Scotland vs West Indies Match Prediction
With WI currently on 0 points, it is anticipated that this team might not make it to the final cut. However, some analyst still have hopes if events would happen this way:
If, for instance, Zimbabwe loses all six of its Super Six games, Sri Lanka loses to West Indies but wins its other two games, Oman wins two games, and Scotland and the Netherlands each win one, West Indies might still make the cut without the NRR factoring in. Sri Lanka will finish with eight points, followed by West Indies with six and the remaining teams with four apiece. On the other hand, Zimbabwe and West Indies might come in first and second if Zimbabwe wins every game and Sri Lanka loses every game.
West Indies will undoubtedly be eliminated if they lose to Scotland on Saturday, though, as at least two teams would undoubtedly finish with at least six points. To even have a chance of competing for the 2023 championship, West Indies will need all the stars and net run rates to align in their favor.
