2nd Match ICC T20 World Cup Afghanistan vs Scotland Live Score Streaming Result 2016: Afghanistan vs Scotland 2nd match fight will be held today in Nagpur and this match is going to be tough vs tough. Afghanistan will definitely try to take over Scotland. Scotland is also not going to lose the qualifying battle of World cup T20.
Afghanistan stands strong both in terms of genuine pace, with an attack compromising Dawlat Zardan and recently recalled double duo of Shapoor Zardan and Hamid Hasan, as well as spin with left-arm darts of Amir Hamza. Scotland has a fair settled line-up, and the composition of their bowling attack could depend on conditions like toss-up between Rob Taylor’s left-arm seam and Michael Leask’s offspin.

Fall of wickets 1-25 (Noor Ali Zadran, 2.5 ov), 2-107 (Mohammad Shahzad, 12.6 ov), 3-128 (Gulbadin Naib, 15.6 ov), 4-133 (Mohammad Nabi, 17.1 ov), 5-158 (Shafiqullah, 19.1 ov)
However, Afghanistan’s batting remains something of a weakness with their line-up often unable to cover early setbacks. That’s why Scotland has best chance to strike with the new ball and put the middle order under pressure.
In the last year, Afghanistan has played 16 T20 Internationals. They have won 13 of them and thus maintain best win-loss ratio than any other team. There is of course a good luck next to these numbers. Afghanistan’s opponents in those 16 matches were United Arab Emirates, Scotland, Hong Kong including Zimbabwe and others but none of those team features in the top ten of the IC T20 rankings.
That’s why there is no smugness when Afghanistan prepares to fight with Scotland. But after qualifying for the Asia cup, they lost with the opponent UAE and thus lose the chance to play with other good teams of Asia cup.
Scotland will start its tough fight for two reasons-the head-to-head record and the conditions. They have only won six of the 25 matches in Asia.
Hamid Hasan is back in Afghanistan’s squad for the first time in July 2015 and bowled his full quota of four overs against Netherlands. They may play both Hamid and shapoor Zardan who has returned after along spell out of the side. It will depend on the pitch with left-arm spinner Amir Hazma may take his palace if return.

Afghanistan is no doubt an un-predicted team like Pakistan as they have won many unforgettable matches and hard ones but they also lost easy ones. Thus AFG needs to struggle more in bowling. Scotland also needs to fight this tough battle of match for world cup T20.
