Scotland will begin their 2011/12 ICC Intercontinental Cup campaign when they play the Netherlands from 21st to 24th June in Aberdeen.

The revamped competition will see the top six Associate teams as well as two other sides - yet to be decided - compete against each other with Scotland bidding to go one better than last time out when they finished as runners-up to Afghanistan.

Following the four-day game, the two sides will then play three Twenty20 matches as part of their preparations for the ICC World Twenty20 2012 qualifying tournament, which takes place early next year.

The dates for the Twenty20 matches have been scheduled for 28th and 29th June with the third game yet to be scheduled precisely.
