Preview:

The second match of the Super Sixes, between Scotland and United Arab Emirates at Queens Park Club in Bulawayo, should make for a fascinating contest. Both sides have had a contrasting ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 so far. While Scotland have been clinical in all their group games, winning three and tying their last encounter with Zimbabwe, UAE have blown hot and cold, with impressive performances against the Netherlands and Windies, but a big 226-run loss (DLS method) in their last game against Ireland. On the face of it, Scotland seem better placed. Their bowlers have stood up on every occasion, and they are the only team to have bowled out their opposition in each of the four games. Their batters too have responded competently and got the job done on most occasions. UAE, though, have been unpredictable so far and it is this unpredictable nature that makes them a threat. In their opening game, they brushed aside PNG by 56 runs (DLS method) and in the second encounter against Windies, despite giving away 357/4, the batters fought valiantly to get to 297/6. Then came a convincing six-wicket victory over the Netherlands, which was followed by the meek surrender against Ireland. Coming into the Super Sixes carrying no points, they will have to be at their best to topple a side of the calibre of Scotland and keep alive their hopes of progression. One thing in their favour is the nature of the pitch. Queens Park Club has been known to aid turn, and with Rohan Mustafa in prime form, spin might trouble the Scottish side. The other headache for Scotland is the form of their opener Matthew Cross, who has scores of 18, 2, 14 and 13 so far in the tournament. Despite the bowlers restricting the opposition to relatively low scores, bar the opening game against Afghanistan, Scotland have lost too many wickets in chases. In the business end of the tournament, there will be no room for mistakes.Scotland will once again rely on their bowlers, Alasdair Evans, Tom Sole, Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif and Richie Berrington, to come up with the goods. With batsmen from both sides struggling, it might come down to which team bowls better that decides the fate of this Super Six encounter.
