DUBAI – Unbeaten Pakistan is all set to take on Scotland in the teams’ final Super 12 game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, eying their fifth win in a row.
With incredible performance in the opening days of the tournament, Pakistan has become the the first team to confirm their place in the semi-final.
Now, having enjoyed a break of four days, Pakistan squad can use the match against Scotland to get back into tournament mode and polish their plans ahead of the knockout stages.
Although their place in the top two is confirmed, a win over Scotland will ensure they get the top place in Group 2, and take on the second place finisher in Group 1 in the semis.
For Scotland, it’s another chance to learn from the best team. Since their win against Bangladesh in their first game of round one, they haven’t been able to challenge the strong sides as consistently as they might have liked in the Super 12 stage.
