Afghanistan and Scotland will play in the 17th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. We will cover AFG vs SCO Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


Afghanistan played the ICC T20I World Cup for the first time in 2010, and their best achievement to date has been to qualify into Super 10. They have improved a lot and are currently at the 8th position on the T20I rankings.

Hazratullah Zazai and Shahzad, both openers, are aggressive players who provide a great start and risk getting out early. At No.3, Gurbaz will continue the tone set by the openers. The middle-order comprises Najibullah Zadran, Asghar Afghan, and Karim Janat. Skipper Nabi will be the finisher but can also come up with the order depending on the requirement.

The bowlers have a lot of experience as they have played several T20 leagues across the globe. Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be the significant wicket-takers. Naveen ul Haq and Karim Janat will handle the pace department, but they can also add Hamid Hasan.

Afghanistan has a good chance of winning against Scotland in their first match of the tournament.


Scotland won all three matches in the qualifier stage and qualified for Super 12 for the first time in T20I World Cup history.  

The opening pair finally gave an excellent start to the team as Munsey and Coetzer scored 20 and 41 runs, respectively. Matthew Cross and Richie Berrington are consistently scoring runs and have won two matches for the team. 

The bowlers have the critical factor in all three matches for Scotland. Josh Davey has bowled brilliantly in the last two games. Safyaan Sharif and Michael Leask picked up two wickets each. Bradley and Greaves went wicketless in the previous game.

Scotland is in great form, and it won’t be a surprise if they win the match against Afghanistan.
