Will Scotland be able to put aside their differences and cause an upset at the Grange Cricket Club - Edinburgh, or will they suffer yet another loss at the hands of New Zealand?
New Zealand will want to maintain their domination in the second T20I at the Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh after defeating Scotland in the first series.
The first T20i was lost by the hosts to New Zealand by a score of 68 runs. This time, they will try again with better results in the second T20i.
They have suffered their sixth straight loss in this format, and tensions are increasing among them. They will need to return for the second series stronger and more self-assured.
They have suffered a reputational hit as a result as the hosts haven't been able to defeat New Zealand in previous head-to-head games, and it's likely that they won't succeed in doing so in the second T20I as well.
Since their bowling unit and spinners are now their weakest link, they must develop those areas going into this match under Berrington's leadership and focus on winning the second T20I.
Scotland Probable Starting XI
Richie Berrington (c), George Munsey, Calum MacLeod, Ollie Hairs, Matthew Cross (wk), Michael Leask, Safyaan Sharif, Hamza Tahir, Mark Watt, Chris Greaves, Chris Sole.
Following their outstanding performance against Scotland in the first series, New Zealand is ecstatic after securing a comfortable victory of 68 runs to absolutely demolish Scotland on their home field.
The fact that they had excellent batsmen on their team made it clear from the minute they took the first pitch that they would win, and they'll be hoping to pull off another surprise when they play in the second series.
Many players performed admirably in the first series, including Finn Allen, who amassed 85 runs and hit his first T20I century before being bowled by Mark Watt, and Guptill, who amassed 85 runs in a first-wicket partnership before being removed.
New Zealand Probable Starting XI
Mitchell Santner (c), Martin Guptill, Finn Allen, Dane Cleaver (wk), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner, Lockie Ferguson.
Expert Betting Tips
Since they performed admirably in the first T20I, it is not surprising that New Zealand is the favorite to defeat Scotland this time in the second T20I.
My focus is squarely on Martin Guptill this time around. He amassed 85 runs with Allen in the first series, putting up an impressive performance, and I anticipate him to continue dominating in the second series, so I'm going with the batter runs to be above 28.5.
