Hello and Welcome to our preview for Scotland versus Pakistan 1st T20I match. We are covering SCO vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the first match of the T20 series.
After upsetting the world number 1 ODI side England, Scotland is now against the number one T20 side Pakistan.
Scotland would be high on confidence, after scoring a mammoth 371 runs they succeed to defend that total.
Pakistan are coming here after a 2 match test series against England in which they have won the first match but have to face defeat in the second one. But in the shortest format of the game, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men are nearly as invincible as they have won the last four bi-lateral T20I series.
