IND vs SCO ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Match 37 Preview:

After facing a couple of consecutive defeats, India finally roared back on Wednesday against Afghanistan and hammered them by a margin of 66 runs, to clinch their first win in the tournament. Apart from winning their last two group games by a substantial margin, they will still need to depend on New Zealand’s defeat at the hands of Afghanistan or Namibia to fancy their qualification chances, which seems unlikely.

For these permutations to transpire, India needs nothing less than a miracle. On the other hand, Scotland has lost all of their 3 games so far and is placed last on the Group 2 points table. They were on the verge of defeating New Zealand in their previous outing but fell short of 16 runs in the end.

India played against Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi for their third group stage match. Afghanistan skipper won the toss and sent India in to bat. India went all guns blazing from the very beginning and stacked a 140-run partnership for the opening wicket. Rohit Sharma contributed 74 runs while KL Rahul scored 69 runs. After the opening duo departed, two short format specialists, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya ensured India an above-average total, with the former scoring 27 off 13 while the latter smashing 35 off 13.

India ended up piling 210 for the loss of 2 wickets at the end of their 20 overs quota. Gulbadin Naib and Karim Janat picked a wicket each. Coming to chase, India gave some early tremors to the Afghani side and reduced them to 69-5 after 12 overs. However, Karim Janat (42*) and Nabi (35) ensured they reach a decent total. Mohammad Shami hunted 3 scalps while Ashwin trapped a couple of them.

Scotland faced New Zealand in Dubai for their third league stage match. Bowling first, they wrecked the Kiwi top order and forced them to 52-3 towards the end of the powerplay, but Martin Guptill (93) and Glenn Phillips (33) helped the Kiwis recover things from there by stitching a 105-run partnership. Bradley Wheal and Safyaan Sharif grabbed 2 wickets each.

Coming to chase, Scotland got off to a flying start but failed to capitalize on it, and ended up falling 16 runs short. Michael Leask stacked an unbeaten 42 off just 20 deliveries. Trent Boult and Ish Sodhi picked a couple of wickets each.

India needs a big-margin win here to keep their semi-finals’ hopes alive. Scotland, though its performance against New Zealand, has sent a message to the big teams to take them lightly at their own peril. These two sides have never met before, and this will be the first encounter between them.
