Match Prediction ICC U19 World Cup 11th Place Playoff - Scotland U19 v Zimbabwe U19


The 11th Place Playoff of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 will be played between Scotland U19 and Zimbabwe U19 at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley.

Scotland had an underwhelming performance as they finished at the bottom of Group C. The team lost all of their three matches by huge margins which is what earned them a net run rate of -4.804.

The team was then part of the plate quarter final 4 against United Arab Emirates which they won by a comfortable margin of 7 wickets despite some great bowling from Daniel Cairns who picked up four wickets from 7 overs while bowling at an economy of under five. There was some measured bowling on display from Jasper Davidson and Calum Grant as UAE scored 249 runs.

In return, the Scottish batsmen who had been struggling to step up their game till now came good. Opener Syed Shah was the top scorer with 71 while wicketkeeper Tomas Mackintosh also struck a half-century.

Zimbabwe finished the group stage of the ICC under 19 World Cup 2020 at the 3rd spot in Group C. The team won one and lost two of their games. They finished with two points and a net run rate of + 0.478.

They were part of quarter final 3 in which they beat Canada by a big margin of 95 runs. Their main contributors with the bat were Taurayi Tugwete and Gareth Chirawu and centurion Emmanuel Bawa.

Nkosilathi Nungu, Gareth Chirawu and Sakhumuzi Ndlela were on point with the ball and picked up two wickets each while being miserly.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Scotland U19 - Angus Guy (c), Tomas Mackintosh (wk), Daniel Cairns, Jamie Cairns, Jasper Davidson, Kess Sajjad, Liam Naylor, Syed Shah, Ben Davidson, Charlie Peet, Sean Fischer-Keogh
