The 20th match of the ICC U19 T20 World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Scotland on January 18. India being at the top of the points table in Group D, will look to carry forward the same winning momentum throughout the tournament. Being in a not-so-competitive group, things remain easy for India as of now to qualify as the top two teams.
In their previous encounter against UAE, India registered a massive win with a margin of 122 runs. Indian Captain Shafali Verma and Shweta Sehrawat, being considered a dynamic duo for India, built a 150-run opening partnership which made it easy for India to set a target of 220. They will look to continue the same aggressive approach in all the departments as they are one of the favourites to lift the World Cup this edition.
Scotland being one of the least dominant teams this edition, will look to register their first win in this tournament. As we have already witnessed Bangladesh, the so-called underdogs in international tournaments beating the top tier team Australia, it is also possible for Scotland to leave an impact in this tournament by beating a leading team like India. They will look to put up a good fight though they have been defeated twice in the tournament already. Emma Walsingham is a player to watch out for from the Scotland squad, as she has been performing consistently irrespective of the results.
