Scotland and Zimbabwe are playing out a three-match T20I series. The first T20 international of the series is being hosted at Grange Cricket Club, in Edinburgh on September 15, Wednesday. I have handpicked three of the best betting tips from the SCO vs ZIM 1st T20I match prediction.
Zimbabwe heads to Scotland for a three-match T20I series. This is the first international cricket to be played in Scotland since 2019. The two sides last faced each other in the ICC T20 World Cup in 2016 where the match ended with Zimbabwe thrashing the Scots at Nagpur. Since Scotland will be heading into a T20I fixture after what looks like an interval of over a year's time, this will be an opportunity for them to play a full member county before they head out for the T20 World Cup. Scotland is ranked 14th on the ICC T20 world Cup ranking. They have played at least 8 matches less than all the teams above them during this scoring period.
Zimbabwe comes into the series on the back of a five-match T20I series against Ireland. Zimbabwe played well in patches, eventually losing the series by 3-2. The two Zimbabwe wins were both very close and low-scoring matches. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, is ranked 11th in the ICC T20 ranking. However, considering the fact that Zimbabwe are a more experienced team in the shorter format it will be worth backing them for a win. As for now, take a look at the top three betting tips accumulated from the Scotland vs Zimbabwe match betting tips.
The affiliates have not yet come up with markets for the forthcoming fixture. However keep an eye out for the same closer to the dates. Meanwhile after a careful analysis of the individual teams past performances, we have picked out the top three SCO vs ZIM player betting tips for you./span>
The Zimbabwe captain has been in the most top-notch form in his recent games. He is coming off some pretty impressive knocks against Ireland in the most recent series. Ervine concluded the T20I match against Ireland as the highest T20I run getter from his squad. He finished with 160 runs from the 5 innings played at a decent average of 40.00. In fact his scores in the five matches are - 67*, 28, 33, 15 and 17.
The middle-order batsman has played 6 T20I matches in the 2021 season and averages at 38.80. From these 6 innings Ervine has made 194 runs so far. Ervine has not played a match against Scotland in his career so far and this will be his first encounter with the Scottish team. Craig Ervine's career revolves around 696 T20I runs notched from 31 matches played at an average of 24.85. Ervine also holds an adequate record from the 16 away innings that he has played. He has hammered 532 runs from the 8 matches played which averages 35.46. Dafabet.com is offering odds of 1.87 for Craig Ervine to score over 24.5 runs..Bet On Craig Ervine!Claim 100% Bonus!
One of the top batters from the Scottish squad is the top-order batsman, George Munsey. Scotland has a number of batters rated in the top 100 in T20 World Cricket and Geroge Munsey is ranked 18th among them. Since Geroge Munsey's debut in 2015, Munsey has played 38 matches in the shortest format. He has scored 987 runs from the 36 innings at an average of 29.90. Munsey last played T20I cricket in the 2019 season. He batted in 15 matches and hammered 526 runs from them at an average of 37.57. He has had an exemplary record with three half-centuries and one century in the 2019 season. The Scottish opening batsman has played 23 matches under the captaincy of Kyle Coetzer and scored 780 runs at an average of 35.45. While opening for his side, Munsey has notched 890 runs from 33 matches at an average of 28.70. Dafabet.com is offering odds of 4.10 for Munsey to come out as Scotlands top batsman in the SCO vs IRE match prediction.Bet On George Munsey!Claim 100% Bonus!
Last but not the least, we have the opening batsman of Zimbabwe, Wessley Madhevere. The Zimbabwe all rounder is the top T20I batsman in the last one year. He has played 16 innings at an average of 26.73 with 401 runs from them. Irrespective of the same, Madhevere's performance in recent times has been abysmal. As a matter of fact in the recently concluded match against Ireland, Madhevere was dismissed for a solitary run in the 1st T20I followed by 21, 13, 6, and 9 in the following four matches.
Like Craig Ervine, this will be the first time that Madhevere will be facing the Scottish squad. Wesley Madhevere had started his 2021 season with two low scoring points against Afghanistan where he was sent back for 2 and 7 runs in the two innings played respectively. He continued the same momentum while playing a three-match series against Pakistan but went on to mend ways while playing against Bangladesh earlier in July. The 21-year-old batter has been pretty inconsistent between the wickets and considering his most recent endeavour he is likely to underperform in the series opener as well. Dafabet.com is offering odds of 1.87 for Wesley Madhevere to score under 20.5 runs.Bet On Wesley Madhevere!Claim 100% Bonus!
