Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 41: Pakistan vs Scotland

In a dead rubber encounter, Pakistan will play Scotland in the penultimate Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan is familiar with the conditions in the UAE and has taken advantage of them more than any other team in the T20 World Cup. They have qualified for the semi-finals as the first team from Group 2. Pakistan defeated India and New Zealand in their first two matches to secure their spot.

On the other hand, Scotland has lost all four of their Super 12 matches and currently sits at the bottom of Group 2 with no points. They were underwhelming with the bat against India, and it cost them dearly as they lost by 8 wickets with 81 balls to spare.

 

Weather
The weather in Sharjah will be between 29 and 27 degrees during this evening match, with a clear sky.

 

Pitch
The Sharjah pitch has favoured spin bowlers in the past. They are, however, at risk of going for a lot of runs with the short boundaries available. On a slow turning pitch, a par score will be no more than 150.

The evidence from Pakistan’s previous games in the Super 12 stage points to a decisive win in this encounter. Scotland has looked good with the bat on several occasions, but their top order has failed to deliver enough runs far too often. We predict Pakistan will win this game easily.
