Pakistan to face Scotland on the 41st Match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at 8 pm Bangladeshi time Tonight.
Pakistan was the first side to reach the semi-finals, winning four consecutive games, including a ten-wicket triumph against archrival India.The victories against New Zealand and Afghanistan had their share of nerves, but Asif Ali's red-hot cameos carried them through. Aside from that, Pakistan's World Cup campaign had rarely been as clinical and assertive in a generation.
For Pakistan, the match against Scotland provides an opportunity to stretch their muscles and iron out any kinks before the semi-finals.Hasan Ali hasn't exactly lived up to expectations with the ball this tournament, though he did return to form against Namibia, and Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf have taken up the fast bowling duties.
Scotland's Super 12s trip has been heartbreakingly disappointing after a superb qualification.A 130-run loss to Afghanistan was followed by a surrender against Namibia, and although they ran New Zealand close, they were thrashed by India.
They have never come close to winning a single game and will want to finish their season on a high note.
Because dew has been a problem on occasion, the team that wins the toss has tended to field first. The weather in Sharjah stays warm, but as the evening approaches, the temperature begins to fall somewhat.

1 Babar Azam (capt), 2 Mohammad Rizwan (wk), 3 Fakhar Zaman, 4 Mohammad Hafeez/Haider Ali, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Asif Ali, 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Imad Wasim, 9 Hasan Ali/Mohammad Nawaz, 10 Haris Rauf, 11 Shaheen Shah Afridi.
