Scotland have won an important toss in their first game of T20 World Cup 2024 against England and have decided to bat first in Barbados. The first game was a venue was a low-scoring affair and Scotland would be hoping that they get a good score on the board and put pressure on their big neighbours.

For England, Jofra Archer is playing this game which is a big positive for the defending champions and let's see how England go about their business after disappointing 50-over World Cup in India. 

ENG vs SCO: Playing XIs

Scotland Playing XI: George Munsey, Michael Alexander Jones, Brandon McMullen, Richard Berrington (C), Matthew Henry Cross (WK), Michael Alexander Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Bradley James Currie, Bradley Wheal

England Playing XI: Jos Buttler (C & WK), Philip Salt, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali (vc), Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

England have a powerful batting line-up with Phil Salt and Jos Buttler opening the innings. They have opted for two bowlers with extreme pace - Jofra Archer and Mark Wood while Chris Jordan is their specialist death bowler. Adil Rashid is the specialist spinner while Moeen Ali and Livingstone are also handy tweakers.

Scotland too have some experienced heads in their line-up and George Munsey at the top of the order will be key for them. Mark Watt and Chris Greaves will also have to play a big role with their spin-bowling and let's see how things pan out at Kensington Oval today.
