T20 World Cup 2021: New Zealand vs Scotland Probable XI

Topic: T20 World Cup 2021

New Zealand to face Scotland on the 32nd Match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at 4 pm Bangladeshi time Today.

Kane Williamson was a year away from making his international debut when Scotland last met New Zealand in a T20I in 2009. Devon Conway was a struggling age-group cricketer attempting to get into South Africa's franchise system. Mark Chapman was thinking about a career with Hong Kong. Daryl Mitchell was considering a career in rugby. Adam Milne was yet to make his first-class debut.

Scotland's captain, Kyle Coetzer, was a vital hitter back then, as he is now. Calum MacLeod was and still is their middle-order lynchpin.

Scotland have had five days off to sit back and reflect on what they've achieved. Critics may say that they've run out of steam after racing to three victories in the first round, but it doesn't take much to see how they've defied the odds - pandemic, money crisis, and player attrition, to name a few - to get to this point.

New Zealand is quietly confident after rebounding from a setback to Pakistan. By rejecting India in the same manner.

Pitch conditions

After hosting non-stop cricket since the IPL in September, the Dubai surfaces have slowed tremendously, but the one noticeable difference on Wednesday will be the lack of dew due to the day game.
