Scotland vs Pakistan 1st T20 Fantasy Cricket Preview/Playing 11
Scotland, after trouncing England, will look forward to win their first T20 encounter against Pakistan. The playing XI of the Scottish squad is unlikely to be changed given their victory against England. Further, they have an added advantage of the home ground. The batting lineup looks fiery while the bowling unit is very confident. Despite being ranked 11 on the T20 rank list, the Scottish team is good in playing the limited over format. Hence, they will be a strong threat to the Pakistan team.
The Pakistan squad has been in good form, particularly in T20. They have well-experienced players who could take the Scottish team to task. Fakhar Zaman is expected to open the batting. If the wicket is a belter, he is likely to play a sizzling knock. Shadab Khan has been doing well lately. He is in a good form with the bat and the ball; he has all the tricks to win it for Pakistan. However, the absence of Babar Azam will be a huge blow to the team.
