Match Prediction ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 - Zimbabwe U19 v Scotland U19
The 22nd match of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 will be played between Zimbabwe U19 and Scotland U19 at the Witrand Cricket Field in Potchefstroom.
Zimbabwe are coming off a 38-run loss against Pakistan in their last match. Dylan Grant was their most impressive bowler while Wesley Madhevere and Milton Shumba notched up half-centuries.
Their first match of the tournament was reduced to 22 overs per side in which Zimbabwe suffered a 9-wicket defeat against Bangladesh. The team was struggling at 137-6 from 28 overs when rain came down and the overs had to be curtailed.
Milton Shumba, Emmanuel Bawa, Tadiwanashe Marumani and Dane Schadendorf were their major contributors with the bat. During their bowling, only Wesley Madhevere could contain the opposition batsmen as the rest of them leaked badly. As a result, they lost the game by 9 wickets in just 11.2 overs.
They will take on Scotland who suffered a 7-wicket defeat against Pakistan in their first league match of the ICC under 19 World Cup 2020. They lost their last match against Bangladesh by 7 wickets. After getting bowled out for just 75 in the first game, the team folded up for 89 in last match.
Sean Fischer-Keogh was their most impressive bowler. Skipper Tomas Mackintosh and Syed Shah are their only two batsmen who have been able to hold their own in the tournament.

Zimbabwe U19 - Wesley Madhevere, Milton Shumba, Dion Myers (c), Luke Oldknow, Emmanuel Bawa, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Dane Schadendorf (wk), Tadiwanashe Nyangani, Dylan Grant, Taurayi Tugwete, Sakhumuzi Ndlela
