Group B coverage will begin on Day 2 after an exciting start in Group A over the weekend, which saw Namibia shocking former champion Sri Lanka and The Netherlands fending off UAE in the opening games on Sunday.
West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran will lead a side that is lacking international experience, but he will be hoping the likes of Rovman Powell, Brandon King, Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, and Obed McCoy, Sheldon Cottrell –who are all expected to feature in the first game –can give the former champion an encouraging winning start at the tournament.
Both Scotland and the West Indies enter this game on less than-ideal form in their respective last five games, as between the two nations, there is only one win in 10 games combined.
The West Indies comes in with a two-game losing streak and has lost four of the last five internationals, while Scotland has dropped all five of the previous international games coming into this tournament.
Scotland will look to skipper Richie Berrington and bowlers Josh Davey and Brad Wheal to carry the heavy load against a West Indies team that has looked shaky with both bat and bowl in recent fixtures.
