NZ vs Scotland Live Streaming
Last match a shocker for many! Agreed West Indies are no long the 'mighty West Indies' we all knew during the 60s and 70s! But they weren't as weak as they are now. They lost to Ireland even after they scored a 300 plus score. This world cup seems to bring much more such surprises and upsets. Will this be a world cup of minnows? Too early to say. Let us wait and watch. We have another such match which would involve two unequally matched teams New Zealand and Scotland. Watch the live telecast and streaming of this world cup match on Star Sports in India. Fans in New Zealand can watch it live on SkySport and people out there in Europe can watch it live on EuroSport.
New Zealand is marching ahead as hot favourites for this world cup. They are flying high with a win already under their belt. They defeated Sri Lanka in the world cup opener. Now they take on minnows Scotland. They would be well aware of Scotland's strength which they showcased against West Indies in the warm ups.
Scotland is a fearless team and they would love to open their world cup account with a win. They defeated Ireland by 179 runs in the first warm up and suffered a narrow defeat to West Indies in the next warm up.

The venue for this match is University Oval, Dunedin in New Zealand. This is another picturesque stadium in New Zealand with a low seating capacity of 6000. This stadium will host three matches from this world cup - New Zealand vs Scotland, Afghanistan vs Sri Lanka and Afghanistan vs Scotland.
Mommsen, captain of Scotland is pretty confident about his team. Scotland has been winless in their last two world cup appearances (1999 and 2007). Captain believes the team is dynamic and even though most of the players don't have world cup experience they are energetic and passionate about the game.
New Zealand has seen a lot of success in last year and half. They registered a lot of wins away and at home. All they need to do is avoid losing the winning momentum. The team looks confident playing at home and making all possible efforts to clinch the trophy this time.
Following are the squads for both the teams:
New Zealand squad - Brendon McCullum, Martin Guptill, Trent Boult, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Grant Elliott, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi, Daniel Vettori, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Tom Latham.
Scotland squad - Kyle Coetzer, Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Josh Davey, Calum MacLeod, Hamish Gardiner, Matt Machan, Freddie Coleman, Preston Mommsen, Majid Haq, Rob Taylor, Iain Wardlaw, Safyaan Sharif, Michael Leask, Alasdair Evans.
