Zimbabwe are set to tour Scotland for a two-match One-Day International series that will be played at The Grange in June.

The two games will be played on 15th and 17th June after Scotland complete their intercontinental and World Cricket League commitments with Namibia at the same venue.

This will be the second time the two countries will be locking horns with each other with the first meeting coming during the World T20 tournament in India in March 2016 where Zimbabwe emerged victorious by 11 runs.

Cricket Scotland CEO Malcolm Cannon is delighted to have a full member nation visiting the country and is hopeful of his team making the most out of it.

“Securing home international matches against a Full Member nation is something we have all worked tirelessly on over the past 18 months so I am delighted we have managed to make these matches a reality.

"The squad will relish the opportunity to put in some winning performances in front of a passionate home crowd.”

Scotland head Coach Grant Bradburn believes the series against Zimbabwe will be a good exposure to his side.

"This is brilliant for Cricket Scotland to be able to host a home series against a full member nation.

"This will be the first Full Member ODI that I have been involved in outside of a World Cup.

"The players will be desperate to match their skills against Zimbabwe on home soil."
