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 first of the five-match T20I series at The Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh on Wednesday. Scotland haven’t played any T20Is since the T20 World Cup Qualifiers in 2019 while Zimbabwe come to these shores on the back of a 2-3 series defeat against Ireland.

SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction

Like mentioned earlier, there isn’t much of a guide to Scotland’s form since they haven’t played for a long time. However, the hosts did play out a 1-1 ODI series against the Netherlands back in May. On the other hand, Zimbabwe have largely had a disappointing run except for rare wins against Pakistan, Bangladesh and Ireland

SCO vs ZIM Ground Details

Ground: Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh

Pitch Report: The tracks at the Grange Cricket Club are generally flat and very favourable for the batsmen. Runs could especially flow since the boundaries at this venue are pretty small. So, it won’t be a surprise if the par score if 180.

Brief score of the last result at the venue: Pakistan (166/6) beat Scotland (82/10) by 84 runs on 13 Jun 2021

SCO vs ZIM Dream 11 Fantasy Tips 2021

Zimbabwe have continued to struggle with their batting in this series and that isn’t surprising given the inexperience in the team. However, on the other hand, Ireland’s senior payers have stepped up and their batting has become progressively better with each game. This make the hosts favourites to seal a series win on Thursday.

SCO 2021 Captain (Kyle Coetzer)

Scottish skipper Kyle Coetzer is an aggressive opener for the side who has been doing well for a long time. He fared well in the T20 World Cup Qualifiers too with 169 runs from seven matches

Kyle Coetzer in T20I cricket: 1386 runs from 58 matches

ZIM 2021 Captain (Craig Ervine)

Zimbabwe captain Craig Ervine comes into this series after a very good tour of Ireland. Even though Zimbabwe didn’t fare well as a team, Ervine impressed in the five-match T20I series with 160 runs.

Craig Ervine in T20I cricket: 696 runs from 31 matches

Man of the Match in SCO vs ZIM

Left-handed opener George Munsey will be a prime candidate for bagging the ‘Man of the Match’ award. Munsey is known to entertain with his sweeps and reverse-sweeps especially against spinners.

George Munsey in T20I cricket: 987 runs from 38 matches

SCO Top Picks

Hamza Tahir

Left-arm spinner Hamza Tahir has been a revelation for Scotland ever since his debut. He tends to be very accurate and bowl stump to stump which brings LBW and bowled dismissals into the equation.

Hamza Tahir in T20I cricket: 18 wickets from 11 matches

Richie Berrington

Veteran all-rounder Richie Berrington is also expected to be a key player for Scotland. Apart from being a big-hitter, Richie can also come up with useful medium-pace bowling.

Richie Berrington in T20I cricket: 1247 runs and 27 wickets from 61 matches

ZIM Top Picks

Ryan Burl

All-rounder Ryan Burl has been one of the better performers for Zimbabwe in recent times. He produced 75 runs and six wickets from three T20Is against Ireland recently.

Ryan Burl in T20I cricket: 537 runs and 21 wickets from 31 matches

Regis Chakabva

Wicket-keeper batsman Regis Chakabva had a disappointing tour of Ireland as he couldn’t replicate the form from the home matches against Bangladesh. He will look to get into the rhythm once again and provide an impactful start for Zimbabwe.
