UAE Team News

UAE picked up a crushing eight wicket win over Scotland in the first game. Scotland could only score 147-8 in 20 overs on a sluggish wicket and UAE cruised to a win by eight wickets in the 18th over. UAE would want to win the second game and seal the series.

Muhammad Waseem, Alishan Sharafu and Tanish Suri will be key batters. Waseem once again batted well and scored a brisk 68 in 43 balls to hand an impressive win for UAE. Tanish Suri also had a good outing with the bat and made 37 runs. Alishan Sharafu scored 32 runs. All are natural strikers of a cricket ball and have a sound technique.

Junaid Siddique, Aayan Khan and Basil Hameed can be backed as top bowlers. The bowlers delivered a collective show to rattle the Scottish batting lineup. Junaid Siddique picked four wickets in the first game while Basil Hameed and Aayan Khan bagged two wickets each. Both had economy rate of less than 7.

SCO Team News

Scotland will be upset with how they fared in the first T20I but the defeat should not demoralize them as Scotland a top T20I team and can beat any team on their day. The only concern for them will be to score runs against UAE spinners who can create problems on slow tracks.

SCO Team Batting

Richie Berrington, Matt Cross and George Munsey can be backed as key batters. Munsey has been exceptional on the tour and scored yet another half century. He made 75 in 49 balls but did not get support from other end. The form of Berrington and Cross has not been great but Scotland rest a lot of hopes on the senior pros. Both Berrington and Cross have to figure out a way to score runs.

SCO Team Bowling

Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt and Michael Leask will be the top bowlers for Scotland. The bowlers did not have a great outing in the first game but they are Scotland’s best bowlers and will eye a strong return in the second game.

SCO Team Form

Scotland have not played T20I cricket recently and the rustiness was clearly visible in the first game. Having played a game, expect a better show from Scotland.

Scotland Predicted Playing 11

Matthew Cross, Brandon McMullen, George Munsey, Richie Berrington (c), O Hairs, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Safyaan Sharif, Gavin Main, Jack Jarvis

🏆 UAE vs Scotland Prediction

It is a tough one to pick because UAE in home conditions can be a stiff opponent to beat, whereas, Scotland are a better T20I side. Given the conditions, where spinners got a lot of help in the first game, we are more inclined towards UAE as winners of the match. Scotland are not great players of spin and a good spell can trigger a collapse thus UAE seem to be a safe pick in the second game.
