Scotland is set to face Afghanistan in the T20 cricket as they play their first match in the super 12s stage later today. 

It comes after they topped group B last week following their win over Oman on Thursday. 

Now the competition steps up, with their overall win in the first round qualifying the team for Group 2 with Afghanistan, India, Namibia, New Zealand and Pakistan. 

Having won all three of their qualifying matches, Scotland can take confidence as they head into the next tougher stage of the tournament, where they will aim to put pressure on the Afghan side. 

Afghanistan may be the favourites on paper, but Scotland can't be ruled out after their impressive performance in qualifying.
