Cricket Scotland has announced that they will host a two-match One-Day International series against Hong Kong in September at The Grange in Edinburgh.

In a media release Cricket Scotland revealed that the trophy will be called “The Braidwood Cup” and the games will be played on 8th and 10th September respectively.

The Braidwood Cup is named after William Drew Braidwood, the Scot headmaster of the Victoria English School, who also founded the Craigengower Cricket Club (CCC) in 1894.

The Chief Executive Office of Cricket Scotland, Malcolm Cannon is confident that the series against Hong Kong will be closely contested.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce our series with Hong Kong,” said Cannon.

“After the first edition of the Braidwood Cup in Hong Kong, we’re delighted to be able to host the next edition of games between our Associate compatriots.

“Our games against Hong Kong have always been well contested and we will be looking to put on a good show on and off the field.”

This two-match series will be the first time the two teams meet after Scotland defeated Hong Kong in the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 to claim their first win in International Cricket Council global events.
