Second innings average: 142
Type: Decent batting wicket.
Time: September 6, 5.30 PM IST
Probable XI for Scotland: Sarah Bryce (c & wk), Ailsa Lister, Abbi Aitken Drummond, Saskia Horley, Lorna Jack, Priyanaz Chatterji, Katie McGill, Megan McColl, Rachel Slater, Abtaha Maqsood, Katherine Fraser

Abbi Aitken has been struggling for runs in 2022. She has managed only 71 runs in 5 innings, including a duck in the first game.
Gaby Lewis might have been dismissed for only 1 in the first game, but it is important to recognize that her role is to go hammer and tongs in the powerplay. She has accumulated 312 runs in her last 10 T20Is, including the highest score of 105*.
As wickets kept falling at the other end, Saskia Horley in her T20I debut displayed great temperament by scoring a 42-ball 52 (6 fours and 1 six). The fact that she put a price on her wicket will excite fantasy players.
Sarah Bryce could be a decent pick in the wicketkeeper category. Besides inflicting 3 dismissals, she has added 134 runs, including the highest score of 36 in her last 5 competitive T20s.
Arlene Kelly not only picked 2 wickets but also generated handy bonus points for maintaining an impressive economy of 3 RPO. For the year, she has taken 7 wickets in as many games in the format.
Although Ireland lost the opening T20I, Katherine Fraser kept the fantasy players happy by dismissing the Irish openers cheaply. In 2022, she has bagged 9 wickets in 5 attempts.
For Ireland, it was the Orla Prendergast and Laura Delany show. The duo stitched a 99-run partnership to see their side home. While Prendergast hammered 75 off 45, Delany made a huge difference in fantasy leagues by scoring an unbeaten 36 to go with her solitary wicket of Priyanaz Chatterji.
