Team Scotland

They have been doing very well at the moment. They started the campaign with a thrilling win against Ireland and they won it by just one wicket. Michael Leask had turned things around completely and secured victory out of nowhere. After then they thumped UAE in their 2nd match and the winning margin was a whopping 111 runs.

This boosted their morale and they emerged victorious in the 3rd cricket match against Oman. However, they were outclassed by the mighty Sri Lankans in the 4th match of the group stage. The skipper Richie Berrington has handled the team very well. He has led the team from the front and is the highest run-scorer for his team. Brandon McMullen is doing his all-round duties exceptionally well. Chris Greaves and Mark Watt are bowling some fine spells.

In the last match against Sri Lanka, though they fall short they tried their best against in-form Sri Lanka. Chris Sole, Greaves and Watt were among the wicket-takers and only one batter Chris Greaves could score a half-century. Overall, they have some positives to look into and should be proud of their outing so far. They need more contributions from other batters to set a challenging target.

Team West Indies

They started the campaign positively and were looking like an unstoppable force. They triumphed against Nepal and the USA quite easily but then the real test arrived. It was unexpected to see that they lost against Zimbabwe when the match was under control. Subsequently, in the next match, the Netherlands hurt the Windies here and perhaps dented their qualifying hopes in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023. Their bowling has let them down more. Below Sean Williams, Nicholas Pooran and Shai Hope are the leading run-getters of the team. Alzari Joseph is the only successful bowler so far.

In the last match against the Netherlands, Logan van Beek stole the show with his all-round ability skills. West Indies put in a mammoth total of 374 runs. Pooran scored his 2nd hundred in this tournament. Brandon King and Johnson Charles scored half-centuries. Keemo Paul and the captain Shai Hope scored vital above the 40s to further pose a good total. Overall, West Indies need a lot of improvement and they need to stay positive throughout every single time.

  • M Watt is a crafty left-arm spinner who bowled really well and he could be a good choice in the bowler’s section.
