SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction, Playing 11, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Pitch Report, Team Details


SCO vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction: Scotland will take on Zimbabwe in the second of the three-match T20I series at The Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh on Friday. Scotland started the series with a bang as they defended 141 by seven runs to take a somewhat surprising 1-0 lead in the series. Zimbabwe had Scotland on the ropes on a few occasions but Richie Berrington’s 82-run knock and a four-wicket haul from Safyaan Sharif proved to be the difference in the end.

SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

Zimbabwe’s iffy form during this tour of Europe continued as they suffered a loss in the first T20I despite Milton Shumba’s valiant 45-run knock. Zimbabwe came into this series on the back of a 3-2 loss in the T20I series and a 1-1 draw in the ODI series against Ireland.

This will be the second T20I of the series with Scotland already having taken the lead on Wednesday. This will be a crucial game especially for Zimbabwe as a defeat would mean the third fixture on Sunday will turn into a dead rubber.

SCO vs ZIM Ground Details

Ground: Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh

Pitch Report: The track for the first T20I wasn’t a straight-forward one as most of the batsmen from both the teams struggled. There was purchase with the new ball for the seamers while the ball also stopped now and then which aided the spinners to come into the game. Once again, a score of 160 might be match-winning.

Brief score of the last result at the venue: Scotland (141/6) beat Zimbabwe (134/9) by seven runs on 15 Sep 2021

SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Team Prediction

Even though Scotland won the first game, Zimbabwe’s players can’t be ignored in this game. A lot of the Zimbabwean players performed while some others who didn’t come off like Regis Chakabva will also make our fantasy team. On the whole, Zimbabwe will edge Scotland with a 6-5 combination.

WICKET-KEEPER: Regis Chakabva
BATSMEN: Kyle Coetzer, Craig Ervine, George Munsey, Milton Shumba
ALL-ROUNDERS: Richie Berrington, Safyaan Sharif, Sean Williams
BOWLERS:  Luke Jongwe, Alasdair Evans, Tendai Chatara

SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Fantasy Tips 2021

Just like the rest of the European tour, Zimbabwe were let down by their batting order. Wesley Madhevere, in particular, has been a massive concern while Regis Chakabva’s form has also nosedived. Similarly, Scotland also struggled as their top-order collapsed before Richie Berrington single-handedly saved the game for the hosts. Returns for the top-orders of the two sides might determine the end result on Friday.

SCO Top Picks

Scotland’s strength is clearly in their top-order and also the pace attack. The likes of George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer and Richie Berrington are class batters who rarely let the team down. Also, the bowling attack which consists of Safyaan Sharif, Alasdair Evans and Chris Sole are known to be a reliable set of players

Safyaan Sharif

Experienced seamer Safyaan Sharif showed his class with a four-wicket haul. He held his nerve especially during the death overs to see Scotland home to a thrilling seven-run victory. Safyaan is also key in terms of lower-order hitting since the hosts lack fire-power through the middle and end overs.

Name Matches Runs Wickets
Safyaan Sharif 43 132 53


Richie Berrington

Veteran all-rounder Richie Berrington showed his class by producing an unbeaten 82-run knock off 61 balls when Scotland were reeling at 30-4. Berrington has done this saviour job for several years while also being a useful part-time medium-pacer. However, with age not on his side, Berrington’s bowling has come down to a large extent

ZIM Top Picks

Zimbabwe’s batting line-up has been out of form during this tour of Europe with the exception of Craig Ervine and Milton Shumba. The likes of Sean Williams, Regis Chakabva and Ryan Burl need to step up if the African nation hopes to comeback in this series. On the bowling front, the likes of Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza and Richard Ngarava have been in fine form

Ryan Burl

All-rounder Ryan Burl has been one of the better performers for Zimbabwe in recent times. However, he didn’t come off with both bat and ball during the first T20I and this affected the end result too. Burl’s big-hitting and leg-spin add value in both departments of the game.

Name Matches Runs Wickets
Ryan Burl 32 538 21

Sean Williams

Former captain Sean Williams is also a key player for Zimbabwe who are also known as the ‘Chevrons’. Williams made a decent 28-run knock and bowled an economical two-over spell in the first T20I. However, he will to do more to help out an inexperienced line-up.

Name Matches Runs Wickets
Sean Williams 48 973 32
