England Vs Scotland: The Panel Prediction, Tips And World T20 Preview

England vs Scotland Predictions 

England begin the defence of their World T20 crown against Scotland in Barbados on Tuesday (3.30pm, Sky Sports Main Event). 

Jos Buttler’s side were triumphant in Australia in 2022, although UK betting sites make them third favourites behind India and the Baggy Greens to reclaim their crown. 

They warmed up for the World T20 with a series win over Pakistan, albeit one that was blighted by rain in two of the four matches. But, England can feel confident ahead of the tournament even with the potential skin of Scotland in their opener. 

Scotland won the last meeting between the two sides back in 2018 in a 50-over contest. Calum MacLeod was the hero with a score of 140 as England failed to chase down 372 in Edinburgh. 

Scotland will be desperate to inflict another famous defeat on their rivals, although England are firm favourites at a best-price 1/14 to get the win in their opener.

The Panel has weighed up the form guide, trends and betting markets to make three predictions for the Group B showdown in Barbados.

England vs Scotland Prediction: Buttler In Prime Form 

England have a point to prove in the World T20 after their dismal performance in the 50-over World Cup last season.  

Buttler’s men surrendered their title without a fight, losing six of their nine matches. As captain, Buttler came in for his fair share of criticism, especially after a shocking time in India with the bat.  

The 33-year-old has had time away from international cricket and looks back to his best following a stint for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, where he scored two centuries.

He returned to England and displayed his brilliance once more with 84 in the second T20 against Pakistan before following up it with a 21-ball 39 in the final match of the series. Teams will be wary of his skill at the top of the order, but a Buttler in form is almost unstoppable.  

He was a notable absentee last time these sides met and one that could have swung the balance in England’s favour. The Panel are expecting big things out of Buttler to kickstart the tournament. They like the odds of 13/8 for Buttler to score 50 runs or more with Betway
