London: Jan 17, 2013

Scotland will host Pakistan for a two-match One-Day International (ODI) series in May this year, Cricket Scotland announced on Thursday.

According to International Cricket Council’s (ICC) official website, the two fixtures are scheduled on May 17 and May 19 at the Citylets Grange, Edinburgh.

The two teams, hitherto, have clashed thrice, with the last tie played six years ago at the ICC 2007 T20 World Cup.

Captain of the Scottish national team, Gordon Drummond said, “These fixtures are a fantastic boost for Scottish cricket. We have the chance to qualify for two global ICC events in 2013, and now we find we also have the opportunity to play two top test nations with Australia also visiting for an ODI in September. These matches are particularly important for the development of the current squad.

“We are all really looking to welcoming the Pakistan team to Scotland once again, and these fixtures will undoubtedly build on the already strong ties between the Pakistani/Scots community.

“It’s a fantastic platform for us to show what we are capable of, as we did with victory against Bangladesh last year- these are the sort of matches that every Scottish squad member will want to be involved in.”

Cricket Scotland Chief Executive Roddy Smith too expressed delight over the scheduled series, saying that the Pakistan series will be vital for the development of the game in the country. He said, “We are delighted to have secured these two ODIs against Pakistan. Following the ICC’s additional investment in Cricket Scotland through their TAPP scheme, we committed to secure further matches against the Full Members.

“These games are vital to continue our progress and measure ourselves against the best in the world, and are integral to the on field improvements desired for by the ICC. We are very grateful to the Pakistan Cricket Board for their support in making these games happen.”
