WI vs SCT Team Previews

West Indies

West Indies is not in great shape, having lost four of its last five Twenty20 international matches. On the other hand, the team has proven in the past that it can perform admirably under pressure in T20 international tournaments. West Indies’ chances of winning may be improved by the fact that the match will be played at the more favorable Bellerive Oval.

Because of the size of the stadium, the Scots’ opponents will be banking on being able to use their superior strength to win. The primary burden of scoring runs will fall on the shoulders of Nicholas Pooran, Brandon King, and Rovman Powell. When it comes to bowling, Obed McCoy and Akeal Hosein are going to be crucial players.

We think Kyle Mayers is a player to keep an eye on. Mayers has proven himself to be a top-tier power hitter and all-around talented player after a stellar CPL. To win this match, all West Indies has to do is avoid making silly mistakes.

Scotland

Scotland has been placed in a challenging group with no easy games. But it knows that if it wins this match, it will have a good chance of advancing. George Munsey and Richie Berrington will be largely responsible for driving in runs. The rest of the lineup isn’t great, but Callum MacLeod and the first couple of batters in are solid exceptions.

Scotland’s chances of putting pressure on the West Indies depend on cameos from players all around the order, as they are no match for the West Indies’ strength. Scotland’s bowling attack isn’t terrible on paper, but it doesn’t get to test itself against top-tier opposition as often.

The top bowlers in this squad are Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, and Brad Wheal.

Pitch and Conditions

It will likely be cloudy and possibly rainy in Hobart today. Bellerive Oval has an excellent batting pitch. Very low fences and a pleasant bounce make for an enjoyable batting experience. While the typical team score is over 8, most teams should be able to go for between 180 and 190.

It seems like we’re in for a lot more sixes.
