Here are our match prediction and betting tips for the forthcoming Scotland vs West Indies fixture on July 1st.
The super 06 round kicked off and we will find two teams who will place in the remaining two spots for India. Scotland would be pumped after winning 3 consecutive matches in the league stage. It was their first defeat in the league stage against Sri Lanka. The Lankan defeated Scotland by a huge margin of 82 runs.
Scotland is known for surprises like they did against Ireland and they are now close to adding one more glory. The Scottish side missed their main player Richie Berrington’s form in the previous game. They have two points in their pocket and if they beat West Indies, they will be back in the race. They have to play Netherlands and Zimbabwe next so victory on Saturday can assure them a surprise qualification to India.
Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Chris Sole and Chris Greaves are the key players to watch out for in the Scottish side. If someone gets big, they can earn two valuable points.
Meanwhile, West Indies are going through a tough phase in the tournament. Their qualification for the main event looks quite difficult. The 1979 WC winners never missed the event and they were the top competitors in this format. West Indies lost their last 2 games but somehow managed the 5th spot in the Super Six table with 0 points.
Victory against the USA and Nepal boosted their chances. They would avoid any drama and they need to be aware of any surprises after their previous encounter. If West Indies lose here, they will face Oman next and it would be tough for the Caribbean giants to qualify for the final. If they win, a defeat against Oman will still harm them.
West Indies have class ODI players such as Akeal Hosein, Nicholas Pooran, Brandon King and Roston Chase who can contribute very well to earn two points.
Keeping the current squad and ongoing momentum in mind, we are favouring Scotland to win the game.
Venue: Harare Sports Club, Harare
