Probable XI for Scotland: George Munsey, Michael Jones, Matthew Cross (wk), Richie Berrington (c), Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Brad Wheal

Regis Chakabva’s poor run with the bat has affected Zimbabwe at the top. In his last 5 T20Is, he has managed only 30 runs.
Likewise, Milton Shumba too has struggled. His recent scores in T20Is read 1, 3, 4, 16, and 2.
Although Scotland lost to Ireland, Michael Jones kept fantasy players happy through his ballistic knock of 86 off 55 balls (6 fours and 4 sixes).
Although Sean Williams failed with the bat, he made amends by picking a wicket, inflicting a run-out, and holding on to a catch. Overall, he provided 22.5 crucial points.
Once again, Richie Berrington demonstrated his hitting skills at the death. His 27-ball 37 helped him garner 25 vital points.
Scotland will bank on their leading bowlers Mark Watt and Brad Wheal for regular breakthroughs. They have picked 7 wickets between them in this World Cup.
George Munsey got out cheaply against Zimbabwe, but one cannot forget his blazing innings of 66* in the opening game against the West Indies. His role is to go hammer and tongs in the powerplay.
There is no stopping Sikandar Raza. He was the captain of the Ultimate Team for bagging a three-for and smashing a quick-fire 14 off 8 with the bat. In the match against the West Indies, he was selected by 96% of the fantasy players.
Blessing Muzarabani has been Zimbabwe’s leading seamer in this World Cup. He has taken 5 wickets and has been a part of the Ultimate Team on both occasions.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
In this tournament, three out of four matches at Hobart have been won by the team defending. The seamers have found enough assistance to work with. In the last game, they picked 11 wickets, as 3 went the way of the spinners.
