T20 World Cup: Pakistan opt to bat against Scotland


Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat in their Men's T20 World Cup Super 12 match against Scotland in Sharjah on Sunday.

"We are not complacent. We are looking to carry on with our momentum," said Pakistan captain Babar Azam. "People back home love cricket a lot and they are supporting us. We are trying to make them happy with our performances."

Scotland skipper Kyle Coetzer said, "We've been looking forward to these games and we'll be going out there today to give our best. We have to test ourselves against the best. Coming into the tournament, we came in believing that we are capable of competing against the best and we'll still believe that. But we have to go through these kinds of tests. Hopefully in our journey we've inspired a few people in Scotland and around the world too."

Pakistan went in with an unchanged side while Scotland made two changes to the playing XI for the Group 2 game.
