SCO vs NZ Betting Tips

  • George Munsey hit a six and two fours in the first IT20 and is the most feared batter in Scotland’s line-up. He is our top choice for Scotland’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Hamza Tahir is a strong spinner but also benefits from picking up wickets as the batters target the short boundaries at this ground. He is our tip for Scotland’s top wicket taker on Friday.
  • Martin Guptill continues to play in an attacking manner at the top of the order and he hit 40 runs in the opening game of the series. The 35 year old is our pick for New Zealand’s highest run scorer in what is likely to be his final IT20 appearance in the country. Lockie Ferguson cranked up the pace on Wednesday but we expect him to prioritise accuracy in this match. We expect him to be New Zealand’s top wicket taker in the second IT20.
  • For all of Scotland’s stroke-makers, the top order for New Zealand is far more experienced at this level. Finn Allen is our prediction to hit the most sixes in this clash.

SCO vs NZ 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The second and final IT20 between Scotland and New Zealand takes place at The Grange Club, Edinburgh on Friday afternoon. The visitors were too good for the hosts in the first game of the series on Wednesday, coming away with a 68 run victory after posting an imposing total of 225-5. Read on as we preview this IT20. The game gets underway at 14:30 local time.

Scotland have lost every game in this format since beating Oman back in October in the 2021 T20 World Cup. It would be a huge upset if they were to come out on top in this fixture.

New Zealand do not have four or five of their first choice players and still romped to a victory on Wednesday. They are a few levels above Scotland and we expect it to be evident again on Friday.

SCO vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

Scotland won the toss and chose to field first on Wednesday. We expect both teams to choose to bat first if they win the toss in this match.

SCO vs NZ Pitch Report

The short boundaries helped the batters on both sides in the opening game and we expect the same in this match. Expect Ish Sodhi and other spinners to make the most of the variable bounce and turn on offer.

Weather Report

Dry and pleasant with a top temperature of 21 degrees in Scotland for this match.

Scotland Team News & Playing 11

SCO Team News

Although the bowlers took a hammering in front of their own fans on Wednesday, there would be no benefit in hiding the same players from this game with the next T20 World Cup less than three months away. Likewise, with no players unavailable, we expect the batting line-up to also be unchanged.

SCO Key Players

  • George Munsey - the 29 year old left-hander is often accused of failing to turn it on against the top level bowlers. He will want to build on his 29 runs from 29 balls from the first game in this fixture.
  • Chris Greaves - the leg-spinner is a handy all-rounder and is one of those players who will always play in the same manner irrespective of the opponents. He hit four boundaries at this ground on Wednesday.
  • Hamza Tahir - the left-arm spinner dismissed the dangerous Glenn Phillips in the opening IT20. He knows this ground well and kept his economy rate below 10.00 in spite of the short boundaries.

SCO Team Form

Scotland have lost their last six matches in IT20 cricket. However, they are constantly playing the top teams which can only be good for their development.

Scotland Predicted Playing 11

George Munsey, Callum LacLeod, Ollie Hairs, Matthew Cross (wk), Richie Berrington (c), Safyaan Sharif, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Hamza Tahir

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

We expect to see the Black Caps name an unchanged XI for this second and final IT20. Although New Zealand regularly like to give players an opportunity, we expect any experimentation to take place ahead of the ODI game later in the month. There are no major injury worries for the visitors.

NZ Key Players

  • Martin Guptill - the experienced right handed opener looked like he was coming into strong form in Edinburgh in the first game of the series. He struck four fours and two sixes from his 31 balls.
  • Finn Allen - the 23 year old opener took the Player of The Match Award on Wednesday after striking 101 runs from 56 balls. He will be delighted to walk back out to the middle on the same pitch for this clash.
  • Lockie Ferguson - the quick bowler will have been disappointed with his return of 1-35 from four overs in the first IT20. However, he is a highly competitive individual who will want to boost his performance in this game.

NZ Team Form

The beaten finalists from the 2021 T20 World Cup are now targeting their fifth successive victory in this format.

Scotland vs New Zealand Head to Head

Although Scotland pushed New Zealand close and gave them some scares during their clash in the 2021 T20 World Cup, the margin of victory on Wednesday was what the Black Caps would have expected. They have now won three out of three against Scotland.

Finn Allen was a class apart from all other batters in the opening game. We should remember that the New Zealand batters have experience of the top franchise leagues whereas the Scottish players do not.

We are backing Mark Watt, Hamza Tahir and Chris Sole with the ball for Scotland. Watt had Finn Allen stumped in the opening match of the series and will target another big scalp in this clash.

🏆 Scotland vs New Zealand Prediction

The hosts were never in the opening contest of the series after Martin Guptill and Finn Allen put on 85 for the first wicket. Irrespective of who bats or bowls first, we predict that New Zealand will be on top from the start again. We expect to see another victory for the Black Caps.
