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.

Who Will Win Today Match?

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.

Team News

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.

Cricket Tips

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:

  • Shakib Al Hasan: He’s been a legend of Bangladesh cricket for a long time, frequently topping the ICC’s greatest all-rounders list.
  • Mustafizur Rahman: He is the bowling master and wicket-taker of the Bangladeshi team and is capable of changing the match anytime.
  • Mahmudullah Riyad: A very explosive and aggressive batsman that can build a huge scoreline.
  • Calum MacLeod: An experienced right-handed batsman of Scotland, he can score a lot of runs.
  • Mark Watt: An exciting prospect in the Scottish team, a left-handed left spin bowler with 7.15 economy

Who will be the best match bowler?

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.
