SCO vs ZIM 12th Match Probable Winners:
There are talented players on either side but it is a fact that Zimbabwe play far more IT20s than Scotland. The greater match-practice could well be crucial for Zimbabwe. This should be an excellent contest between two teams who know that a win in this match will see them go forward to the Super 12 stage. Scotland have a strong batting line-up but they are lacking a real quick pace option. We are backing Zimbabwe to win. Considering the team combination, Zimbabwe is expected to win this match.
