What are the hot tips and best bets as the tournament gets into full swing in the UAE?
<div><h2>Scotland vs Bermuda</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Thursday 24 October 2019 at Dubai International Cricket Sta-dium</strong></a></p><p>Depending on your bookmakers, Scotland were either favourites or second fa-vourites (behind Ireland) to take the glory in the ICC World T20 qualifiers in the United Arab Emirates. And although they are still on course – just about – two de-feats in four have meant that significant doubts have crept in about their pro-spects.</p><p>They lost their opener against Singapore, when appearing to be in total control of a chase, and were downed by Namibia on Wednesday. Namibia, it is true, have been underrated by most but it is a mark of Scotland’s woes that they have an identical record to their foes, likewise Singapore.</p><p>Against Namibia, the Scots were well-beaten. They were beaten by 24 runs after conceding 154 with 23-year-old JJ Smit smashing 43 from 22 balls. Scotland were without their captain, Kyle Coetzer, because of dehydration and even though Richie Berrington and Calum McLeod shared a promising partnership, they were never really in the hunt.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><p>We expect Coetzer to return for this important clash, which means we will swerve Berrington for top-bat honours. We’ve been keen on him this tournament but he’s not lived up to expectations.</p><p>Instead, there might be a wager to be had on the top Scots bowler market. Right-arm quick Safyaan Sharif has had a tremendous start to the tournament, three times taking two wickets to smash into his strike rate of more than 18 balls per wicket. He now has seven in total and came into the tournament with a 25 per cent win rate on top bowler.</p><p>Mark Watt has been a big rival for top bowler winner in recent times and the slow-left armer opened the bowling with Sharif against Nambia as Scotland looked to make use of wickets which can assist the spin bowlers. Watt has three wickets in three and his strike rate on career is almost bang on the same as Sha-rif. What will be key is price. If we can Sharif at around 4.5 (7/2) we’ll be happy to get involved.</p><p style="text-align:center"><br /><a href="" target="_blank" title="More Sports Tips"><strong>Click Here for More Tips</strong></a></p></div>
