Scotland’s international men’s side will take on Sri Lanka next Summer in two ODI’s as part of the 2019 Summer Internationals.

The matches to be played on 18th and 21st May will offer quality opposition for a Scotland side aiming to build on the success of 2018.

Sri Lanka last visited Scotland in 2011 winning the ODI comfortably by 183 runs, however it was a different outcome when the sides played in 2017 in two 50 over matches at Beckenham in Kent.

In the first match, Scotland got their revenge and recorded their first One-Day win over a Full ICC member with a 7 wickets victory having batted to an impressive 291/3.

Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer said “We are really excited to be playing these ODI’s versus another Full Member. Following our 1-1 draw in the 50 overs series last year, it will be a real challenge for us to go one better and win this ODI series.”

He added “After the success of 2018, the team is mindful that we face new pressures and higher expectations from both Scottish cricket fans and also the wider global cricket community.

“There is nothing better that playing cricket at home in front of a full house of Scottish fans and we are determined to continue to improve on our recent performances. We will be well prepared for these matches and go out to win.”

Details on the venue and tickets will be announced in mid December.
