The 11th match of the 2019 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier between Scotland Women and Bangladesh Women will be hosted by the Forthill in Dundee.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (1:00 PM GMT) (6:30 PM IST).
The hosts Scotland women are on the verge of missing out on the chance of qualifying to the next year’s T20 World Cup. Their loss against Papua New Guinea opened up the Group A. All the four sides will be eyeing to qualify for the semi-final. Bangladesh Women are the opponents for the Scottish side on Tuesday. Bangladesh are in a safe zone having boosted their NRR with a huge win over USA.
They edged past PNG in a rain-affected match on Monday which was played on a reserve day. All they would need to do is to keeping down the NRR as low as possible. At this stage, the Scotland team needs to win this match against Bangladesh and hope PNG doesn’t win by a big margin against the USA. Scotland NRR is currently the second-best among the teams in their group.
The weather continues to trouble the games at the Forthill in Dundee. The rains at this venue nearly got the Bangladesh-PNG match washed out on the reserve day too. The threat remains for the last day of the group stage too. A shortened game is well expected on Tuesday.
Basically, the Forthill has been a venue that suits the slow bowlers. With the game between Scotland and Bangladesh set to be played on a used track, the team winning toss could elect to bat first only. The sides that batted first here have 100% win record.

Probable Playing XIs:
Kathryn Bryce (C), Sarah Bryce, Becky Glen, Ruth Willis, Priyanaz Chatterji, Rachel Scholes, Lorna Jack, Abbi Aitken, Katie McGill, Katherine Fraser, Abtaha Maqsood.

The Bryce sisters – Kathryn and Sarah remain as key players for the fantasy team. The young spinner Katherine Fraser continues to arise her stocks with her bowling. Ritu Moni and Khadija Tul Kubra could be game-changers as they have the ability to score runs as well.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain Options – Kathryn Bryce, Sarah Bryce, Nahida Akter, Fahima Khatun
Vice-Captain Options – Priyanaz Chatterji, Ayasha Rahman, Jahanara Alam, Ritu Moni
Kathryn Bryce is a must as captain or vice-captain. She is carrying her form with both bat and ball from the Kia Super League.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Nigar Sultana, Sarah Bryce
Batters – Sanjida Islam, Lorna Jack, Fargana Hoque
All-Rounders – Kathryn Bryce (C), Priyanaz Chatterji, Ritu Moni
Bowlers – Nahida Akter (VC), Fahima Khatun, Katherine Fraser
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Nigar Sultana, Sarah Bryce
Batters – Becky Glen, Ruth Willis, Sanjida Islam, Ayasha Rahman
All-Rounders – Ritu Moni (VC), Kathryn Bryce (C)
Bowlers – Katherine Fraser, Jahanara Alam, Nahida Akter
Every match seems to show up a new star with the ball for Bangladesh with Nahida Akter seems to be a common name. This makes selection quite tough especially with the venue suitable to their bowling. Fahima Khatun can be a safe option as she scores the runs with the bat if a situation arises.
Scotland Women might edge past Bangladesh Women.
