Defending champions England, deprived of ideal preparation due to rain, are set to face Scotland in their T20 World Cup opener on Tuesday. The match, taking place at the Kensington Oval, sees England, bolstered by Phil Salt's impressive IPL form and Jofra Archer's return, as overwhelming favorites.

Rain disrupted a four-match T20I series against Pakistan, but England, led by Jos Buttler, still enters the tournament as strong contenders. This meeting against Scotland marks their first in the T20 World Cup format, with the English team eyeing their third title.

England's recent form in white-ball cricket has been rocky, with a disappointing seventh-place finish in the ODI World Cup and successive defeats against West Indies. However, they secured a 2-0 series victory over Pakistan, rekindling some confidence as they take on Scotland.
