Australia A Fixture
Cricket Scotland has announced they will be hosting a visit from Australia A next season in a four-day fixture against Scotland, in preparation of their 2013 Ashes tour.
It is anticipated that spectators will get the chance to see one of Australia’s great batsmen on home soil, with the likes of Peter Siddle and Usman Khawaja likely to be involved.
The fixture could well see a return for former-Saltire and Uddingston batsman, Eddie Cowan, who spent the 2008 season in the country. He has recently broken into the Australian test side and scored his maiden century for his country against South Africa.
With the announcement of the fixture Cricket Scotland’s Head of Performance, Andy Tennant commented, “It will be a fantastic occasion to host world class opposition in an Ashes summer and we are looking forward to the challenge of playing against a combination of their test squad and their finest emerging talent.”
The venue will likely be the Grange Club in Edinburgh for the fixture, scheduled for June, although this is still to be confirmed.
