Betting Tips
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz is an exciting young keeper-batsman at the top of the order for Afghanistan. He has three half-centuries in IT20s and is our tip for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Rashid Khan is one of the most talented spinners in world cricket. He is our recommendation for Afghanistan’s top wicket taker against Scotland.
  • Richard Berrington has impressed in the last two games of the 2021 T20 World Cup with scores of 70 and 31*. The experienced Scotsman is a strong choice for Scotland’s highest run scorer against Afghanistan. Josh Davey was extremely successful in Round 1, taking 8 wickets. He is well worth backing as Scotland’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • There are good players in both teams but Rashid Khan is one of the few world class players. He is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

Afghanistan vs Scotland Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2021

Afghanistan and Scotland meet in the Super 12 stage in the 2021 T20 World Cup on Monday evening in Sharjah. Afghanistan had their most successful T20 World Cup in India in 2016 when they reached the Super 10 stage. For Scotland, this will be their first appearance in the second round of a World Cup. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at 18:00 local time.

Afghanistan have progressed as a side, particularly in white ball cricket, since the last T20 World Cup. This will be their first appearance in the second round without having to qualify through the first phase.

Scotland have plenty of momentum after winning all three of their games in Group B. Although they will be underdogs, they will come into this game with a great deal of confidence.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11

AFG Team News

After reaching the second round in a T20 World Cup for the first time in 2016, there are high expectations on this exciting mix of experienced middle order batters and young players elsewhere. There have been no reports of injuries or illness within the squad.

AFG Key Players

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz- the young opening batter will be very aggressive at the top of the order and will look to take the fight to the Scotland bowlers.
  • Rashid Khan- the vastly experienced leg-spinner is still only 23 years old but already has 269 international wickets across all three formats.
  • Naveen-ul-Haq- the young pace bowler enjoyed a very successful season in the T20 Blast. Although his side Leicestershire did not make the knockout stage he still finished with the most wickets.

AFG Team Form

Afghanistan have looked very strong in their warm-up games and have won their last three IT20 matches.

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Usman Ghani, Najbullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (c), Asghar Afghan, Gulbadin Naib, Rashid Khan, Karim Janat, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq

Scotland Team News & Playing 11

SCO Team News

Scotland’s first two games in the Super 12 stage are against Afghanistan and Namibia, arguably their two weakest opponents in the group. With a squad reporting no injuries from the first round and riding high in confidence, they will be able to select their best XI for this match.

SCO Key Players

  • Richard Berrington- the experienced batter has scored a combined 101 runs over the last two games. He hit 3 sixes in his 31 not out against Oman.
  • Chris Greaves- the leg spinner began the tournament with a crucial 45 and 2-19 against Bangladesh. He will enjoy the bowling conditions in Sharjah.
  • Josh Davey- the pitch in Sharjah may suit some of the other slower bowlers more but expect Davey to produce some variations and continue his good form in the competition

SCO Team Form

After opening up their tournament with a shock win over Bangladesh, Scotland made light work of PNG and Oman. They have won four of their last five IT20 matches.

Scotland Predicted Playing 11

George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Richard Berrington, Calum Macleod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Brad Wheal
