Scotland wouldn’t be too pleased with the way they have played in the Super 12 stage of the tournament. Kyle Coetzer and Co. lost all four games played in the tournament and thus are languishing at the bottom of the table.

They are set to play their last match in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 on Sunday against Pakistan. In this article, we look at Scotland’s predicted playing XI against Pakistan:

PAK vs SCO: Scotland’s (SCO) Predicted Playing XI Against Pakistan (PAK) – ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 41

Openers: George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer

Neither of them would be happy with their performances in the tournament. Munsey and Coetzer are two of the most experienced members in the squad.

There is no denying that the duo has failed to live up to expectations. Munsey got the starts but couldn’t convert those into big scores. Kyle Coetzer too hasn’t impressed much either.

Middle-Order: Mathew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Calum MacLeod

The middle-order comprising of Mathew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Calum MacLeod will be integral to Scotland’s fortune in the game.

Berrington was sensational in the first round of the tournament. He has 103 runs in 5 matches at a strike rate of 130. Mathew Cross too made a substantial contribution in the first round but hasn’t been able to perform in the Super 12s.

He has 101 runs in 5 matches at an average of 25.25. The trio made forgettable returns in the last two games for the team. They should return back to form if Scotland fancy a chance on Wednesday.

All-rounders: Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, and Mark Watt

Michael Leask played a handy 12-ball 21-run knock in the last game against India. Mark Watt made 14 off 13 deliveries, while Greaves scored 1 off 7 balls.

The trio add a lot of value to the side and the fans would be hoping that they contribute with both bat and ball in the last game on Sunday.

Bowlers: Safyaan Sharif, Evans, and Bradley Wheal

All three bowlers had a forgettable outing in the last game against India. Nevertheless, they would want to forget that and focus what’s ahead.

Safyaan Sharif and Bradley Wheal have picked wickets consistently in the tournament. They will be two big bets in the bowling department.
