AFG vs SCO Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the AFG vs SCO T20 World Cup match.
The 17th match of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will be played between Afghanistan and Scotland in Sharjah tomorrow. The match will be the second Group 2 match of the Super 12s.
If beating defending champions West Indies by a 56-run margin in their second warm-up match isn’t big a flex for Afghanistan, readers must note that they have maintained an unbeaten streak against Scotland in their six T20Is against each other.
Furthermore, Afghanistan have played the most number of T20Is (12) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium winning nine (including three against Scotland) and losing just three over the years.

Despite numbers not favouring them, Scotland still have a lot to take confidence from ahead of their first Round 2 match. It is worth mentioning that Scotland qualified from Round 1 on the back of winning three matches in a row against Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea and Oman.
