Scotland Will Host New Zealand & Australia For T20I and ODI

Scotland receives New Zealand for an ODI and a T20I, while Australia will contest a one-off T20I in late June.

All three games are played at The Grange, Edinburgh. Scotland head coach Shane Burger said: “The opportunity to play against two of the best teams in the world is an exciting prospect. We have beaten teams of this caliber before and will try to push them on all occasions. “

Burger added: “Cricket Scotland has big goals for 2020. It’s part of this vision to play against the world’s best and most challenging players and employees to keep improving on and off the pitch.”

The T20Is will be good practice for Scotland ahead of the T20 World Championship in Australia, which starts in October 2020. This has been confirmed by Cricket Scotland CEO, Gus Mackay.

“The orientation of these high-profile games further shows that Cricket Scotland is striving to play more games against the opposition of its full members and also offers our fans and supporters more international cricket.

“It is also a great opportunity to prepare for the ICC Men’s T20 World Championship, which is held in Australia in the same year.”
