Match Preview

WI vs SCO: Group B will be in action on the second day of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022 qualifiers. The first match is scheduled between West Indies and Scotland. The fixture will be played at Bellerive Oval ground in Hobart on 17th October 2022.

Nicholas Pooran-led West Indies is one of the most successful teams in the T20 format. They have the most titles (2) in the collection. However, they failed to receive direct qualification for the Super 12 ad and hence are fighting it out in the qualifiers. They lost to Australia in a very recently concluded 2 game T20 series. They did win the warm-up game, but the center stage of the qualifiers will be much more difficult. 

Scotland, on the other hand, is a young and inexperienced team. They did well in the warm-up game and will be confident. They last had an international game in the month of August. Hence, the 2-month gap would hamper their preparations and performance. Nevertheless, a good contest between the two teams is likely to play out.

Pitch Report for WI vs SCO

The games at Hobart have been high-scoring in the past. The pitch is likely to live up to its past behavior and a high-scoring game is not ruled out. The pacers are in for some movement in the initial phase. Rain can make an unpleasant appearance. Bowling first will certainly be the preferred choice for the toss-winning captain.
