New Zealand and Scotland Will face each other in Match Day 32 of the Super 12 round in the ICC World T20 2021. Both teams will be keen to win to keep their hopes of a semi-final berth alive. The Kiwis will be the favourite in this fixture, though betting in India will be against them and will want them to lose.
New Zealand will be looking to extend their winning streak as they face off against the Scots in their upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 match. Following their eight-wicket victory against India in their last match, the Kiwis will be brimming with confidence. They will be looking to add two more points to their tally and tighten their grip on the second place in Group 2, as per google cricket.
In their first match of the tournament, New Zealand were defeated by Pakistan by five wickets. It was a disappointing start to the team’s campaign. But they blasted India in what was a virtual knockout game, regaining control of the campaign and bringing it back on track.
For the Kiwis, the calculation has become much more straightforward. If they win their remaining three games, they will earn a spot in the semi-finals of the tournament. Even a single loss, on the other hand, may significantly reduce their prospects of advancing.
Scotland, on the other hand, has lost both of its matches thus far in the Super 12 tournament. Scotland qualified for the Super 12 stage by winning their group in the preliminary round, which they did. However, they were defeated by Afghanistan and Namibia in their first two games.
Despite the fact that they are not anticipated to compete with the Kiwis, the Scottish team should strive to pull off a major shock. George Munsey needs 28 runs to reach the milestone of 1500 runs in Twenty20 cricket. Michael Leask needs eight more runs to reach the milestone of 500 runs in Twenty20 international cricket. Until he reaches 100 sixes in international cricket, Richard Berrington needs only one more huge shot.
Calum MacLeod needs three more sixes to reach 50 in international cricket before he can call himself a winner. In Twenty20 cricket, Matthew Cross needs five more boundaries to reach the milestone of 100 fours.
New Zealand and Scotland have only met once in a Twenty20 International (T20I), with New Zealand winning by seven wickets in that match.
New Zealand are a very strong team on paper than Scotland. So, it will be difficult for Scotland to pull off an upset against Kiwis. So, New Zealand are the favourites for this match.
