  • Scotland missed the chance to go two points clear of their nearest rivals in Group B after they were beaten by West Indies, leaving them in what is essentially a knockout match with Zimbabwe to determine who will go through to the ‘Super 12’ stage.
  • The batting has been really good so far from Scotland across the group stage, having racked up scores of 160/5 and 176/5 respectively, but their bowlers conceded far too many runs against West Indies and must tighten up in this one.


  • Zimbabwe failed to back up their surprise victory over Ireland, falling to a 31-run loss against West Indies and like Scotland, this match for them is win or bust in regards to their tournament hopes.
  • After racking up 174/7, being skittled out for 122 vs the Windies underlines the inconsistency that T20 cricket can serve up, although it was a strong West Indies bowling attack that they faced.


A huge match for both nations here with the winner advancing from Group B and Zimbabwe, who have beaten Scotland in three of their four previous meetings in T20i cricket need to bat better than they did on Wednesday. For Scotland, it’s about bowling at the levels they showed against West Indies rather than Ireland, which saw them concede 9 wides. It’s very important to note that Scotland have recent experience in pressure games such as this after getting through the group stage in last year’s T20 World Cup. These Zimbabwean players meanwhile have not been in such a situation and on an occasion such as this, holding your nerve is vital. With that in mind, the smart move is to back Scotland to get the better of Zimbabwe and triumph here.
