Edinburgh, March 21, Tuesday at 03:30 PM IST
After the first ODI between the two nations got abandoned due to bad weather, both the sides will meet again on Tuesday at Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh for the second ODI. Having an eye on the mega event – CWC 2019, Sri Lanka will be looking for positive results when they take on the hosts in the afternoon.
Sri Lanka is having a poor run in ODIs and with the new skipper in Dimuth Karunaratne, the visitors will be desperate for a change in fortune ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019. They have lost their last eight ODIs and have not won a bilateral series in the last three years.
The match will begin at 03:30 PM IST.
Sri Lanka – L, L, L, L, L
Scotland – L, W, L, L, W
While the first game got washed away, brief showers are expected in the second ODI too. The Grange Cricket Club in Edinburgh is a batting paradise due to the flat surface and short boundaries. The last game played here between Scotland and Afghanistan witnessed 300+ runs on the board in both the innings. Batting first Scotland posted 325/7 and Afghanistan chased it down easily. So, another run-fest is expected tomorrow, if rain doesn’t play spoilsport. With the rain and overcast conditions in action, pacers can get some help.
