All eyes will be on Titwood today for the start of the 2015 North Sea Pro Series (NSP) and it’s an all-Scottish affair as last season’s ‘double’ champions the Highlanders Cricket take on Reivers Cricket.
This year’s NSP tournament has been restructured from the combined 50 and 20-over format of the inaugural competition, to a month of T20 double-headers, geared towards the T20 World Cup Qualifiers taking place in July. There are four regional teams in the competition, two from Scotland and two from the Netherlands – the Southern Seafarers and the Northern Hurricanes – each featuring players from the national squads of the respective countries.
Today’s encounter between Highlanders and Reivers will feature two T20 matches starting at 11am and 3pm. Expect the competition to be fierce and not just because both teams will be keen to seize the initiative in the series. With the T20 international qualifiers coming up later in the summer players from both teams will also be eager to stake an early claim for selection to the starting eleven.
First ball to be bowled at 11am. Entry if free to all spectators.
