Scotland A lost both of their opening matches against a North Select XI in the Women’s County T20 North Group as a Mark Coles’ squad returned to competitive action for the first time since the pandemic started.
After winning the toss The Wildcats opted elected to bat in Match 1 putting up 111 for 8 with Megan McColl top scoring on 20. The North Select Xi won by 8 wickets, hitting 112 of 16.2 overs.
In the second game of the day Scotland A were all out for 99, a total overhauled by their opponents for the loss of just 4 wickets.
For Coles, who recently took up the post of Scotland Women’s Head Coach the matches provided a useful opportunity to see his players in match conditions.
“It was great to see the young girls out there playing. We had three 16-year-olds in the team today so this was a really useful experience for them,” he said.
“Our opponents were a decent cricket team and had three Yorkshire Diamonds playing, so there are lots of positives for us to take from this but also a lot of areas that we have to go away and work on,” he added.
Scotland A will be back in action again next Sunday as they take on Lancashire in two more T20 fixtures at Carnforth.
