Match Details

Match: Pakistan vs Scotland match 41, WC T20

Date – 7th November 2021

Time: 07:30 PM IST

Pitch Report

The Sharjah surface has a reputation for favoring spin bowlers. The surface is expected to slow down as the game proceeds, making it more difficult for the batsmen to play their strokes. To get wickets on this surface, pacers need to bowl more cutters and hit the hard lengths. After winning the toss, both sides should aim to bowl first.

Weather Report

Sharjah’s weather will be sunny and warm, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 33 degrees Celsius. There will be no clouds during the game. The humidity level will be approximately 46%.

Key Players

Mohammad Rizwan

Mohammad Rizwan has been outstanding in this year’s T20 World Cup. He got off to a flying start with a brilliant half-century against India in Dubai, which Pakistan won by ten wickets. He then went on to play another solid inning against New Zealand, but failed to perform against Afghanistan, but is likely to rebound in the upcoming time.

George Munsey

George Munsey, as an opener, has access to areas of the field that few hitters in the current Scotland squad have. And the fact that he can do it on the powerplay makes him a dangerous player. However, while he has shown flashes of this potential thus far in the tournament, he has failed to convert his starts, with 29 being his highest in six innings. He still has an opportunity to redeem himself here.

Team News 

  • Pakistan are unlikely to make any changes to their starting lineup in order to tweak a winning formula. They don’t have any injuries to worry about right now.
  • Kyle Coetzer, Scotland’s captain, returned from a hand injury to play against New Zealand and India. They are not concerned about any injuries, but Joshua Davey has been replaced by Michael Jones.

Pakistan vs Scotland Match Tips

Scotland has struggled against spin bowling, with their batters failing to read the ball from the spinners’ hands. Pakistan has two good T20 spinners who have bowled successfully in this competition. Pakistan features class, consistency, and firepower in the batting area. Scotland, on the other hand, is reliant on people who shine on their particular day. Pakistan will be heavy favorites to win their match against Scotland based on their recent form. Pakistan will be desperate to make it five in a row on Sunday, with their top-order Batting and their spinners giving outstanding performances.
