Bangladesh vs Scotland Team Previews
Recent series victories over Australia and New Zealand have raised Bangladeshi fans’ expectations of their team. However, Bangladesh has been consistently poor in T20 cricket for a long time. The conditions in which it excels at home are vastly different from those in which it will compete in Oman for this match.
We have a good idea of what Bangladesh’s starting eleven will be like. Mohammad Naim and Liton Das will bat first, with the number three spot used as a surprise option. Shakib Al Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, and even Soumya Sarkar have all played in that position.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, and the all-rounders will make up the middle order. Afif Hossain and Nurul Hossain are expected to round out the batting order.
This is a strong batting lineup that can play aggressively while also having the experience to perform under pressure. Bangladesh’s bowling will be heavily reliant on Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan, but Shoriful Islam is someone to keep an eye on as well.
Shoriful Islam takes a lot of wickets but goes unnoticed, so you should be able to get good betting odds on him.
Bangladesh T20 Squad
Afif Hossain, Liton Das (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mahmudullah (c), Mohammad Naim, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, Nurul Hasan (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Shamim Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Soumya Sarkar, Taskin Ahmed. Reserves: Aminul Islam, Rubel Hossain
Predicted XI: Mohammed Naim, Liton Das/Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahedi hasan, Nasum Ahmed/Mohammed Saifuddin
Scotland, the strongest of the associate nations, believes it has a real chance of reaching the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup in 2021. It has a solid batting lineup capable of surprising any opponent.
Callum MacLeod, Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, Kyle Coetzer, and George Munsey are the players to watch in this game. This is a strong batting lineup, and while it isn’t the best against spin, Scotland will be relieved to be playing in Oman, where the pitch has been hard and fast.
In this match, Berrington and MacLeod are two players to consider for the Top Batsman Scotland betting market.
Scotland’s lack of quality spin-bowling options is a significant weakness that could prove costly in this match. Safyaan Sharif is without a doubt Scotland’s best bowler, and we will select him for the Top Bowler Scotland betting market. Bradley Wheal, Mark Watt, and others may also find themselves in the starting eleven.

Richard Berrington, Dylan Budge, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Josh Davey, Alasdair Evans, Chris Greaves, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Hamza Tahir, Craig Wallace (wk), Mark Watt, Brad Wheal. Reserves: Michael Jones, Chris Sole
Predicted XI: Kyle Coetzer (c), George Munsey, Callum Macleod, Mathew Cross, Richie Berrington, Micheal Leask, Bradley Wheal, Shayaan Sharif, Chris Greaves, Hamza Tahir, Mark Watt
Bangladesh vs Scotland Toss Prediction
The team that wins the toss will want to field first. Because of the small boundaries and fast outfield, defending totals can be difficult at this venue.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The weather will not be an issue for this match, and the pitch will be ideal for cricket as well. Oman and Sri Lanka competed in two T20 internationals just prior to the start of the T20 World Cup 2021. Those were high-scoring games, with 170 appearing to be a par total. There were a lot of sixes hit in those matches, and the same can be expected for this one.
Bangladesh vs Scotland Match Prediction
We’re going to put money on Bangladesh to win this game. There has only been one previous match between Bangladesh and Scotland, which Scotland won. However, that match took place in 2012, and a lot has changed since then.
Bangladesh’s batting appears to be adequate, and its bowling appears to be stronger than in any of the recent tournaments in which it has competed. Scotland is a dangerous team, but its lack of spin bowling resources may be a disadvantage.
Bangladesh is the favorites to beat Scotland at the odds of 1.20.
- Bangladesh defeated Australia and New Zealand in a T20 series just before the start of the T20 World Cup 2021.
- Scotland is playing in unfavourable conditions for its strengths.
- Bangladesh’s bowling attack is stronger than it has been in a long time, and it should not be underestimated.
