Scotland Internationals against New Zealand postponed due to COVID-19
Scotland’s upcoming One Day International and T20 International against the BLACKCAPS at The Grange, Edinburgh in June have been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Gus Mackay, Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland, said: “We are obviously disappointed that New Zealand’s European tour has been postponed, however, it was to be expected under the current circumstances.
“We will work closely with New Zealand Cricket and look at opportunities in the future when they are next touring Europe.”
NZC Chief Executive, David White, said: “These are extremely difficult times for international cricket and we feel deeply for our friends in the northern hemisphere, whose season has been so badly disrupted.
“I know our players, support staff and BLACKCAPS fans were very much looking forward to the upcoming visit and are disappointed this decision needed to be taken.
“Hopefully, in brighter and less dangerous times, we can return and play the games that have been postponed.”
The two matches were to be played at The Grange in Edinburgh on 10th and 12th June. Those that had purchased tickets in advance will receive information in the next week on refunds from Cricket Scotland’s ticketing partner, Ticketline.
Cricket Scotland is awaiting information on the T20 International versus Australia and an announcement will be made once further details are known. An announcement is also expected on Scotland’s ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 fixtures against Nepal and Namibia due to take place in July at Titwood and The Grange.
