Share

BAN vs SCO Dream11 Today Match Prediction: The T20 World Cup is back. The mega event will start with the doubleheader on the 17th of October. In the second match of the opening day, the strong Bangladesh side will take on a dynamic Scotland side, in the Al Amerat Cricket Ground. Both teams are in group B and have high chances of qualifying to the super 12 unless they throw it away. Both teams had contrasting results in the warm-up matches. Bangladesh lost both the matches that they played, whereas Scotland managed to win both.

BAN vs SCO T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Bangladesh

  • Bangladesh lost both the warm-up games (against Sri Lanka and Ireland) that they played ahead of the T20 World Cup.
  • Shakib Al Hasan, who missed the warm-ups due to IPL commitment, will join back with the squad.
  • Soumya Sarkar showed great form in the warm-up matches, scoring 71 runs from 2 innings.

Scotland

  • Scotland won both the warm-up matches (against Netherlands and Namibia) that they played ahead of the T20 World Cup.
  • Gareth Delany starred with the bat in the warm-up matches. He scored 93 runs from 2 innings.
  • Mark Watt was impressive in the warmup matches. He picked up 6 wickets from 2 matches including a 4-fer.

BAN vs SCO Today Match Prediction

Both teams have got enough match practice coming into this tournament. Bangladesh played 2 warm-up matches against Ireland and Sri Lanka respectively. Scotland on the other hand played 2 warm-up matches against Namibia and Netherlands respectively. Going with the current form Scotland has an edge. Delany and Mark Watt are in great form and on their day, they can easily upset Bangladesh. But you would have to be a fool to count out Bangladesh in ICC tournaments these days. With the arrival of Shakib Al Hasan, they are now an even stronger force, and hence they should be able to come good against Scotland in this fixture.

BAN vs SCO Winning Chances

Both teams are coming off after enough match practice in the warm-up matches. Considering the form that they showed in the warm-up games and taking into account the condition and playing XIs of both teams, the chances of Scotland upsetting Bangladesh cannot be counted out. But still, with the wealth of experience at hand, Bangladesh will start as favourites for this match. They are a better all-around team than Scotland and are expected to win this match. Even popular betting sites are also predicting a Bangladesh win.

Betway- BAN- 1.18, SCO- 4.33
