USA Vs SCO Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: USA’s bid to make it two wins on the bounce sees them come across a behemoth hurdle.
When USA entered the fray of the ongoing third tri-series of the ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League 2, they entered as a side which were expected to be little else than pushovers. It was not only down to the level of competion they were facing off against but also owing to the dwindling form they had displayed over the course of the last month which saw the side shrouded in this unsavoury narrative.
However, when the side played their first match of the series yesterday, they ended up putting to bed all the qualms of their abject displays in the cricketing fraternity with a 3 wicket win on the day. Needing 203 runs to win, the side managed to squirm their way to a successful run chase, one which saw them persevere with over 4 overs in their kitty.
It saw them move atop of the CWC League 2 rankings with the 4 wins from 5 matches, a position Scotland will be looking to relinquish when the two sides square off against each other come today. In first position before this series began, Scotland have raked up the three wins in three contests with a win today seeing them move right back into the annuls of the points tally.
Cricket Scotland’s Simon Smith said: “We responded well after an early setback in round one, and will be looking to build on the three wins, when we travel to UAE in December. This round promises to be a fascinating series, and it will be exciting to renew rivalries with USA, whom we haven’t met for a number of years, and UAE, with whom our matches are always competitive.”
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The match contested over here yesterday was a low scoring affair but it was largely down to the tepid batting orders of the two sides. Overall, this is a solid track for the batters with the surface favouring the bowlers in the first part before eventually settling down completely in favour of the bats to lead the side winning the toss opting to chase here.

USA Vs SCO Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Matthew Cross from Scotland was a regulation pick for us in this docket of his side. Its due to the dual nature he comes bearing today, one which will see him being heftily involved with both the bat and gloves to rope in points in both the segments and amass a slew of points for our side.
USA Vs SCO Dream11 Batsmen
His team’s leading run getter across the ODI format with 2,296 in 54 matches, Kyle Coetzer was always going to be hammered down in the ambit of our Dream 11 side. The batsman is a stellar performer, someone capable of immersing us in a stunning display with the bat with us fully envisaging him leaving USA’s bowlers in disarray.
The 523 runs in his career see George Munsey be included as well in the fray of our side for the day while we are indulging in a reminiscent duo from USA as well. It begins with Aaron Jones, some whose 95 runs yesterday were solely responsible for his side’s win in an otherwise appalling and absurd run chase by his side.
His captain, Xavier Marshall came up with the 34 runs in that tie to see him be imbedded in our side as well for this fixture.
USA Vs SCO Dream11 All-Rounders
One of his side’s most consistent bats, Callum MacLeod is held in such high regard not only due to the 2,010 runs he has tallied up for his country but the 8 centuries he’s scored to tally up those runs. Richie Berrington will be accompanying him for the day with the all-rounder being someone more than capable of incorporating his skill set in both the facets of the game and utilising them in tandem to dole out a match winning display.
USA Vs SCO Dream11 Bowling Order
After losing 7 wickets in pursuit of a target which should have been easy to peel apart, one thing which is ascertained from this clash is that Scotland are going to mince and lambast USA today with the ball. It sees us invest heavily in their bowling unit, seeing us moving in with Safyaan Sharif and mark watt from the setup, two bowlers who’ll be heavily involved in the side’s consummate success with the ball on the day.
On the other hand, USA will find representation in the form of the two players as well after sending their opponents back to the pavilion for just 202 yesterday with both Rusty Thereon and Nosthush Kenjige coming in for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
MacLeod will be leading our side out as the captain while Berrington will be our vice-captain.
