ENG vs SCO Dream11 prediction: Best fantasy picks for England vs Scotland T20 World Cup 2024 match

England, the defending champions, will kick off their ICC Men's T20 World Cup campaign against Scotland in Barbados on Tuesday, June 4. England haven't played Scotland in a T20I before and it will also be an attempt for England to get a win over a fellow European nation in the format.

England and Scotland will kick off a new chapter in a long-standing rivalry, that transcends borders, literally. Sharing a lot of history together, this is the first time England will be playing Scotland in a T20I and that too in a World Cup match no less. England start as overwhelming favourites but odds are less tilted in one side's favour heavily because of the fickle nature of the format.

Scotland knocked out West Indies in the last T20 World Cup, and that was their only win in the tournament Down Under. England ended up winning the tournament but lost to Ireland on their way. That was England's third loss to an European nation in T20Is, all in the World Cup. So, surprisingly, England would have that one small monkey to get rid of, off their back. However, England have the form and pedigree with them but Scotland can't be counted out.

With the players that played in those two games against Pakistan, it seems Sam Curran may not be part of the first XI as England have chosen to go with a frontline seamer which means that the batting ends at 7. Yes, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan all can wield their willow but England would have to be just a bit careful, especially with the weakness of the middle order including Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone against spin.
