Afghanistan vs Scotland Highlights Today, 8 Mar 2016 – T20

Afghanistan team bad luck may not remain in T20 World Cup 2016 like Asia Cup. Today T20 World Cup 2nd match will be played between AFG v Scot at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur (India), Tuesday 8th March 2016. In 2015 Afghanistan team t20 matches performance was top of the world because they won thirteen matches out of sixteen in one year. Now they reach in ICC T20 world cup 2016 and they are ready to show good games today and next matches.

Hamid Hassan is back in Afghanistan’s squad for the first time since July 2015 and bowled his full quota of four overs against the Netherlands. Whether they play both Hamid and Shapoor Zadran, who has also returned after a long spell out of the side, could depend on the pitch, with left-arm spinner Amir Hamza likely to take one of their places if the turn is expected. Scotland has a fairly settled line-up, and the composition of their bowling attack could depend on conditions, with the No. 7 slot looking like a toss-up between Rob Taylor’s left-arm seam and Michael Leask’s off-spin.

Afghanistan team: Mohammad Shahzad†, Noor Ali Zadran, Asghar Stanikzai*, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Samiullah Shenwari, Najibullah Zadran, Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Shafiqullah, Amir Hamza
Scotland team: KJ Coetzer, HG Munsey, CS MacLeod, MW Machan, RD Berrington, PL Mommsen*, MH Cross†, JH Davey, SM Sharif, MRJ Watt, AC Evans

Pitch and weather report

The strip laid out for the India-South Africa Test in November earned the VCA Stadium an official warning from the ICC. It’s unlikely that the surfaces hosting the World T20 games will provide the spinners remotely as much assistance. ODI totals at the ground are a more reliable indicator of what to expect – in 14 innings, teams have crossed 290 ten times.
