Scotland vs Pakistan 2nd T20 Match Preview

Considered one of the finest T20 outfits in the world at the moment, the Pakistan side currently rules the ICC’s Men’s T20I Team Rankings as the number one ranked team in this format. The rise to the top for Pakistan, a side not normally known for excellence in the shorter formats of the game, has been remarkable but not totally unexpected due to the success of their own Twenty20 League tournament, the Pakistan Super League.

Cricket in Scotland has a strong following and with the hosts having played well in recent times to attain a ranking just below a more established side such as Bangladesh, the Pakistan side under the leadership of Sarfaraz Ahmed will be under no illusions as to the quality of opposition they will face and could easily discover to their discomfort that the Scottish side will be no pushovers.
