The One-Day International between Scotland and England at Mannofield on 9th May has been sold out with a month to go before the two teams clash.

It will be England's first international match of the summer and Scotland's first since they qualified for the ICC World Cup 2015 - where the two sides will meet in the group stages.

The game will see the rivals play for the first time since 2010, and Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer is in bullish mood ahead of the match.

"World Cup qualification has been a huge boost to the team and we intend to go into this match fighting to win. 

"We’ve had a huge amount of support from the Scottish public all through the World Cup qualifiers and we’re pleased that so many fans are turning out for this match. 

"I'm sure it’ll be an amazing atmosphere.  But make no bones about it – we’re playing to win and we won’t pull any punches."

Roddy Smith, Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland, added: "I'm thrilled that next month’s match is a sell-out. 

"We have a strong team who are going onto the field with a positive attitude and fighting spirit, and we have fantastic support from both the cricketing public and the corporate community across the country. 

"We’re also delighted that Aberdeen, which has a strong cricketing base both in the city and surrounding areas, is playing host to this exciting match."
