New Zealand is set to face Scotland in their upcoming game of the World T20 Cup on 3rd November 2021. While Scotland is yet to register a win in the Super 12, making it impossible to make it to the semis, a win in this game for the Kiwis is a must to stay alive in the race to the semi-finals. New Zealand made a striking comeback in their last game against India, after losing their opening game against Pakistan and will aim to sustain the momentum in order to win their next game.
The Blackcaps will aim to exert their dominance over Scotland as they walk into this game on the back of a remarkable win against India. Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill will be the top batting options from the side with the latter being an excellent captain choice. Besides, Daryl Mitchell and Mitchell Santner can be smart options in one’s fantasy team. New Zealand’s bowling is undoubtedly one of their key strengths with Trent Boult and Ish Sodhi being the key bowlers.
Scotland have had a forgetful campaign in the Super 12 so far, but will aim to win their upcoming games in order to salvage some pride. George Munsey and Matthew Cross are the top batting picks from the side. Besides them, Richie Berrington and Chris Greaves’ contribution from their respective departments can add up to one’s fantasy points.
