The exact date of the match is yet to be decided but Sunday 12 August has been suggested.

The first official ODI between the countries, at the Grange in 2008, was abandoned as a draw. In 2010, a 4,000-plus crowd saw Scotland lose by seven wickets despite a half-century from Kyle Coetzer.

When the latest match was first announced, Cricket Scotland chief executive Roddy Smith said: “It is fantastic news. They undertook to play in Scotland every second year and have been true to their word.”
