IRE vs SCO likely best performers

Likely best hitter:

Lorcan Tucker: The wicketkeeper-batsman scored two fifties during the three-match T20I series against Pakistan earlier this month. He has the experience of playing 68 T20Is and has scored 1,196 runs, scoring eight half-centuries. Tucker will play a key role at Ireland's No.3.

Best likely pitcher:

Marc Adair: Right-arm pacer Vivian Kingma caused all sorts of problems for the Scottish batters in the first match. Adair has more pace up his sleeve and could be a handful for the Scottish batting line-up.
