Pakistan as for an early preparation of ICC Champions Trophy have scheduled two series in Scotland and Ireland. They will play a two match series against each of the team and for this reason they will be arriving in Europe 15 days prior to the start of the tournament. Pakistan is clearly favourite for the series as Scotland is no match for the Pakistan team. And they also lack experience of playing against big teams. So this series is an opportunity for the Scottish cricketers to gain some experience playing against big team like Pakistan. But cricket is a game of uncertainty and on a particular day whoever plays well will win the match. And Pakistan is the most unpredictable team of this uncertain game. Pakistan after losing their last series against South Africa will have an opportunity to get back the momentum and go in to the Champions with a good confidence. Scotland will only play for an upset and if they can do that they will be more than satisfied. But their main motive will be to at least challenge Pakistan and give them a god fight.

Head to head: Pakistan and Scotland have played 2 matches in total and Scotland never ever defeated Pakistan in any format of matches.
Pakistan: Pakistan is currently no.6 in the ICC ranking. They have never won ICC Champions Trophy. So they will want to win this only tournament which they still couldn’t win. For this reason they have been training hard for past few days and even to get used to the English condition they have left for Europe more than 2 weeks earlier and before playing the friendly matches they are playing 4 additional matches 2 against Scotland and 2 against Ireland just to get set to the condition. they have made several changes to the squad which played against South Africa. Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Younis Khan and Umar Gul have been dropped from the side for poor performance in the last series while Umar Amin and Ehsan Adil retained their position in the 15 men squad.
Scotland: Scotland would be very happy just to get the opportunity of playing Pakistan as many of the players have no experience of playing against big teams. Like Pakisyan. Being an associate member of the ICC they got this opportunity to play against Pakistan. They are not even in the ICC ODI ranking as they have not played and won sufficient matches to be in the ranking. For Scotland this two matches are pf really importance and at least draw aginst Bangladesh in the series for the 1st time in their cricketing history. They thou have selected an experienced squad for the tour still none would believe that such chage have much issues in determining the out come of the series result, Pakistan would only be happy if the can win the series 2-0 while a draw or some good fight would be enough to satisfy Scotland.
