AFG vs SCO Dream11 Today Match Prediction: In the 3rd match of Group 2 Super 12, the top associate nations, Afghanistan and Scotland will face off against each other. Both teams are high on confidence after showing great form in the qualifying stages and the warmups.

AFG vs SCO T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Afghanistan

  • Afghanistan won the match against West Indies and lost to South Africa in the warmups.
  • Mohammad Shahzad and Hazratullah Zazai scored fifties against Windies and looked in great touch.
  • Captain Nabi was the star with the ball in the match against Windies. He registered outstanding figures of 3-2 after bowling four overs in that match.

Scotland

  • Max O Dowd was the star with the bat in the group matches with 123 runs from 3 matches.

AFG vs SCO Today Match Prediction

This should be a cracker of a contest. Scotland are high on confidence after winning all their last three matches. The fact that they defeated even Bangladesh will give them confidence moving ahead to face Afghanistan. Almost all their players are in form and they can do it if they all fire up. Afghanistan’s chances on the other hand depend mainly on their openers Shahzad and Zazai. They stand a chance only if both these destructive openers carry on with their form.

AFG vs SCO Winning Chances

Both teams have chances theoretically taking into account past performances and current form. But practically Afghanistan is a little ahead of Scotland in all departments of the game. And hence they should be able to defeat them. Even the popular betting sites are also predicting the same.
