Scotland vs Afghanistan Match Odds by BetRally & Betway











Kyle Coetzer the Scotland skipper would be been very upset with the first game of the two-match series being washed away. The side has already been struggling to play the bigger sides due to the scheduling that often denies smaller teams the chance to compete against the bigger teams. With the first match being washed away the skipper would be hoping to win the second one and the series along with it. Coetzer would know that Afghanistan is likely to play extremely tough cricket in the next game and his players would have to rise up to the challenge to defeat them.

It is the Top 3 that makes the Scotland batting line-up strong. Skipper Kyle Coetzer and Matthew Cross have settled well in the openers’ slot and Calum MacLeod has been taking giant strides over the last few years. The middle order has some seasoned players for the side with Richie Berrington and George Munsey having good hitting abilities. Their lower order has also been contributing on a regular basis which adds strength to the side. The side would need its bowlers to perform well if they are to do well in the next game. Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif and Mark Watt will need to pick up early wickets with the new balls. Michael Leask and Alasdair Evans will need to offer perfect support during the middle overs.


Gulbadin Naib would count the last game’s wash out as a missed opportunity in their World Cup 2019 preparations. For Naib it will be his first game as newly captain of the side and he would be looking to make a perfect start and prepare well for the mega event at the end of the month. He would have in mind the fact that his main weapon the spinners may not get the kind of bargain they are used to on these seam friendly track. He would thus want his fast bowlers and batsmen to do well in the upcoming game to win it for the side.

They have a strong batting line-up with Mohammad Shahzad and Hashmatullah Shahidi at the top. Both of them will be looking to provide the perfect start to the side. The middle order is packed with seasoned players that include the likes of Asghar Afghan, Samiullah Shenwari, Mohammad Naib and Hazratullah Zazai. Rashid Khan also has good hitting abilities which make their batting very strong. As far as bowling is concerned the team would rely on Dawlat Zadran to pick early wickets. It will be interesting to see how the spin trio of Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi after the pitch has soaked in lot of moisture due to rains.

Our Prediction for Scotland vs Afghanistan, 2nd ODI


Afghanistan shall win the 2nd ODI

The first game of the two-match series at Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh was washed away by rain and now both the side would be looking to win the next one and bag the series. Scotland would have the advantage of bowling on a track that would assist the fast bowlers due to overcast weather conditions. Afghan team that has taken giant strides in the last two years aren’t going to make it easy for the hosts given the kind of performances we have seen from them with good strength in their batting and bowling. It is expected to be a cracker of a contest in the next game.

Afghanistan side has far more experience as compared to Scotland and this might give them slight edge going into this game.
