Scotland will travel to United Arab Emirates in December 2019 for the third round of Cricket World Cup League Two, to be played alongside UAE and USA.

Held between Sharjah Cricket Stadium and ICC Academy Oval 1, Scotland will play four One Day Internationals between 9th December and 15th December in Scotland’s second appearance in the competition.

Scotland and USA have won three of their first four Cricket World Cup League Two matches leaving them both on six points in the standingswith the UAE set to make their debut in the event.

Cricket Scotland High Performance Manager, Simon Smith said: “We responded well after an early setback in round one and will be looking to build on the three wins [in round one of Cricket World Cup League Two played in Aberdeen this summer], when we travel to UAE in December.

“We have played a variety of opposition across all formats at Sharjah Stadium, and it holds some good memories for us – Scotland won the first ICC Intercontinental Cup there, and three of our current squad have made international centuries at the historic venue. 

“This round promises to be a fascinating series, and it will be exciting to renew rivalries with USA, whom we haven’t met for a number of years, and UAE, with whom our matches are always competitive.”
