Cricket. 2015 ICC World T20 Qualifiers

Scotland v Kenya

Scotland take on Kenya at The Grange in match four of their quest for a place in next year’s Twenty20 World Cup.

The ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2015 is a 14-team qualifying tournament taking place from 9 July to 26 July in Scotland and Ireland.  18 days of action will decide the top six sides that will join the 10 ICC full members for the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016.

Scotland host the qualifying tournament’s Pool B, with Afghanistan, the United Arab Emirates, Netherlands, Canada, Kenya and Oman competing in a round-robin contest.  Pool A is made up of Hong Kong, Ireland, Jersey, Namibia, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and United States.  The winners of each pool are guaranteed selection with the teams finishing in second, third and fourth in each pool fighting for the remaining four places via a series of play-offs.

Scotland have already played UAE, Netherlands and Afghanistan so the all-important final Pool B standings will be starting to take shape.  There’s a double-header of action today with Pool B rivals, Netherlands v Oman, first up at 10am, followed at 2.15pm by Scotland v Kenya.  Both matches are 20-overs-a-side and will last around three hours.  Stand by for a day of guaranteed excitement as all the teams strive for a win that will move them closer to either automatic qualification or a play-off place.

Admission on the day to both matches.  Free entry all spectators!

Scotland’s next match versus Canada takes place at Goldenacre on Thursday.  Match starts at 10am and entry is free.
