What happens when every team is equally poised in the points table, and you have got everything to play for? There are thrillers everywhere, and this one will be no different. It is the 12th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, and Scotland will be crashing against Zimbabwe at Bellerive Oval, Hobart.

The Scottish side is coming off a defeat against the Irish, however, their first victory against the West Indies will give them confidence for this match. The only thing they need to do is win now to make sure they progress to the next stage, irrespective of the result of the other game.

On the flip side, Zimbabwe were humbled by the Windies in the last game by the same margin they got better of Ireland in the first match. Their performance has been incredible in recent times, where they have gotten better off Australia and given some tough competition to India, albeit in a different format, but you expect them to provide another valiant performance if Sikandar Raza goes well.

It is so unpredictable for this contest that any prediction could easily fail. While the Scottish side is highly competitive, the Zimbabweans have displayed the results on the field. However, it looks like the African nation would triumph in the encounter.
