PAK beat SCO Highlights: Pakistan keeps winning streak intact with 72 runs win over Scotland, will face Australia in the semifinal

Opting to bat, the Men in Green posted a huge total of 189/4 on the back of Shoaib Malik’s 18-ball fifty – the fastest for Pakistan in T20 WC & joint fastest in the ongoing World Cup. On the other hand, bowlers did a commendable job and restricted the Scots at 117/6 in the allotted overs.

PAK beat SCO Highlights: Pakistan keeps winning streak alive with 72 runs win over Scotland, will face Australia in the semifinal

Pakistan set a daunting total for 190 runs for Scotland in Sharjah in their final Super 12 round of the ongoing T20 World Cup. Coming to set the total, the Men in Green were off to a solid start as the opening duo of M Rizwan and Babar Azam added 35 runs in the powerplay.

Scotland tasted the first success in the seventh over after Hamza Tahir removed M Rizwan. Babar Azam then shifted the gears in the middle over and slammed his fourth fifty in the showpiece event before Shoaib Malik went berserk at the death over slamming an 18-ball fifty – the joint-fastest of the tournament – to help Pakistan post 189/4.

Coming to chase, Scotland never looked into the run-chase and lost their first wicket inside the powerplay when Hasan Ali removed skipper Kyle Coetzer with the scorecard reading 23/1 in the sixth over. The Men in Green kept chipping wickets at regular intervals and eventually restricted the Scots at 117/6 in the allotted over.

Richie Berrington, however, was the silver lining for Scotland as he returned unbeaten on 54 off 37 deliveries.

For Pakistan, Shadab Khan was the pick of the bowler – who picked two wickets in an over – and returned with impressive figures of 2-14 in his four overs spell. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Hasan Ali picked up one wicket each in Pakistan’s 72 runs victory.

Toss update: Pakistan have won the toss and have opted to bat first

 

Former champions Pakistan will look to continue their invincible run when they play minnows Scotland in their inconsequential last Super 12 Group 2 match of the T20 World Cup on Sunday. Pakistan, who had claimed the title in 2009, have been simply sensational in the tournament so far and have bossed around other teams in their group to seal a place in the last four with four convincing wins. If arch-rivals India were blown away by 10 wickets, New Zealand were outclassed by five wickets, in the team’s first two matches.

T20 World Cup- PAK vs SCO Live: Afghanistan did make life difficult for them for a while but Asif Ali deposited four sixes in six balls to bail them out before Pakistan sealed their semifinal spot with a 45-run win over Namibia in their last match.

Pakistan’s openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have been on fire and when they failed to do the job, their middle-order rose to the occasion, while six-hitting machine Asif has proved to be one of the best finishers in the tournament so far. Although they have contributed, the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik will hope to be more consistent and look to stay till the end.

T20 World Cup- PAK vs SCO Live: In the bowling department, the pace duo of Haris Rauf and Shaheen Afridi have been their best bowlers with seven and five wickets respectively so far, while spinners Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan, too, have done the job asked of them.

The only worrying thing will be the form of seamer Hasan Ali, who has gone for runs. With the semifinal spot assured, Pakistan might look to rest a few players and give others opportunities in the inconsequential match. For Scotland, it will be an uphill task but they would hope to put up a better show than their last match and end things on a positive note.

T20 World Cup- PAK vs SCO Live: Scotland won all three matches to qualify for Super 12 but crashed out after losing the last four games. The eight-wicket loss to India on Friday night has been the most difficult to digest but skipper Kyle Coetzer will hope the interaction with Indian players, including skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, in Dubai, will inspire the team to put up a good show against Pakistan.

Pakistan vs Scotland pitch report and weather forecast

The game will be played at Sharjah which has been the slowest wicket of the tournament. Despite the short boundaries, runs have been hard to come by at the venue, with teams scoring in the 160 regions. With the game playing after in the day, dew is likely to be a factor, with the captain winning the toss choosing to bowl first. Temperatures are expected to range in the mid 24 to 32 degrees celsius.

Pakistan vs Scotland predicted XIs

Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wicket-keeper), Babar Azam (captain), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi.
