India finally won their first game of the 2021 T20 World Cup by beating Afghanistan pretty comfortably. This was a very good performance from the Indian side, although there is a chance that it has come a bit too late. Next up is a game against Scotland, and India will be needing another big win to improve their Net Run Rate even more!

Who will go on to win this match? Well, read this T20 match prediction to find out our opinion.

India Team Preview

India played against Afghanistan in the manner that we expect them to play in every match. The openers of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul played a number of aggressive shots to make a partnership of 140. Then, Rishab Pant and Hardik Pandya smashed the Afghan bowling attack to help India post the biggest score of the T20 World Cup to date.

They need to do the same in this game and we would not bet against them doing so. You should think about betting on Rahul or Sharma to score some runs, or you can bet on the number of fours and sixes that India will smash. India's bowling attack was much better in their last game than we have seen in the competition to date. Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah bowled with a lot of fire, while Ravi Jadeja and Ravi Ashwin bowled tightly in the middle overs.

India definitely have the team to win this game and to win big to improve their Net Run Rate.

Scotland Team Preview

Scotland were very good against New Zealand, and they showed why they are known as one of the best associate cricketing nations. The main issue for Scotland has been their batting - George Munsey seems to be a bit obsessed with swinging the bat at everything that is on the legside, and he could be a simple target straight up. If you bet against him to score runs, then you could end up with a profit.

Richie Berrington, Michael Leask, and Matthew Cross are the three batsmen that could make an impact for Scotland in this match.

On the other hand, their bowling lineup has been pretty impressive to date. The likes of Safyaan Sharif, Josh Davey, and Mark Watt are their best bowlers and are the players to put your money on if you like to take more of a risk whenever you are betting. Watt is very tricky to score off, so since the Indian batsmen will be looking to score runs quickly, he could end up collecting the most wickets.

Toss Prediction

The captain that is lucky enough to win the coin toss will more than likely opt to field first. This is an evening match, so there is a chance that some dew will form in the second innings, so the captain the wins the toss will not want to have to bowl with a wet ball. It really would be a surprise if the winning captain chose to bat first. It would also be a surprise if Kohli wins the coin toss because he has lost 13 of the last 14 tosses that he has been a part of.

Pitch Conditions

The pitch, as has been proven throughout the tournament, is good enough to score runs off of, but it is not one that is a graveyard for bowlers. There is a bit of something in it for everyone. However, there has been an issue of dew in the second innings because dew makes it easier to bat because the ball comes on to the bat better and harder to bowl because the ball becomes very slippery. The team that bats first will want to score around 170 runs.

Our Match Prediction

We do not see anything other than an India win in this match. If you are someone that approaches online cricket betting by betting a big amount for a small profit then this is the match for you because we really do not see Scotland causing India many issues!
