Scotland takes on New Zealand in a one-off ODI series in Edinburgh with the BlackCaps defeating the hosts recently 2-0 in a T20 series. New Zealand comes into the clash on the back of a world record as they managed 254 runs in the second T20. The attacking display on show from Mark Champman and Michael Bracewell must have deflated the Scottish bowlers and it will need some effort from them to bounce back. Their economy rates were substandard which is expected when the opposition batters score almost two runs every ball.
Chris Greaves in the middle order has been good but the Scottish team overall has been lacking the firepower in the batting unit. George Munsey and Matthew Cross have the potential to score big but have gifted away their wickets easily in the T20 series which needs correction. But the main problem is the bowlers who have been taken for plenty. With economy rates going as high as 15, Scotland could be in a spot of bother again in this match.
Martin Guptill and Finn Allen will open the innings for New Zealand while Mitchell Santer should continue to lead the team. Daryl Mitchell and James Neesham in the middle overs have been the power hitters while Dane Cleaver and Glenn Phillips are also qualtiy players. Ish Sodhi troubled the Scottish throughout the T20 series with his spin attack and it will not be a surprise if he is amongst the wickets again.
