The probable best batter of the match

George Munsey (Scotland)

George Munsey has scored heavily for Scotland over the period. The southpaw has the potential to play shots right from the outset. The left-hander can take his team off to a flier in the powerplay. In the previous match, Munsey scored 29 off 23 balls with two fours and as many sixes. Oman’s bowling isn’t in the best of form and he can cash in on the same.

Chris Greaves (Scotland)

It won’t be a surprise if Chris Greaves get a promotion in Scotland’s batting lineup. In the previous game, he scored 45 off 28 with four fours and two sixes. He rescued his team from a precarious position after being put in to bat first. Later, with his leg-spin bowling, Greaves got the prized scalps of Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim.
