Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
UAE colts got off to a good start to their campaign in ICC Under-19 World Cup by winning their opening game against Canada colts. But, they suffered two back to back defeats that ruled them out from the race of quarterfinals. Now, they have a big opportunity to outclass out-of-form Scotland in the upcoming game. For them, Jonathan Figy has done impressive job with the bat.
He is the leading run-scorer for his side in the ongoing tournament. The left-handed batsman has muscled 138 runs in his three outings with one brilliant ton. He will have to bolster some good runs that will help his team in winning the upcoming clash. Meanwhile, their bowling line-up looks quite stable that will look to continue with the same.
Scotland is still due to taste their first win in the mega-event. They have failed in leaving their mark in the ongoing tournament. They certainly have to lift the level of their game if they want to win the match against UAE. Their players have flopped in giving up to the mark performances in the ongoing tournament.
The weather will be cloudy on the matchday but there are no chances of rain. The wind is expected to blow at a rate of 13 and 15 km/hr whereas the temperature is expected to hover between 16 and 32 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Witrand Cricket Field is expected to heavily go in favour of the bowlers, who will get a lot of help from the wicket. The batsmen will have a tough time facing fast bowling spearheads. In three games played on this ground, on two occasions the side batting failed in playing full fifty overs. It is expected that the side winning the toss will look to field first in order to take full advantage of the bowling friendly conditions.
Average first innings score: 180 (Three matches played at this venue in the ICC Under-19 World Cup)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 1
