New Zealand and Scotland are set to lock horns in Match No.32 of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Wednesday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. The Kiwis, led by Kane Williamson, started their campaign with a five-wicket loss at the hands of Pakistan in Sharjah.

However, the Black Caps made a comeback with a thumping eight-wicket win over India on Sunday. Another victory will further strengthen their chances of qualifying for the semis. Scotland, on the other hand, are placed at the bottom of the table in Group 2 and need a victory to climb the ladder.

New Zealand bowling attack which is led by the dangerous experienced duo - Trent Boult & Tim Southee - didn't look as effective as their potential against Pakistan. However, Boult & Southee, accompanied by Neesham, Santner & Sodhi can trouble Scottish batters.

New Zealand are clear favourites to win this match against Scotland since NZ is coming into this match with a win while Scotland is still searching for its first win in the Super 12 stage.
