Cricket Scotland and KNCB have agreed that Scotland’s men will take on the Netherlands in two One Day Internationals on 19th and 21st May in Rotterdam.

The matches will be Scotland’s first since December 2019 when they faced the UAE in Dubai and represent an important milestone for Shane Burger’s team as they begin their preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup ahead of them in October.

After a period on furlough due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scotland players returned to training at the start of April and are keen to get back to international duties.

Gus Mackay, CEO of Cricket Scotland said: “It’s been a long wait for the players and staff, but we have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the team are able to start playing international cricket again as soon as possible and we are delighted to be able to announce these matches against the Netherlands

“I’d like to thank everyone at KNCB who has worked so hard with us to make these fixtures happen while respecting all COVID-19 protocols. It’s great to be looking ahead to international cricket again after so long without a match.”

Roland Lefebvre, High Performance Manager of KNCB said: “The ODI matches against Scotland will be our first big games in the Netherlands for two years. It has been a big challenge to organize international cricket during the Covid pandemic but we are very pleased and excited to welcome Scotland on our shores and look forward to the contest which is part of our preparation for the first Super League series against Ireland in early June.”

The squad of 15 who will be travelling to Rotterdam will be announced by Cricket Scotland in early May
