Till to date, 3 ODIs have been played between these two teams and all of them were won by West Indies. In the T20 and test format, they are yet to play a match. Windies and Scotland’s team haven’t played a single T20 match against each other. This will be the 1st T20 match between them and T20 world cup 2022 will be that event in which they will be clashing to get a spot in Super-12.
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 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 Windies squad for the T20 World Cup 2022, they will be missing some big names but they have serious power hitters in their squad. Evin Lewis and Nicholas Pooran will be providing Windies with the much needed fireworks in the opening over. Pooran is their top run scorer with 764 runs in 25 innings. Rovman Powell and Brandon King have some serious power hitting talent and can provide their team with match winning runs at crucial moments. Johnson Charles and Hetmyer can bat finely too.
In the bowling department, Akeal Hossein is the man they will be looking at. He has 23 wickets in 22 matches. Jason is an experienced and wonderful right hand fast bowler and on the Australian pitches, he will be crucial for West Indies as he can bowl bounce nicely due to his height. Another star bowler could be Sheldon Cottrell as he has different kinds of action and could trouble the Scottish batters.
On paper, the West Indies team is looking strong as they have power hitters in the batting department and pace bowlers in the bowling department who can bowl at good length and trouble their opponents While Scottish team is lacking firepower in the batting and their pace bowling is also poor.
