Cricket Scotland has announced that venues for upcoming international matches against Canada have been switched from Aberdeen's Mannofield ground.

They will now play the Intercontinental Cup game at Uddingston and the two One-Day Internationals at Citylets Grange as Mannofield continues to undergo repairs to the square following vandalism last year.

The Intercontinental Cup match begins on 4th July before the two World Cricket League ODIs are played on 9th and 11th July.

Scotland currently lie third in the table with the top two teams qualifying automatically for the 2015 World Cup.

"It is a shame we have had to move the games away from Mannofield as the ground has been our first class home for many seasons and always provides a fantastic facility for the games," Cricket Scotland Chief Executive Roddy Smith said.

"However, with the ongoing remedial work at the ground, it is sensible to make a decision in enough time to allow alternative arrangements to be made. 

"We look forward to returning to Mannofield in the very near future.  We are very grateful to the Grange and Uddingston clubs for agreeing to take on these extra games."
