ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers Play-Off 3 Squad Comparison


Scotland won 4 out of 6 matches in the league stage defeating the top team like Papua New Guinea while losing to Namibia. Scotland’s form in the last 3 matches has been L W L. In the two losses, Scotland was up against Netherlands and Namibia. Batting first against the Netherlands, Scotland scored 130 while in the match against Namibia, Scotland finished 135-8 chasing 160 runs. The openers failed to score big in both these matches while Matthew Cross (52) at number 3 was a top batsman in the last match. While in the chase against Namibia, Richie Berrington and Calum McCleod were the only batsmen to score over 20 runs.

The consistent aspect of Scotland’s play was its bowling. Scotland bowlers picked 6 wickets in both the losses. Mark Watt was top bowler with 3 for 18 defending 130 runs, while Hamza Tahir was the most economical bowler with 1 for 18 in 4 overs against Namibia. Scotland’s best batting performance in recent times came against Bermuda. George Munsey and Calum MacLeod scored fifties while Richie Berrington stayed unbeaten on 34 off 19 balls. In addition, Mark Watt, Hamza Tahir, and Safyaan Sharif picked 2 wickets each and restricted Bermuda to 158-8.

United Arab Emirates

Inconsistency has been the characteristic feature of UAE’s form in this tournament. Their form in all the matches they’ve played so far including the 1st play-off has been L W W L W W L. Their losses came against the Netherlands, Jersey, and Oman. Their last two losses were marked by a disappointing batting performance. While they failed to chase 148 against Jersey and were all out for 112 runs, UAE’s innings finished with 80-9 batting first in the 1st play-off.

While UAE successfully chased 112 runs against Nigeria, they lost 5 wickets on the way. Rohan Mustafa and Chirag Suri have consistently failed to make any significant contributions at the top, for UAE. In their win against Canada, UAE managed to put 154 runs batting first riding on Muhammad Usman’s inning of unbeaten 89 runs. UAE will find themselves vulnerable against Scotland’s bowling attack. While UAE’s batting line-up has reached it’s lowest point in the tournament, Scotland would be keen on making the most of this opportunity. Waheed Ahmed, Rohan Mustafa, and Zahoor Khan will be crucial in the bowling attack for UAE. Their spells would either make or break the winning chances of UAE in the 3rd playoff of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers 2019.

Our Prediction for Scotland vs United Arab Emirates

Scotland is favorite to win the match

While UAE’s struggling on the batting front, Scotland’s bowling has been the only consistent aspect in their game. UAE has a strong bowling attack and has proved its worth early in the tournament, going up against Scotland, they would need a good batting performance as well. Scotland has more than just a few good reliable batsmen in the middle to steady their innings after a collapse while UAE’s had a few batsmen scoring most of the runs. The top betting sites in India have Scotland as favorite to win this match while it may not be as clear as indicated by odds of 1.49 and UAE would likely bounce back with their bowling attack.
