Match 1 of Scotland versus Namibia in the World Cricket League at the Grange in Edinburgh. Play starts at 10.45am and tickets are available.
An African summer of international cricket got underway earlier this week with Scotland taking on Namibia at New Cambusdoon on the west coast in the Intercontinental Cup. A four-day fixture ahead of two World Cricket League Championship matches between Scotland and Namibia, of which today is the first one, followed by two one-day internationals against Zimbabwe at Grange Cricket Club.
Kyle Coetzer will lead the Scotland side with Con de Lange again named as vice-captain. Stuart Whittingham will build on his Scotland career after impressing on debut against Sri Lanka.
Scotland head coach Grant Bradburn said in the lead up: “The team are looking forward to this block of international cricket at home throughout June. Preparation over the winter and early part of the summer has been excellent and the players are now itching to play. The I-Cup is a format we value highly, however we have had limited actual game time, as 11 of our 16 days of I-Cup cricket during this 3-year cycle, have been washed out. We look forward to our opening contest vs Namibia in Ayr, where the conditions normally offer something for every skill set.”
