Betting Tips
  • Rohit Sharma smashed 74 runs from 47 balls against Afghanistan and will no doubt be on the attack in this match as well. He is well worth backing as India’s highest run scorer against Scotland. Jasprit Bumrah took 1-25 on Wednesday and will be extremely hard for Scotland’s batters to face. He is a strong choice for India’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • All-rounder Michael Leask has scored 44 and 42 not-out in his last two innings in the competition and is our pick for Scotland’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Mark Watt’s left-arm orthodox bowling continues to cause all batters problems. Watt is our recommendation for Scotland’s top wicket taker against India.
  • There are plenty of candidates from India for the Player of The Match Award but we expect Rohit Sharma to produce the goods and take the award.

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

India and Scotland meet on Friday evening at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. India got their first win of the 2021 T20 World Cup with a 66 run victory over Afghanistan on Wednesday. Scotland have lost all three of their games in the Super 12 stage so far but ran New Zealand close on Wednesday. Read on as we preview this game. The Group 2 match begins at 18:00 local time.

India were on the verge of being eliminated from the tournament before their statement victory over Afghanistan on Wednesday. They have turned the tide and will be looking to hand out another thrashing in this game. 

After putting in sub-par batting performances against Afghanistan and Namibia, Scotland were back to their battling best against New Zealand. If they can perform in a similar manner against India then they could cause problems.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Varun Chakravarthy missed India’s big win over Afghanistan with a left-calf muscle injury. Although he had not bowled too badly in the two previous games, Ravi Ashwin came in and took 2-14 from 4 overs. We expect to see India retain the same XI for this match.

IND Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma- the big hitting opener was back to his sublime best against Afghanistan. He struck 8 fours and 3 sixes in his 47-ball innings.
  • Rishabh Pant- the attacking wicket-keeper showed his ability with an unbeaten 27 from 13 balls on Wednesday which included 3 sixes.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- the pace bowler was the only India player to have taken a wicket in their opening two games. He took the crucial wicket of Hazratullah Zazai against Afghanistan.

IND Team Form

After extending their losing streak to four games, India finally got a victory against Afghanistan. The performance in the win showed they are to be taken seriously in this tournament.

Scotland Team News & Playing 11

SCO Team News

Alasdair Evans came into the Scotland side for his first Super 12 stage appearance against New Zealand at the expense of Josh Davey. However, Evans conceded 48 runs and we expect to see Davey back for this game. Captain Kyle Coetzer also returned to the side after recovering from his hand injury.

SCO Key Players

  • George Munsey- the left-handed opening batter hit 22 from 18 balls against New Zealand before a spectacular catch from Tim Southee saw him dismissed.
  • Richard Berrington- the experienced batter bounced back from successive ducks to make 20 against New Zealand. He always scores his runs at a rapid rate.
  • Mark Watt- the left-arm spinner caused New Zealand plenty of problems on Wednesday, conceded only 13 runs and took the wicket of Devon Conway.
