Afghanistan is the favorite here but Scotland have been good in qualifier matches. Afghanistan came here with after too many Visa issues. Their core strength is bowling, they have been very impressive with bowling from last few years. We can't under estimate Scotland as well. We have seen how they have reached Super 12.
Afghanistan former captain Mohammad Nabi was exceptional in the warmup game against West Indies, he bowled 4 overs and conceded on 2 runs with 22 dot balls. It is not easy to bowl West Indies batsmen, we know how destructive batsmen they have.
On the other hand Scotland seamer Josh Davey have been very consistent in the qualifier matches, their batting team is good so far.
This could be a game between good bowling Vs cool batting performers.
Our prediction is Afghanistan will win today's match.
