still expect this strong and experienced Australian squad to come out as the top side.

🏆 Australia vs Scotland Prediction

Australia have got off to very strong starts in all of their games so far in the tournament but so have Scotland so it could be a very interesting first six overs in this match. Scotland have batting power but they will be tested against this Australian bowling attack. Our prediction is for a closer contest than Australia have had so far, but we still are predicting a comfortable win for Mitchell Marsh’s side.
