Ireland Women are all set to host Scotland Women for a four-match T20I series starting from May 23. All the four T20I matches will be played at the Civil Service Cricket Club, Stormont in Belfast.
The Ireland Women and Scotland Women last played against each other during the 2019 ICC Women’s World T20 Qualifier. Ireland Women registered a brilliant 9-wicket win against Scotland Women in the most recent match between these two teams in August 2019. However, Scotland Women also emerged victorious against Ireland Women during one of the matches in the 2019 ICC Women’s World T20 Qualifiers. This will be the first time since 1997 that Women’s international cricket will take place at the Civil Service Cricket Club, Stormont in Belfast. The upcoming T20I series will also mark Ireland Women’s return to the international cricket circuit after several of their series cancelled during 2020 due to Covid-19.
“It goes without saying that we’re pleased to see this series given the green light – with a T20 World Cup Qualifier set for August and a 50-over World Cup Qualifier in December, we need to play as much competitive cricket this year as we can.
The Scots will be a good challenge, and ICC ranking points will be on the line, so we’re very much gearing up for a competitive series. It will also be fantastic to see the Ireland Women’s international team play at Stormont for the first time since 1997,” said Ireland Women head coach Ed Joyce.
