Ever since removing Grant, Scotland have seen their form take a massive upturn for the good. They recently won a quadrangular T20 tournament against Ireland and the Netherlands in February, plus a 50-over series win with Toby Bailey in charge of the side till a permanent appointment was searched for.
What will always play heavily on Afghanistan’s mind will be the 7 wicket defeat they had suffered against Scotland when the two sides have last squared off against each in March 2016 at the qualifiers for the world cup. Afghanistan had subsequently recovered from that setback to make it through along with West Indies with Scotland’s obsolete form leaving their campaign redundant.
It’s these stories which are set to escalate the performances of both the sides when the two meet today. In a match that is set to be one that goes right down to the last ball, we take a look at the expected best performing players to indulge in your Dream 11 sides.
Wicket-Keeper for AFGH vs SCO Dream 11
This is a surface which has seen the average score on t be a colossal one in recent times and the batting friendly conditions could see the Shahzad find the boundary at will. He’s known for his ability to hit the big shots and with him being a batsmen who doesn’t like waiting around too much, a quick innings from him can be executed in all likelihood. He scored 43 in the recent T20 series that his side played against Ireland, proceeding a 100 in the T10, innings which saw him find the boundary at will
Batsmen for AFGH vs SCO Dream 11
We are going in with the full quota of 5 batsmen here given how much they are going to enjoy opening their arms and amassing a bagful of runs on this surface. We begin with our picks from Scotland first with Kyle Coetzer and Calum MacLeod heading straight into our teams.
The two were the main reason Scotland came up against England n Brisbane, a win that was one of the biggest results in the cricket fraternity in the last year. Coetzer’s 58 in the opening slot followed up by MacLleod’s 140 at number 3 were innings of massive worth, ones which decimated England on the day. Following up in the lower middle-order, George Musey completes the trio we are going in from Scotland.
From Afghanistan, we’ve decided to pick Hazratullah Zazai and Najibullah Zadran. These are two names in the Afghanistan unit who usual come up with the runs and they should o so yet again.
All-Rounders for AFGH vs SCO Dream 11
We are going with 2 all-rounders with George Berrington coming into our team without a doubt. He was the first player we picked when we started building the team, such is the terrific form he has been in domestic cricket off late. With 14 wickets, 5 50s and a hundred in recent times, he also becomes our captaincy pick for this one.
Michael Leask from Scotland is our second pick for the remaining spot, so confident we are of Scotland coming out on top of this encounter given the way they’ve showed massive improvement.
Bowlers for AFGH vs SCO Dream 11
There’s going to be little if anything here for the spinners and that makes us go with 3 pacers for the clash. The ball will come in frisking in the early part of the innings with the new ball misbehaving on a surface that should have some grass left on it. Scotland’s Mark Watt and Evans are out two picks to accompany Leask.
Afghanistan sees us pick Dawalt Zadran. We expect Afghanistan to be peeled apart for runs with Zadran has shown that he is someone is among the wickets when his side play.
