EDINBURGH: Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat against Scotland on Tuesday in the first of two T20Is in Edinburgh.
Scotland registered their first-ever victory over neighbours England at Edinburgh on Sunday, bowling England out for 365 after posting their highest score of 371 for five.
The shock win has boosted the associate nation's confidence, and they will be looking to upset Pakistan, the highest-ranked T20I team. Scotland are currently placed 11th in the T20I rankings.
Pakistan, during their ongoing UK tour, beat Ireland in a historic one-off Test before going on to draw the two-match Test series against England.
But the Green Shirts are not underestimating their next challenge.
“Every T20 match is a new game, [anything can happen] in T20s," said Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed after winning the toss.
The second T20I will be played on Wednesday, June 13 in Edinburgh.
Both the matches will start at 8pm Pakistan Standard Time.
