NED vs SCO: Scotland would look to keep their unbeaten track record against Netherlands when the two sides meet in the Oman Quadrangular T20I curtain raiser at Al Amarat. The Scottish side will start as the prime contender to win the four-nation tournament. They have a good mix of youth and experience in the ranks to start with a bang. However, the onus will be on the top-order – Coetzer, Munsey, Berrington and MacLeod – to give them a favourable start.
Netherlands, on the other hand, are the underdogs but the presence of seasoned campaigners like Ryan ten Doeschate and Roelof van der Merwe can change that quick. If they can bowl tight to the explosive Scotland batting, sure they are in the contest.
