On Friday, the 12th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will take place, and it will feature a matchup between Scotland and Zimbabwe. This Group B match will take place at the Ground in Bellerive, Australia, as the host venue. The victor of this match will move on to the next stage, which is the Super 12s.
When Scotland beat West Indies by 42 runs in their first game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, they caused an upset and set the stage for the rest of their tournament. They were unable to maintain their winning momentum, as evidenced by the fact that they were defeated by Ireland by a score of six wickets in their next match.
Michael Jones hit a score of 86 at the top of the order while Scotland was batting first, helping the team achieve an impressive total of 176 runs. The Scottish bowlers were unable to provide adequate support for their hitters. When it comes to their final match in the group, the Scottish team will be eager to get back on track against Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe, on the other hand, started off the competition with a dominant 31-run victory over Ireland in their opening match of the competition. In contrast, they were defeated by West Indies by a margin of 31 runs in their subsequent match.
After being given the opportunity to bowl first, Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe took three wickets, helping to bring the West Indies total down to 153 for seven at the end of their 20 overs. The next thing that happened was a poor effort by their batters, as they collapsed and were bundled out on 122.
To be successful against the Scottish team and earn a spot in the Super 12s, Zimbabwe will need to present their best performance possible.

Pitch Report for Scotland’s Match Against Zimbabwe
It seemed like batting would be successful on the pitch at the Bellerive Oval. Once they have found their rhythm in the middle, the batters are able to hit through the line. However, the new ball will have some lateral movement, and the pacers will need to hit the right locations up front in order to score runs.
Predictions for the Weather in Scotland and Zimbabwe
The weather forecast for Hobart calls for temperatures to range anywhere from 14 to 23 degrees Celsius. On Friday, there is a chance that rain will cause delays in the game’s action at various points.
Probable XIs for Scotland’s Match Against Zimbabwe
The Scottish team is a well-balanced squad, and despite the fact that they lost their most recent match, it is anticipated that they will stick with the same starting eleven.
Richie Berrington is the captain of the team, and the other members are Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safiaan Sharif, and Brad Wheal. George Munsey, Michael Jones, and Matthew Cross are the wicket keepers.
