Calum MacLeod recent stats in T20Is

With Kyle Coetzer retired, MacLeod took up the responsibility to open the innings for Scotland. He scored a decnet 33 off just 24 balls in the tall chase of 226 to provide the team with a good start. However, he would love to convert his start into a big one in the second T20I and soon, Scotland will look better to post or chase a big total.

Mark Watt recent stats in T20Is

Mark Watt is always known for his strict line and length and his bowling attributes were once again on show during the first T20I. While the rest of the bowlers were going for many, he went for just 32 runs in his four-over spell and also picked up a wicket of centurion Finn Allen. A lot will depend on how Watt performs in the final game.

New Zealand Playing 11

  • New Zealand won the first T20I by 68 runs and there is no reason for them to make any changes to their playing XI unless there are last-minute injuries.

Martin Guptill stats in T20Is

 Despite Finn Allen’s century, Guptill remains a key player at the top of the order. He has looked good with the bat throughout this European tour and a big knock seems to be just around the corner. In the first game, he scored a sparkling 40 but was overshadowed by Allen’s brilliant. Expect the veteran to come up with a big score in this game.

Ish Sodhi stats in T20Is

 Ish Sodhi always manages to pack a punch with his bowling. He loves to perform and his leg-spin, more often than not, works wonders for the Kiwis. The man returned with the figures of 4/28 in the series opener and expect him to run through the Scottish line-up yet again.

Who will win Scotland vs New Zealand 2nd T20I today match?

 Scotland were never the favourites to win the first T20I. But they were blown away by Finn Allen with his attacking batting. Their bowlers had no idea what was happening and looked out of sorts. However, now that they have got an idea, the Scottish cricketers are expected to put up a better show in this game.

New Zealand, meanwhile, will be the overwhelming favourites to win this series 2-0. Well, the question will only be of the margin of victory for them. The Kiwis are keen on being ruthless since the Ireland series and expect them to get the job done yet again.

New Zealand and Scotland have faced each other in three T20Is so far and on all occasions, the Kiwis have emerged victorious.

New Zealand should be able to win this series 2-0.
