Scotland & Ireland to Tour Netherlands for Tri T20I Series

Scotland Gear Up for T20 World Cup with Tri-Series in Netherlands

Scotland will face the Netherlands and Ireland in a three-match T20 series in Amstelveen as a final tune-up for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States.

Ireland will also take part in the series. All three teams competing in the tri-series have experience in the T20 World Cup. Ireland boasts the most appearances with seven, reaching the Super-8 stage in 2009 and the Super-12 stage most recently in 2022.

Scotland and the Netherlands have both participated five times, with Scotland achieving a Super-12 appearance in 2021. Notably, the Netherlands impressed in the 2022 World Cup, advancing to the Super-12 and finishing a strong eighth place.

The tri-series, scheduled from May 18-24, will see each team play each other twice, providing valuable preparation for the global showpiece which begins on June 1. All matches will be streamed live by the European Cricket Network (ECN).

Following the series, Scotland will depart for the Caribbean on May 26. Their tournament opener is a marquee clash against defending champions England in Barbados on June 4.

Scotland has been placed in Group B alongside Australia, Namibia, and Oman. Ireland finds itself in Group A, where they will battle it out with India, Pakistan, Canada, and co-hosts USA. The Netherlands are placed in Group D with South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

Scotland secured its spot in the T20 World Cup by defeating Ireland by eight runs in the T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier final held in Edinburgh last July. Doug Watson, the South African coach who led Scotland on an interim basis during the qualifiers, will be returning for a permanent stint as head coach next month.

Watson’s second tenure kicks off with a series of ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 one-day internationals against Namibia and Oman from May 2-12 at Forfarshire’s Forthill ground. A T20 match against Oman is also scheduled for May 14.
