Cricket Scotland announced today that Scotland will welcome Australia to play an ODI on Tuesday 3rd September, 2013. The match has been provisionally scheduled to be played at the Citylets Grange in Edinburgh.
With the Adam & Company One Day International against England only two months away the visit of Australia will be another exciting day for Scottish cricket fans to look forward to.
The Australians, who will be taking part in the Ashes tour of England, will travel north after their Test match series to play a One Day International against Scotland before returning to England for their ODI series.
Australia last visited Scotland in 2009, in a match that the visitors won, despite a five wicket haul by Scotland's Gordon Goudie.
Cricket Scotland CEO, Roddy Smith commented, "This is a great announcement for us to be able to make as it provides an excellent focal point for our players and supporters in 2013. With Scotland globally ranked 15th for ODI cricket and 13th for T20, a huge achievement in the world's second biggest game, this will provide yet another excellent opportunity to show our loyal supporters how our young and home-grown team is developing."
''Hosting the world's top teams is vital in giving our side opportunities to play the world's best teams and affording the Scottish cricketing public a chance to see Australia in Scotland. To be able to follow England's forthcoming visit for the Adam & Company ODI on August 12th with their great rivals a year later is fantastic news for Scottish cricket''
