The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 is finally here, with the first fixture is Bangladesh against Scotland. Unsurprisingly, the Tigers are firm favourites.Shakil M. Cricket Betting
Scotland has played Bangladesh 5 times in One-day internationals (ODI) between 1999-2015 with Bangladesh winning 4 of the last 5 ODI matches, and the other match was abandoned. Scotland played Bangladesh 1 time in a T20i match in 2012, and Scotland won the match by 34 runs.
Bangladesh is no longer an underdog at the World Cup, but rather a high-potential and dangerous opponent. Scotland will have to try to break up Bangladesh’s lethal batting line to cut off the score. On the other hand, Bangladesh will have to focus on taking wickets of the Scotland team because the team is packed with five-star batsmen who can score a huge target, and it’ll be hard to chase those runs for Bangladesh.
Bangladesh has won every one-day internationals match against Scotland previously. If Scotland loses some wickets due to the unfamiliarity of the tiger’s new bowling discipline and can’t maintain a steady run count, they will pay the price dearly since they rely on their batting lineup. On the other hand, Bangladesh has more experienced players in T20 matches since many Bangladeshi team players, including a world-class all-rounder Sakib Al Hasan, regularly participates in the biggest T20 tournament worldwide IPL.
Bangladesh will win by a big margin in wickets or runs.Cricket Betting
Bangladesh is the new hot favorite team, with Mahmudullah being the captain of the team; both the run-scoring and the wicket-taking game are strong and in favor of Bangladesh right now. Also, there are some potential talents on the team that Scotland might not be prepared for, such as the deadly leg spinners from Nasum Ahmed. He is a rising talent who has taken 18 wickets in the 14 matches he played.
On the other hand, Scotland doesn’t have any new talents on their team which makes the whole team a little predictable. With no breakout talent, without the element of surprise, it’ll be hard to handle tough situations.
Scotland’s batting line struggles against spin bowls which can be a turning point for the Bangladeshis because the team contains five spin bowlers who are heavy wicket-takers like Sakib al Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Aminul Islam.
The only way Scotland can win is by destroying the batting lineup with their bowling action which is no easy task since the Bangladesh team strategically arranged their batting lineup, which begins with junior players Mohammad Naim and Shamim Hossain, who are capable of starting off the innings with a bang and there are more experienced players down the lineup. Although Scotland was once able to win against Bangladesh in a T20 match in 2012, it is highly unlikely this time looking at the player statistics.
The key players of the fixture are:
Mustafizur Rahman is the Bangladeshi team’s bowling maestro and wicket-taker. Surviving his left-arm fast-medium deliveries is quite difficult. He collected 76 wickets in 52 T20 matches. He’s most likely to take the most wicket and become the best match bowler.

Shakib Al Hasan will become the man of the match since he’s outstanding in both bowling and batting. He has played in T20 cricket events all around the world and has scored over 1700 runs in his career. With so much experience, he must be the Tigers’ most important player.

Mahmudullah Riyad, one of the most disciplined players in the cricket world, will become the best batsman. His record as the team’s t20 captain has been outstanding, with a win rate of 50%. He’ll once again be the team’s finisher. In his career, he scored over 1700 runs in T20 cricket.
