Cricket Scotland can today confirm the postponement of the Men’s ICC CWCL2 fixtures between Scotland, Namibia, and Oman, scheduled for 2-12 May.

The series, due to take place at Forfarshire CC, will now go ahead on new dates in July at the same venue.

The decision to postpone has been taken following consultation and agreements between the three competing nations and the ICC. The recent adverse weather affecting much of Scotland has severely hampered the preparation of pitches and the wider ground infrastructure at Forthill.

The rescheduled dates of the ICC CWCL2 series at Forfarshire are as follows:

Tuesday 16 July Scotland v Oman
Thursday 18 July Oman v Namibia
Saturday 20 July Scotland v Namibia
Monday 22 July Scotland v Oman
Wednesday 24 July Oman v Namibia
Friday 26 July Scotland v Namibia

The T20i between Scotland and Oman, scheduled for Tuesday 14 May at the same venue, has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.

Ticketing information for the rescheduled CWCL2 fixtures will be released in due course.

Paul Macari, Head of Operations and Commercial, said:

“It is obviously very disappointing to announce the cancellation of this series. The unprecedented poor weather we have seen this spring across the country has left an extremely high volume of water on the ground, and it would be hugely challenging to run this series in May without significant disruption to the playing schedule.

“I would like to thank everyone at Forfarshire CC for their efforts in recent weeks in extremely difficult circumstances, as well as the ICC, Namibia, and Oman for their understanding and flexibility in agreeing to the rescheduling.

“We are pleased to confirm the new dates for the series and will release updated details around ticketing shortly. We look forward to a successful series at Forfarshire CC in July, when hopefully we will have better weather and playing conditions to look forward to.”
