When we take a look at the previous contest between these two teams, we will see that up to now they have played 3 ODIs and 4 T20s against each other. They have won 1 ODI each and 1 ended in a tie. Out of the 4T20s, 3 were won by the Zimbabwean team while 1 by the Scottish team.
Speaking about the Scottish team, Calum Macleod is their main man when it comes to the batting department. He is a wonderful player who has 837 runs in 20 matches with an average of 44.05. He is a right handed batsman and can hit the ball nicely. Their captain Kyle Coetzer is an amazing player who has 616 runs in 21 T20 matches and has an average of 32.42 with the bat.
Another fine Scottish player is Richie Berrington. With an average of 44.76 in 17 innings, he has 582 runs. Their bowling department is weak and even their top wicket taker who is Mark Watt who has 11 wickets in 13 matches has an average of 28.45 in bowling. These are not some big numbers and Scotland should be worried as on Australian pitches, Pace bowling will be the key. Josh Davey and Michael Leask are the two bowlers, with whom the Scottish team management would have expectations
Looking at the Zimbabwe team, you’ll see they have brought some old and experienced players to their team. Wellington Masakadza and Tendai Chatara and Milton Shumba. Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad.
One more fabulous player of the Zimbabwe team is Sikandar Raza. During the past 1 year, he has scored 516 runs in 15 T20s at an average of 39.69. While Wessly Madhevere is also in brilliant form from the previous one year. Masakadza will bring the much needed experience in the team.
While the return of Tendai Chatara is a sign of relief for Zimbabwe as he is a very fine fast bowler. The notable bowling performance from the Zimbabwe side from the previous 1 year has been from Sikandar Raza and Luke Jongwe. These will be the key players of the Zimbabwe team.
Keeping in consideration the previous records, we can say that the Zimbabwean team is a strong contender to win this match as they are a bit better team than Scotland, who are lacking some experienced players.
