Aberdeen: May 9, 2014

 

Rain delayed the scheduled start of the lone One-Day International (ODI) between Scotland and England in Aberdeen on Friday.

 

Persistent early morning rain saw the square at the Mannofield ground in north-east Scotland, where a sell-out crowd of 2,000 was expected, remain covered.

 

A minimum of 20 overs per side are required for a result to be declared.

 

This is England’s first match since Peter Moores was re-appointed head coach and their first in any format since an embarrassing 45-run loss to the Netherlands at the ICC World Twenty20 (T20) 2014 in Chittagong in March.

 

Scotland have qualified for next year’s one-day international World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, where they will be in the same pool as cross-border rivals England.
