Defending champions England will face Scotland in the sixth fixture of the 2024 T20 World Cup group stages at Barbados on June 4 from 8:00 PM onwards. 

England happens to be one of the tournament favourites, having won the last edition, whereas Scotland barely managed to qualify for the event after the group expansion.

ENG vs SCO: Team Previews


England cricket team will enter the 2024 T20 World Cup as leading favourites given their squad strength and dominance in the shorter format. 

Led by Jos Buttler, the English side possess a good blend of young blood as well as experienced veterans who together will terrorise the oppositions with their aggressive approach.

Jofra Archer will be making his much-anticipated comeback after a prolonged injury layoff, whereas Harry Brook and Will Jacks could prove to be X factors.

England are also coming off a dominating series win against Pakistan last week, meaning the squad is high on confidence ahead of their tournament opener against an associate team.


Scotland who failed to qualify for the previous edition of 2024 T20 World Cup, managed to get in this time around as the tournament expanded to 20 teams. 

They are placed in Group B alongside Namibia, England, Australia and Oman. While the group is competitive, Scotland will be looking to make the most of their opportunity.

As an associate member, the T20 World Cup is a massive learning experience with Scotland, and regardless of where they finish, Scotland cricket will only thrive after the tournament.

However, despite being an associate team, Scotland cannot be completely ruled out of the contest. Many underdog teams have already impressed so far and perhaps Scotland could end up producing a surprise as well.
