WI vs SCO – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview

West Indies

During the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, the campaign for two-time champions ended on a very disappointing note. Not only they were out of the tournament at a very early stage, but also the players who designed the flamboyant style of West Indies’ T20 cricket played their last tournament. Since then, West Indies is lacking that spark in the T20 format in international cricket.

The biggest disappointment for the Jamaican squad is the absence of Shimron Hetmeyer, who missed his flight to Australia because of some undisclosed personal reasons. Along with the likes of Gayle, Bravo, and Russell, former skipper Kieron Pollard will also miss the tournament. This means the West Indies squad has some new faces in their squad.

Shamarh Brooks has replaced Hetmyer for the whole tournament and is already in a good form in recent games. Looking at the recent games of West Indies, they need an overall focus in every department of the team. It is the right time for the squad to revive West Indies cricket and show the world that they are still good at it.


Scotland has a solid core and they can upset West Indies if they can punch above their weight. They need their heavyweight middle order to step up against the West Indies bowlers. Scotland’s pace attack can be a handful against West Indies. Scotland’s second warmup game against UAE was washed out due to rain but they had a very competitive first warmup match against the Netherlands which they won by 18 runs.

Mark Watt will be leading the spin department and can also bat at the lower end of the team. George Munsey and Matthew Cross will open their innings while experienced players like Calum MacLeod and Richie Berrington will man their middle order. Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif and Brad Wheal will lead their pace attack.

Comparing the stats of Scotland with West Indies, the latter is a strong team but Scotland carries the capability to surprise the opposition at different parts of the game.

WI vs SCO – ICC T20 World Cup – Probable Playing XI

West Indies: Johnson Charles, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (C & wk), Brandon King, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Odean Smith, Sheldon Cottrell, Yannic Cariah, Obed McCoy, Alzari Joseph

Scotland: George Munsey, Michael Jones, Matthew Cross (wk), Richard Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Mark Watt, Chris Greaves, Josh Davey, Chris Sole, Brad Wheal

WI vs SCO – ICC T20 World Cup – Toss Prediction & Pitch Report

Bellerive Oval is a dreamland for the batters across the globe. The ball comes onto the bat and the batters enjoy themselves on a steady-paced wicket. The toss-winning team should opt for the ball first because the pitch becomes much better for a batsman in the second inning.

WI vs SCO – ICC T20 World Cup – Match Prediction

Both the teams had a disappointing start to the new year and it seems like they are facing major problems to win atches. However, West Indies is an experienced team and much stronger than Scotland and hence we predict they will win the fixture.
