India got their campaign back on track by decimating the Afghanistan side by 66 runs in their 3rd Match of the Super 12 stages of the 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup. And, in the words of Rohit Sharma, India has not become a bad team overnight after 2 losses in their first 2 matches to Pakistan and New Zealand.

And now, India will take on Scotland in the 37th Match of the tournament. In their previous match, the Indian side produced a clinical performance to thrash Mohammad Nabi and his men. India posted a total of 210/2, with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul going berserk, putting on a 140-run partnership for the opening wicket.

Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya then joined in and put on a sensational 63-run stand for the third wicket off just 3.3 overs. Afghanistan could only manage to post a total of 144/7 on the board and fell short in every department of the game. Mohammed Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin scalped 5 wickets together with the ball.

Scotland, on the other hand, has lost all their 3 matches in the Super 12 stages of the tournament, and are languishing at the last spot in the points table. Scotland went down to the New Zealand outfit by just 16 runs in their previous encounter.

Batting first, New Zealand scored 172/5 in their allotted 20 overs, with Martin Guptill cutting loose, scoring 93 off 56 deliveries. In reply, the Scotland side ended up with a total of 156/5 on the board, with Michael Leask scoring a whirlwind 42*.

India will surely start as the overwhelming favourites in this clash and will look to post another huge victory. Scotland, on their part, will look to spring a surprise on Virat Kohli and his men.
