Afghanistan will face Scotland in match number 17 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket
Stadium on Monday. The game will be played as part of the Group 2 encounters in the Super 12
round of the ICC event. The Afghanistan vs Scotland clash will begin at 7:30 PM IST and 6 PM local time.
Former Australia captain Steve Smith, who was handed a one-year ban for ball-tampering, played down the lighter ban of four matches given to West Indian wicket-keeper batsman Nicholas Pooran for a similar offence.
Afghanistan and West Indies, two of the teams who have been knocked out of the World Cup 2019, will look to finishing their disappointing campaign on a high when taking on each other in match number 42 at Headingley in Leeds.
On a high after beating South Africa and New Zealand, Pakistan would be looking to continue their winning run and keep their semi-final hopes alive when they face Afghanistan. The latter, on the other hand, would be seeking to play spoilsport by trying to cause an upset.
