T20 World Cup: Bangladesh vs Scotland Predictions, Betting Tips and Analysis

T20 World Cup: Bangladesh vs Scotland Predictions, Betting Tips and Analysis

Bangladesh take on Scotland in the second match of the ICC T20 Men’s World Cup at the Al Amerat Cricket Stadium in Muscat on October 17. Bangladesh come into the game as heavy favourites against a Scotland side who are ranked eight places below them in the T20 World Rankings.

Bangladesh are heavy favourites to win this game with bookies rating them at around 1.17 to win this match. Looking through their squad, it’s not that hard to understand why; Shakib Al Hasan is still rated the 2nd best all-rounder in the world in T20 cricket while he’s 9th in the bowler rankings behind team-mate Mustafizur Rahman. However, their batting can be a bit more fragile and if Scotland’s bowlers are in top form it could be much more interesting.

Scotland are rank outsiders to win at 5.00. Although batsman George Munsey is in good form at the moment there is a lack of real class in the team which will make life difficult for them. They have disposed of Papua New Guinea and Netherlands with ease while warming up for the tournament but a hefty defeat to Namibia last Saturday proves that this Scottish team can be inconsistent. Bangladesh are a massive step up and it’s going to take a lot more to get a win in this game.

Match conditions in Oman will probably benefit batsmen; as a warm country which doesn’t have much rain there will probably be little in the air to benefit bowlers which means they will have to generate bounce and turn from the surface.

There is no real value in betting on the winner of the match but there are some interesting markets out there for punters with a bit of cricket knowledge. There are odds of 6.00 against Shakib Al Hasan being top run scorer in the game which sounds promising, although much will depend on where he comes in the order.

The toss is also crucial; should Bangladesh bat second then it’s more than possible that they will only have a small target to chase which will really skew the top run-scorer market. It’s worth a look also at the Top Scotland Run Scorer market; a good tip here would be Callum McLeod who has consistently been posting decent scores for Scotland. At 8.00 he probably presents the best value bet for this match.
