Match 19 of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 will see two in-form sides West Indies and Scotland clash in the penultimate first-round Group B match. Both undefeated teams will lock horns at the Queen Sports Club in Bulawayo, which will decide who finishes on top of Group B with both teams having already qualified for Super Sixes. 

Team Preview: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka in this tournament have bullied their opponents, having notched up dominating wins. One of the main reasons behind their success has been all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, who is also the competition's leading wicket-taker (16). With Test skipper Dimuth Karunaratne leading charge, the batting, too, has looked solid and shows no signs of slowing down, unless they get complacent. 

Team Preview: Scotland

Scotland after their narrow last-ball win in their Group B opener against Ireland, have played formidable cricket, and have managed to shock their more experienced counterparts. Leading the way is skipper Richard Berrington, who has been the backbone of their batting, which resolves around several hard-hitting batters. Michael Leask and Brandon McMullen in particular have been terrific. McMullen apart from scoring big runs, is also the side's leading wicket-getter (7).
