SCO vs NED, ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 Warm-up Match 4
Date and Time: 12th October 2021, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: ICC Academy Ground No 2, Dubai
A good batting track awaits the two sides with some help on offer for the pacers. The new ball should do a bit early on, keeping the batters on their toes. As the match progresses, the spinners will come into play, although there isn't much turn on offer. The pacers will look to take the pace off, which is a handy ploy at the venue. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 160 being a good total on this ground.
Today’s SCO vs NED Dream11 match top picks
Matt Cross: Although Matt Cross has been a vital cog in Scotland's set-up, he isn't in the best of form, largely due to him batting lower down the order. With Ollie Hairs down with injury concerns, Cross could be in for an extended stay in the top order, making him a good pick for your SCO vs NED Dream11 fantasy team.
Stephan Myburgh: Netherlands veteran Stephan Myburgh is back with the national side and will be eager to contribute at the top of the order. Myburgh is a solid left-hander who can take the bowlers on in the powerplay overs. He should be a good addition to your fantasy team.
Ryan ten Doeschate: Ryan ten Doeschate is one of the better players on the Associate Nations circuit, with the all-rounder averaging in excess of 40 in the format. Ten Doeschate is also quite handy with the ball, making him a must-have in your SCO vs NED Dream11 fantasy team.
Mark Watt: Mark Watt has been Scotland's best bowler over the last few weeks, with the spinner coming up with economical performances in the shorter formats. He also picked up a few wickets in the UAE Summer T20 Bash, holding him in good stead ahead of this much-awaited encounter.
