Current Form Scotland:
Scotland have won their last match against UAE by a big margin of 86 runs.
Scotland batted first and UAE bowlers did a good job to restrict Scotland to a modest total of 254 for 9 in 50 overs.
The man in form Calum MacLeod continued on his merry time and scored 77 in 107 balls. Matthew Cross also played a sensational knock of 85 in 92 balls. Each time, Scotland wanted to press their foot on the accelerator, they lost a wicket. It was never a free flowing innings, thanks to a phenomenal bowling display by UAE bowlers. The lower middle order couldn't really take the attack to the opposition and Scotland were restricted to 254 for 9 in 50 overs.
During the chase, UAE openers Muhammad Waseem and Aryan Lakra provided their team a stable start and both added 25 runs in 3 overs before Waseem was dismissed by Hamza Tahir. His dismissal triggered a collapse in the UAE top order and UAE went from 25 for 0 to 69 for 5. Vriitya Aravind played cautiously and tried his best with a knock of 50 in 85 balls but it was not enough as the required run rate was always mounting up. There were little contributions by the lower order batters like Kashif Daud but UAE never looked in a winning position. They were bowled out for 168 by the end of the 41st over and lost the match by 86 runs.
