Super 12, Group 2, Match 17, AFG vs SCO: Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable XIs, Fantasy Picks
Afghanistan and Scotland will lock horns in match 17 of the T20 World Series 2021 on Monday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Scotland displayed immense courage and heart to book a place in the Super 12. They were impressive throughout the qualifiers and we expect more of the same from Kyle Coetzer’s men. They won all their three games to top Group B of the first round. Scotland commenced their WT20 campaign with an unbelievable 6 run win over Bangladesh followed by two more wins over Papua New Guinea and Oman. The batting department will be led by the experienced Kyle Coetzer and George Munsey who have got starts in this tournament but so far have not been able to convert them into a significant score. Richie Berrington and Matthew Cross will also be key batters to watch out for. The Scottish bowling attack looks potent with the likes of Josh Davey and Brad Wheal in the ranks. Afghanistan on the other hand will begin their WT20 campaign on Monday. They will be happy to kick off their campaign at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium given the kind of spinners they have in the mix. Batting has been their weak link and Skipper Nabi would be hoping his batters to put up a strong show in the opening fixture. Ahead of this riveting tie let’s have a look at how these two units will fare out in today’s clash
Match: AFG vs SCO, T20 World Series, 2021.
Date: Monday, October 25, 2021

The pitch of course will help the bowlers and specially the spinners. It will be tough to score runs. However, expect a good low scoring game. Dew will be a factor in the second innings of the match.
