Scotland suffered one of their heaviest defeats in Scottish cricketing history as they were humiliated by Afghanistan in their last match. Now, it is the clash of the minnows as they will take on Namibia, who were impressive in the first round and should not be taken too lightly. Both teams will be looking at this as a match they can win, but who will come out on top? Keep on reading this T20 world cup match prediction to find out.

Scotland Team Preview

Scotland got a rude awakening when they played Afghanistan in their last match. Not only was their bowling attack very expensive, but their batsmen just crumbled under the pressure applied by the Afghanistan bowlers. Thankfully for the Scottish batsmen, they will not be up against such quality spin bowlers in this game.

The conditions will be tough for the Scots to adapt to, but we feel that the likes of Richie Berrington, George Munsey, and Callum MacLeod will be able to score enough runs to make Scotland competitive.

When it comes down to their bowling, Josh Davy, Safyann Sharif, and Mark Watt will be the key. The latter was the only Scottish bowler that avoided punishment against Afghanistan. His skill in the death overs is invaluable to Scotland, and should bring him some wickets in this next game.

Namibia Team Preview

Namibia will be quietly confident going into this next match after picking up two wins in a row. It really has not been much of a surprise to anyone that David Wiese has been their standout player. He has a lot of experience in T20 cricket and has played in leagues all over the world. He has been bowling his four allotted overs and has contributed valuable runs down the order.

It is obvious that Namibia depends on Wiese, but the likes of Ferhard Erasmus and Craig Williams are decent batsmen too. We think Scotland have the edge in the batting department, but the gap is not as big as some people like to think. Wiese will lead their bowling attack, while JJ Smit and Jan Frylinck will offer valuable support.

Toss Prediction

The team that is lucky enough to guess correctly at the coin toss will probably opt to field first. It might surprise you to hear that every Super 12 match to date has been won by the team that won the toss.

Pitch Conditions

The conditions will be slow, which will suit the spin bowlers as usual. The Abu Dhabi wicket had started to improve as the IPL wore on, but the match between South Africa and Australia saw another slow surface. Since this is the second match on the day, batsmen from both teams might find it tricky to score runs unless dew arrives and gives an advantage to the team batting second.

Our Match Prediction

We are going to put our money on Scotland to bounce back and win this match. The Scots have lost the two T20I matches that they have played against Namibia to date, but we feel that they will be on the right end of the result this time around. They have a better squad of players and more depth.
