Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 Play off 3 - Scotland v UAE
The play off 3 of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Scotland and UAE at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.
Scotland, who came into the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 with the reputation of being the favourites, fell short of expectations and ended at the fourth spot in the Group A points table. They had 3 wins and 3 losses from 6 games with six points and a net run rate of +0.258.
Scotland lost their last league match against Netherlands by four wickets and now enter play off 3 while running the risk of missing the 2020 T20 World Cup if they lose this game.
The team could only manage 130 runs from their 20 overs on the back of a half-century from Matthew Cross and then conceded those runs in just 17 overs despite 3 wickets from Mark Watt.
Calum MacLeod, George Munsey and Safyaan Sharif have been major players for Scotland and would be expected to rise to the occasion in this big match.
The team will lock horns against UAE who were beaten by Netherlands in play off 1. UAE had a horror start to the match and were 5 down for just 9 runs. Skipper Ahmad Raza (22) was their top scorer as they skittled out for just 80 and lost by 8 wickets.

Scotland- Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Josh Davey, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Tom Sole, Craig Wallace, Mark Watt, Hamza Tahir
