Match- 1, Scotland vs Singapore
Scotland has a strong unit overall. The batting has the firepower with the likes of Munsey, Coetzer, Cross and Macleod forming a formidable setup. Richie Berrington is more than a handy all-rounder. Ollie Hairs is also in pretty impressive form. There is depth as well as even Leask can wield the willow to good effect. In the bowling unit, Tahir will be key and will need support from Sharif, Neill and others.

Singapore’s show with the bat will mostly depend on their opening trio of Rohan Rangarajan, Surendran Chandramohan and Tim David. Manpreet Singh can hit the big shots as well. Dutta and Param are no mugs with the bat either. In the bowling area, Amjad Mahboob and Janak Prakash can crank up the pace significantly. Vinoth Baskaran and spinner Selladore Vijaykumar are important aspects as well.
