Preview: Boosted by a dominating win over Afghanistan in the previous game, Team India will now play a game against Scotland on Friday. While one among New Zealand and Afghanistan looks to qualify for the semi-final at the number 2 spot in the Group 2 points table, India still have an outside chance with some permutations and combinations to go in their favour. However, to make that happen, the Men in Blue must have to win this game. Scotland, on the other hand, would also love to spoil India's virtual hopes.
Analysis: The famous KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma partnership is back in form. The two batters are a must-pick in one's fantasy team and Rahul seems to be a better contender to made the captain. Virat Kohli is always crucial in anyone's final XI, courtesy his consistency with the bat. Though he didn't get to bat in the previous game against Afghanistan, he will expectedly perform against Scotland. Ravichandran Ashwin was sensational on his return to the T20I circuit after more than 4 years. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah is as always on the money. From the Scotland camp, Michael Leask, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt and George Munsey are players who are likely to fetch good fantasy points.
