USA, who are at the bottom of their group, will face Scotland in Playoff 1 for the fourth place of the ICC U19 T20 World Cup 2023 at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on January 20, Friday. These two teams faced each other in their opening contest of this World Cup.
The United States has won one match as of now out of the four matches. They registered their first win in this World Cup against UAE in their second match, winning by 31 runs. The two left-handers from the team seem as promising young talents as they have been consistently performing though the results didn’t go in the team’s favor. Snigdha Paul top scored with 17 runs in their last encounter against Australia and has been contributing to the team in bowling as well. Laasya Mullapudi was another only batter to get to a double-digit score other than Snigdha in their previous encounters.
Scotland, on the other hand, is on the same page as the USA by winning only one match as of now. They registered their only win against the USA in their opening contest, which has been a downfall in their graph as they have suffered three continuous losses thereon. Katherine Fraser the captain of the Scotland team, is a player to watch out for her exceptional bowling performance against South Africa, where she claimed 25/3 in her four overs. Emma Walsingham has been the top run scorer for the team and has been the only player to register double-digit scores in every contest.
