New Zealand take on Scotland in the first game of the day in Dubai. India take on Afghanistan in the second game of the day in Abu Dhabi. The Kiwis beat India in their previous game after losing to Pakistan in their first game. The Kane Williamson-led side is currently placed third on the points table with the best net run rate among all the teams (+0.765).
Scotland have lost both their games so far and with tough matches to play ahead their semi-final hopes look anything but impossible. This has been a huge learning curve for the Scotts who made their way through to the qualifiers playing some very good cricket. They have already lost against Namibia and Afghanistan and play New Zealand in this game. They next take on India and Pakistan in their last two remaining games.
This week we have 3 big games to finish off the @T20WorldCup Super 12s 👇

Pakistan posted 189 against Namibia in the last game played here. This is an indication that captains can opt to bat first here if they are sure to post a big others. Chasing has been the way to go otherwise and it is expected to remain the same. The last seven matches at this venue have been won by the team chasing.
