In the first match of the Group A of ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers, West Indies and Scotland will be taking on each other. The times will look to begin their campaign on a strong note in order to have an added advantage of making it to the Super 12 stage of the tournament. 

It is disheartening to see West Indies, the two time T20 World Champions playing the qualification round. But off late the team chemistry has just not worked for them. On the other hand, Scotland is coming into the tournament with a decent form behind them and will try and pull up an upset like Namibia did in the opening clash of the tournament. 

Match Details

Match: ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Group B Match 3, West Indies vs Scotland

Date & Time: Oct 17, 2022, 9:30 AM (IST)

Pitch Report: There will be an added advantage for the batter on the Bellerive Oval pitch. It is often known to be a high scoring ground. With the West Indian batting involved in the match, a high scoring affair can be expected. Notably, 3 T20I matches have been played on the ground previously, out of which 2 has been won by the team batting first. 

Probable XIs

West Indies XI

Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (c & wk), Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Raymon Reifer, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy, Sheldon Cottrell

Scotland XI

George Munsey, Calum MacLeod, Michael Jones, Richie Berrington (c), Josh Davey, Matthew Cross (wk), Craig Wallace, Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, and Chris Greaves


West Indies on the papers looks like a much stronger team than Scotland. Players like George Munsey, Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod might test the Caribbeans but, West Indies with a much more balanced team composition should emerge victorious in this match.
